The programs will only show you what you are looking at on a star map. To actually see the item you'll still need to look through the scope. To display the actual image from the telescope on your screen, you will need an eyepiece with a camera built in to the unit. We only carry one such eyepiece at the moment. The Meade electronic eyepiece is available here, http://www.opticsplanet.com/me-electronic-eyepiece.html. Unfortunately it is a low resolution, .08MP, camera. On a regular TV screen the image will be fine, but on a computer screen it will appear quite blotchy.
I hope this information has been helpful. Good Luck.
