Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered what the heck am I looking at. Wonder no more with this weeks Gadget. The Meade mySky. Just point it to what your looking at and shoot.
Meade introduces a revolutionary way to explore out universe. The new Meade mysky is an easy to use, multi-media device that will guide you through the night sky, and if you have a Meade computerized telescope it will interface nicely. Check it out Here. and Gearlog has a nice review Here.
So how does this device know what you’re pointing at? Built in are a GPS unit, accelerometers, and magnetic north sensors, so it knows where you are and can calculate the mySKY’s aim and positioning. It works out of the box, and pretty instantaneously. There are over 30,000 objects in its database, so most of what’s visible to the naked eye can be identified. And the mySKY’s updateable: It comes with an SD card, so you can pull new info off the Web and add it.
