Quote:I have had 2. They both acted the same. They even got the same wrong GPS reading when near my truck out side and both got the correct reading when in the middle of my back yard. I found the "locate" to be inaccurate but the " identify" to be fairly accurate. Don T.
Quote:I put the SkyScout on a camera tripod ...
Quote:(and if it knows which way is North already, why bother).
Quote:Yes it is odd. When I "Located" the moon it was abought 5 degrees to the left, when I "identified" the moon it was correct. I'll eventualy get another and we will see if it's the same. Don T.
Quote:My SkyScout arrived today. Acquired GPS in about one minute and so far has IDd stars and such perfectly. Only needs a right-angle viewing adapter to save my stiff neck
Quote:Where can I find a right-angle viewing adapter?
Quote:just wonder if a person could use one of these things with a lasor pointer attached to it on a tripod, locate a object, then point your scope in that location. at least it would get you close. don
