  1. Is there a telescope that if you put in the alt and az goes to that spot. Example. ( your going around the sky you see something, what to know what your looking at. Your phone ap gives you a good idea what your seeing, but would like to put the alt and az to make sure what I'm seeing.
  2. Thanks everyone. I have a 8" dobsonian and a 4" go to. Maybe the go to push-to dobsonian is the answer thanks . Last night I was just dancing around the sky. with the 8" I'd see something, wonder what I was looking at. go to my I phone ap (Skeye) hold the phone up try and identify what I was seeing. I would get some idea what I was seeing I'd see the alt and az coordinates and try and figure is that the right one. Then thinking if I had a scope that I'd see the alt/az coordinates on the phone and put them in and boom it would go right there that would be nice.
