Features

This is out LAST Skyscout ... and they do not make it anymore!The Celestron SkyScout is a handheld, portable, non-magnifying celestial viewing device that can instantly identify and/or locate any of the more than 6,000 celestial objects visible to the naked eye. It transforms the night sky into a personal planetarium for stargazers, families, students, and astronomers alike.

It makes learning the stories of the sky and finding your way around the sky easier than ever before.

The AA battery-operated Celestron SkyScout is about the size of a small camcorder (7.4" x 4" x 2.5") and weighs less than 16 ounces, making it easy to carry and use in the field. Its patented technology combines a GPS receiver (which calculates the time, date, and location on Earth of the user, based on signals from Earth-orbiting satellites); software that calculates the current positions of over 6000 stars, planets, and other celestial objects from its substantial celestial database; and 3-axis sensors that measure the Earth's gravitational and magnetic fields to determine the true orientation of the SkyScout to the Earth, no matter in what orientation you hold the SkyScout.

There's no need to hold it level or point it north to get it aligned on the sky.

When the SkyScout is turned on, its internal GPS system automatically determines where on Earth you are located. You don't have to enter your location or the date and time to start observing. The SkyScout does it for you automatically. Its user-friendly point and shoot technology lets you point it at any visible object in the sky and read a scrolling commentary about the object and its history in the SkyScout's illuminated 5-line LED display. The SkyScout comes with compact earbud-type earphones so you can also hear the displayed information narrated for you without having to take your eye away from the SkyScout's non-magnifying viewfinder. Optional speakers that plug into the earphone output let a group of people hear the commentary simultaneously. The database contains scientific information for over 6000 objects, plus entertaining stories for the 200 most spectacular celestial objects.
