Celestron has released a new product for sky gazers called the Celestron SkyScout (Sky Scout). The device works like many sophisticated telescopes in that it uses your location to identify specific stars and constellations. What makes this device different is that it derives your location via GPS technology.
The Celestron SkyScout can identify about 6,000 unique stars through something very similar to a GPS POI database. The device includes a USB cable for downloading software as well as an SD card slot for storing additional data onboard the device.
To use the simply point the device in the air and look through the lens. Clicking one button will give you a map highlighting what you are looking at in the sky from your location and the angle you are looking in the sky. Finding a specific star or planet with the SkyScout is easy as the device leads you with direction arrows towards where you should be looking.
