Celestron SkySout – Best of America
Reader’s Digest magazine has awarded the Celestron SkyScout a “Best of America” award by the editors. The SkyScout is a telescope which uses an internal GPS to determine the viewer’s location. The device also uses magnetic and gravitational fields to determine what direction you are looking and viewing angle. From there it can tell you what object in the sky you are looking at.
“SkyScout transforms the night sky into a personal planetarium that engages astronomy buffs and stargazers, as well as families, students, campers and ‘ordinary people’ of all levels and backgrounds,” said Joseph A. Lupica Jr., president and CEO of Celestron. “After five years in development, it is rewarding to see the SkyScout recognized by America’s premier consumer magazine, reaffirming that the timing is right for SkyScout’s introduction into the consumer marketplace.”
