The members of the Boy Scouts of America now have an added incentive to learn about the stars and space. In May 2006, Celestron teamed up with Boy Scouts of America to encourage member curiosity about space exploration and astronomy by donating 200 Skyscouts. Armed with their new Celestron stargazing accessory, Boy Scouts attending a summer resident camp or high adventure camp can begin their exploration of the night sky.
The SkyScout is a unique Celestron stargazing accessory. It is a point and shoot device which uses GPS technology to identify the stars in the sky for the user. The 16 oz. hand held educational tool is the winner of several awards, including Personal Electronics Best of Innovations 2006 and Popular Mechanics Editors Choice Awards 2006. Featuring an audio lesson on the history of astronomy, glossary of space terms, and guide to famous comets, the SkyScout is an effective introduction to ongoing learning for budding astronomers.
