Easy to use and much better than a phone app,
This review is from: Celestron SkyScout GPS Star Locater (Electronics)
This really is a great device for navigating the stars and planets. There has been a lot of talk about phone apps which can do the same job but in reality they are not even close, often leaving you guessing as to exactly where they are pointing. This Celestron Locater centres the object exactly in the viewfinder so there is no doubt as to which object you are looking at. My knowledge of star navigation is actually quite good but when the skies (as they often are) are only partially clear then making out the constellations for navigating to the correct star is often impossible. This device solves all of that and is much easier to use than a GOTO mount on a telescope system since no alignment process is required.
