MySky by Meade
Meade have launched the MySky or My Sky which is an interesting educational and useful astronomy multimedia tool with built-in GPS. The MySky is not a telescope and does include any lens or eyepieces. So what you see on the MySky screen is not what you are actually looking at but high quality astronomy images stored on the MySky.
All you have to do is point the MySky at the night sky, and it will locate and identify celestial objects. No knowledge of the night sky is needed, it will align what it sees, and is capable of identifying over 30,000 celestial wonders. Just pull the trigger to find out about the planets, stars, nebula and galaxies in your night sky.
Incredibly easy to use
Turn mySKY on and it automatically determines your position, thanks to a 12 channel GPS receiver and magnetic north sensors. Constellation maps are correctly oriented based on your current position, date and time. Move quickly through mySKY’s menus with one-thumb navigation.

If you already have a computerised Meade GoTo telescope you can buy a separate cable to link up the MySky to your telescope. Then when you point your MySky in a particular direction your telescope will follow you and point at the object. The telescope will also use the GPS functionality in the MySky.
