Which star is that? SkyScout can help you

You have a telescope at your home and you gaze from it and try to figure out what is the name of the brightest star. If your knowledge is weak about the things present in the sky, than SkyScout can help you. It really is a unique gadget as it is a telescope, GPS unit and astrological encyclopedia integrated in one. When you point SkyScout in the sky, it will identify an object and give you its detailed information from its database of over 6,000 objects. The information will be in audio and text format. It has some exciting features like Must See List which shows the 10 top things to see in the sky at that night using the GPS technology, Constellation Lessons etc. More information here.
