Is it passible to use 2 external speakers useing a spliter?
And 2nd, what can I exspect as an emprovement to the New Bigginers exspantion card I ordered and how can the Advance Exspantion card do more ,what should I exspect?

I know the Celestron has a great amount of Info in the memory when you first get one. I do out reach with All kinds of groups, and was wondering the best way this device will help, and how people used it to work inprove their presentatios,a how to place an adaitional 2nd speaker if possible,and inproved adable information.
Thanks, Bill

Yes, it should be OK to use two speakers.

I'm sorry, but I believe the answer to your next question is "never." The Skyscout (and Meade's similar device) have been supplanted by cell phone apps.

HI UR,
I think I didn't phrase the second question correctly.
First I don't have one of those fancy phones with Apps.
I'm still in the Caveman mode when it comes to technology. I just got the Celestron Sky Scout "Beginners Exspansion Card" and I like it. I am looking forward to finding me the "Advance Exspantion Card" and seeing how much more I can improve in presenting info to the public. I have an exstencive library of Books,Atlases,etc. As I get older, my memory card doesn't always work. I think your answer now to my second question you answered is that these New Apps. are more extensive and always adding info and making things in Astronomy cooler to see and hear. Is that correct ?
I wish I could afford such devices,but I will muddle threw and hope someone can learn something New about the Universe we live in. I hope someday you can make it to Tennessee again to one of our Astronomy Major Star Parties. It is always good too talk to you.
Bill

Sorry, but I don't believe there will _ever_ be any more expansion cards for the SkyScout. I don't believe Celestron will continue to sell if for much longer. :(
