I haven't gotten much this year besides some used Naglers but Sky Safari Pro with iPad has opened up a whole new world. The Argo navis library is good but Sky Safari pro gives you so much more and it works flawlessly with my ServoCat gen 3 after gary made a modifocation to accept the serial connection. LUV it!!!

I second this.

The performance you get for the money is hard to beat.

Thirded. An excellent eyepiece for any mass-market dobsonian user, and for many premium scope users for that matter.

Paramount MX anyone? I dont own one, but I've yet to see somebody disappointing in it. It also has an excellent set of features!
