mySky is a personal astronomy tool made by Meade Instruments. When pointed at an area of sky, it can identify objects based on its built-in database of 30000 objects. It can also guide the user to a particular object from its database. It has an LCD display, incorporates GPS technology and can be linked to a compatible Meade computer-controllable telescope. Note, however, that mySky is not a telescope or observing instrument.

The current model of this device no longer incorporates the GPS functionality. There were lots of complaints about that feature not working. Now, lattitude and longitude is enterend manually or selected from a list of cities.
