GPS Gadget of the Week: mySKY Personal Planetarium

Stargazing has never been easier than with the mySKY Personal Planetarium, by Meade. As reported by the High Tech Lounge, this week's GPS Gadget of the Week combines a telescope with GPS functionality to make stargazing easier. GPS auto alignment and a database with more than 30.000 sky targets, allows the user to point the device at the heavens and instantly identify planets, stars and constellations.

For the purist, the mySKY can be used as an old fashioned telescope, letting the user search the skies themselves. The device, which also boasts multimedia capabilities such as text, audio and video presentations, will run about $400 when it becomes available in May.
