    Hi Fred.

    Right. I agree. It's a tool that DEVELOPS that skill of finding stars. And if 
    you can't wait to get the tool on an iPhone or an iPhony, I would add that 
    Ken Gebhart's "Celestaire" sells the currently-available SkyScout at a 
    reasonable price along with a nice selection of accessories: 
      http://celestaire.com/catalog/Starfinding/Sky_Scout/
    
    Kevin Kelly's "Cool Tools" site has a nice review of SkyScout here:
      http://www.kk.org/cooltools/archives/003096.php
    which does a nice job describing how kids take to it.

    PS: If you visit the "Cool Tools" site, try searching on "Centennia" (shameless plug).
