WorldWide Telescope

Microsoft Research have produced a cool tool called WorldWide Telescope. If astronomy is remotely of interest, take a look at www.worldwidetelescope.org . I’ve hooked my laptop up to the TV and taken my daughter on some of the tours that people have created.

If you have a guided scope, it also supports ASCOM for slewing to the target you are looking at on the laptop – if you are the type to take your laptop into the field I guess.
