MySky almost

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WV Written on January 30, 2009
This is a neat tool for the starting or for the old hand, it has lots of great information and is pretty easy to use with a couple of exception:

First, while the unit does have GPS, it only allows you to input a location from its internal lists. In my case the nearest town on the list is more than 30 miles away, this means that when I point my MySky at an object it is generally several degrees off the target (because it believes I am actually 30 miles from my actual location). The unit still provides great information.

My biggest complaint was with the software update. When the unit arrived, its software version did not allow for GPS set up. So, as per the instructions in the book I updated the MySky memory card. The upgrade brought the GPS setup option onto the screen, but locked up the functions so that no location could be entered from any source. I to download the version of autostar from meade's web site to get the proper firmware version.


Pros: Huge library of information, easy to learn
Cons: too few locations, can't input actual GPS info...
Would recommend: Yes

MySky Plus

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 19, 2009
A nice product, with the major problem that Meade have not implemented time zones properly for New Zealand, and possibly for other Southern hemisphere countries. An unfortunate consequence of the deletion of the GPS function in the 'plus' version
Pros: Very clever technology
Cons: Not set up for Southern hemosphere...
Would recommend: Yes

Fantastic!

I read many reviews on the MySky and quite a few state problems with setup and that it breaks easily. My unit worked flawlessly right out of the box. Fast and easy setup. Put in the batteries, turn it on, stand it on a flat surface and within seconds it's aligned and ready to use. What could possibly be easier. As far as breakage is concerned, treat it as the delicate instrument that it is and you won't have problems.
Pros: Everything
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes
