>I sometimes play music while doing astronomy. Not too informative, but music never fails to do wonders for my spirit and soul. In the old days, I had to deal with cassette players and then CD players, but now I use an mp3 player (iPod). Very handy. For those of you more interested in information, though, a sky computer, such as the Meade Mysky Plus will talk to you and provide a lot of very useful information. It even includes a set of ear buds so you don’t bother the neighbors or, maybe, so they don’t bother you. When they see what a Meade Mysky is all about, they may want to borrow it.
