Today 12/5/2012 starts from 8:31AM PST, Amazon's Lightning deal has the SkyScout sale. Don't know the price yet.

<edit>
Now know the price: $99.99 with free shipping.
(4 hour deal window.)

<edit 2>
Deal is over (21% sold...)

The ones from woot.com seem to have languages other than English. The language can't be changed by updating the firmware, but Celestron was prompt in providing an RMA to swap for the English version. This may have been because mine also has a minor mechanical defect.
