Astronomy

I've been looking at palm astronomy applications. The reason? Because I bought a telescope so that I could spend some time with my children looking at the stars. Of course, it is the wrong time of year for that, but never mind. When the nights get longer we'll make a start.

There are loads of astronomy applications available, from very complex stuff for real professionals, to simple phases of the moon type apps. The prices vary immensely too. What I really need is something simple and workable so that I can see what I'm looking at and tell my children. Something for the beginner, and cheap too (of course).

I'll let you know when I find it.
