SkyTour for a Hands-Free Experience at the Eyepiece 

The SkyTour generates a plan that takes you from object to object with a minimum of interaction, allowing you to stay at the eyepiece and to stay dark adapted. At each stop, a voice reads information about the object and suggests the ideal eyepiece to use. The tour is organized unlike any other, always ensuring the best possible view. 

The Real Time tool is included with the Professional Edition and the Standard Edition plus Real Time Observing package.
