“Do I need to use a telescope with the Meade MySky?”
The answer is a definite “No” The My Sky and the Sky Scout are self contained units. All you need is batteries and a clear sky to put them to work for you. With either unit, you just aim at the star or other object in the sky you wish to identify, then hit the “identify” button and the computer searches its data bank and supplies you with not only an identification, but also a description. Of course, the idea, here, is that this will stimulate an interest in astronomy and possibly lead to the purchase of an astronomy binocular or a telescope.
