This site used to be just for a device I invented called 'AstroSpotter'.

The original AstroSpotter was completely manual and is found on the MyTools section of this site.

The new device, pictured to the right, is a bluetooth cell phone assisted device with an App.  

See details for the modern cell phone assisted version on my tech site where the AstroSpotter WebPage lives.
