The Celestron SkyScout is a revolutionary handheld device which instantly identifies and/or locates any celestial object visible to the unaided eye, providing educational and entertaining information, both in text and audio.  A fun learning tool for all ages, the Celestron Sky Scout personal planetarium puts the knowledge of an expert astronomer in the palm of your hand!

Turn on the Celestron SkyScout and it will automatically use its global positioning unit to pinpoint your location.  Once there, you simply look through the viewing screen with the adjustable brightness red bullseye to center on the area of your choice.  Then push the button and the Celestron SkyScout Personal Planetarium will identify the object it is aiming at.


What's more, the SkyScout provides a database full of information, including right ascension, declination, magnitude, and more... through over 50,000 stars, planets, and constellations!  Even the most experienced amateur astronomer can fully appreciate this clever gadget.  After all, it makes identifying difficult stars such as Pi and Xi a breeze.  For added fun, the Celestron SkyScout truly is a personal planetarium.  A pleasant voice provides great information and stories through the earbud.  About 200 of the most popular celestial objects are available in scrolling text and narrated audio.  The audio clips are a great way to learn and share information.

Accessories for the Celestron SkyScout include a clever speaker system which allows more than one user at a time to hear what the unit has to say.  There are also expansion cards which extend the capabilities and even a “connect” unit which allows the SkyScout to be directly connected to a computerized Celestron telescope.
