NexStar Observer List (NSOL)
is a free
PC control program for all models of NexStar, StarSeeker, CPC, LCM, CGE,
CGEM, Advanced Series GoTo (AS-GT) and Ultima 2000 scopes, as well as
Tasco StarGuide scopes. Version 2.6.4 was released on 4 July

This site is devoted to the computerized "GoTo" telescopes from Celestron. Most of the models
feature a computer hand control as standard equipment allowing the scope
to automatically "GoTo" objects in its generous database.
They track objects automatically as well. Basic information about
these scopes is available at the
Celestron web site, but this site is a collection of information not found anywhere
else. Two other great source of information are the many
Celestron-related Yahoo Groups and Cloudy Night's forums, (see Links
above). The folks on these
groups are quite friendly
and don't mind questions from someone trying to make up their mind about a purchase
or just looking for information about their telescope.
