Meade mySKY PLUS Personal Sky Exploration Guide 04542 Product Info

Meade MySky PLUS Personal Sky Exploration Guide 04542 is the latest and greatest gadget and astronomy instrument from Meade. The Meade mySKY PLUS is a new version of the innovative Meade mySKY 04540. Meade has made numerous changes and additions to the original mySKY. The Meade mySKY series includes new multimedia presentations with Hollywood-style video content on the planets and the Moon, as well as a new, more informative introduction and how-to guide on the operation of the product. Meade has refined the software to give the user a trouble free and more entertaining exploration of the universe. Speed of this telescope assistant has also improved, where in only a few moments the time, date, and location can be easily entered and stored in the mySKY PLUS' internal clock and memory. This information is automatically retrieved the next time the Meade telescope accessory is used, so you get started even faster.
