Quote:GOTO for moon features is rather overkill. It just isn't large enough to warrant such a contraption. A free program like Virtual Moon Atlas will suffice and MOON HD on iPhone as well. A GOTO program though... You kno it'll probably happen or some eyepiece that flashes the names of the craters you scan over but its still overkill. There's a point where GOTO would do more harm than good and this is it.

"The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three."
Quote:Regarding GoTo, I used to be a GoTo basher but have come to realize that whether you walk, drive, or fly to the Grand Canyon, it's still looks as grand once you're there. The same can be said for what we see in the sky. Yes, the fliers didn't see all of what the drivers did, and the drivers missed what the walkers saw along the way but they go all got there.

Quote:Hi Guys, sorry I was away. Thanks a lot for all your inputs. Virtual Moon Atlas seems to be a good alternative. I might use my Toucam Pro to view the Moon feature side by side with VMA.
