It's Maxpilote just google it. There's a users group on yahoo.

Developer is French. It's fantastic and free.

(And I own ACP and CCDAP)

This sticky thread is getting a little dated.

I don't remember for 2011.
2012, with no hesitation, I would say SkyFi and sky safari.
In 2013, I would vote for Celestrons plate solving auto calibration StarSense accessory, though as it still has a few software bugs, maybe should hold off until 2014

Juice-lid vibration suppression pads for the 2012-13 contest. The APM 6" ED lens has my vote for the 2014 version.

Looking forward to next years contest already....the suspense is unbearable!

I would like to +1 the discontinued Bushnell Ares 5/SW Heritage 130p/AWB onesky (either name its all the same scope). It got some new reputation attention in the last months also in sky&telescope and I think it more than deserves it.

an amazing little "tabletop" scope that puts the most bang for the buck in the class of REALLY portable scopes. it was the reason I got dragged into this wonderful hobby. Its focuser is not perfect I agree but with some tuning like for any dob (really ANY dob) it provides an amazing hard-destroy but "precise" instrument for the casusal and more-advanced visual observer not matter where he goes/flies/drives/(maybe even swims? :P)

and of course sky safari pro since it is the single most powerful tool everybody currently needs in the field who does not want to drag along all those deep sky atlas sheets

Definitely a cool product but will even be more interesting when they have the 2x barlow product.
