5.0 out of 5 stars SkyScout, September 22, 2008
I purchased the SkyScout for my wife--she likes birds and the night sky. It works well as billed and is easy to use though we are pretty tech oriented. It does take a little time to acquire orientation when you first come out and turn it on. It is very accurate and we use it with the Celestron maps. Note--as everyone does--that it does not magnify. It is purely an identification aid. I tried its competitor from Meade and found it a lot more clunky to use and in reality it was more of a talking video tour. This unit can do that as well but it is not its primarly use. Tough, pretty compact and easy to use though not foolproof. Price has dropped some and is fair for the capability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sky Maps Review, September 22, 2008
This review is from: Celestron Sky Maps (Plastic Comb)
The Celestron Sky Maps make a good adjuct to he SkyScout. They help you with a broader view of the sky in your area and give you a basis to search for objects more easily with the hand held. They "glow" in the dark to make there use on a dark night easier. They can be used alone and replaced older and less user friendly maps I had.
