I received this e-mail from Meade last night. I downloaded the program
and it looks very interesting, but with my limited knowledge of the
night sky I figured I would let the experts review it.  I hope all is
well with your move to Arizona and that you enjoy your "retirement".

It will take me another 10 years to get to that point but already found
me a piece of property in the north Georgia mountains where the sky is
dark and the pace is slower...

Clear Skies,

explore the universe.

Wishing you clear and steady skies,

Scott W. Roberts
Mike here: Thanks. Move still pending; have to sell home in California first.
I first saw the Google announcement mentioned on some Mac web sites that I monitor. I've been using Google Earth for some time and this new feature makes a nice add-on.
