one of the most frustrating parts of amateur astronomy for the person starting is finding objects in the sky.  most experienced amateur astronomers will tell you that learning the night sky is extremely valuable even if you are using a new goto telescope.  sky charts help and the good old hunt and peck till you find it method works but is slow.
here is a new product (skyscout by
celestron ) that will change how we learn the night sky.  i would expect this item would be great for the observer using binoculars, stargazers, dob/non-goto users and for checking out seeing conditions in a given part of the sky.  i think that anyone that loves the night sky or has a child that loves the stars will want to get this new product.

i found a review  click here for review and it is  well worth a read.  gives you an idea of how big this new product is.

details about the product can be found at click here for details

imagine a product that you can point at the sky and identify what you are looking at or instruct it to lead you to your selected object/target.

 checkout the new celestron's skyscout.
