Though not a critical tool, especially for a determined stargazer, personal planetarium devices are useful for casual stargazers and complete beginners who love electronic gadgets. These devices, such as the Celestron SkyScout and Meade Mysky, are computers with onboard GPS systems that help you find your way around the sky. Just point these devices at an object in the night sky, and this device will tell you all about what star, planet, or deep sky sight you’re looking at. Or, you can enter the name of an object and the device will help you find the object in the night sky. You can also connect some of these devices to your go-to telescope to help move it around. Very cool toys.
