>Here’s a question I received over the weekend.
“Is the MySky complicated to use?”
The Meade MySky and its similar competing product, the Celestron SkyScout, are not complicated to use by comparison to most computerized products. If you can navigate the typical digital camera menu or handle a PC computer, these handheld astronomy computers will be a breeze. Even the GPS function is automatic. Just power up the Mysky or the Sky scout and the GPS loads on its own. Like any GPS unit, though, you will need to be in a fairly open area to acquire signals and since both units incorporate magnetic sensors, you should also avoid large metal objects. The typical backyard lawn should work, fine.
