How to identify and locate the night sky objects in 3 minutes,
even you don't have telescope experience!

You love stargazing, the large gaseous planets, especially the ringed Saturn!  Looking at magazine or internet gallery doesn't impress you!

If you have young children, you would get asked often where the planets or Orion's belt are positioned and how to gaze upon them with telescope.  You would hardly respond to them with the right answers because you don't have the solution!

You intimidate to take action because you find it no way to target the desired object with a telescope.  Perhaps you come across computerized telescopes which are assumed as an automatic unit but ... usually that is a wrong perception:

  • Specific star-alignment methods are required to undergo before finding your desired target. Never assume it an automated machine when the power is switched on.
  • It requires external electric power to operate. Low current supply or incompatible power supply results a haul of operation.
  • No manual maneuvering is allowed for beginner's models.
  • Computerized models are usually not small in dimensions.
  • Additional care and upkeep are necessary due to the built-in electronic components.
  • Software updating is essential.
