Stellarium: got it on my notebook now, quite good.. Has starlore associated with the constellations: Western, Chinese, Egyptian, Inuit, Korean, Lakota, Maori, Navajo, Norse, Polynesian, Sami (indigenous scandinavians in other words) Tupi-Guarani. So u get an idea of how other people in the past grouped stars together. *

stellarium is good, also skymap for android rocks, hold up phone and bam the skys full of interesting subjects. deepsky stacker and registax are two awesome sets of software for stacking video/images to gain hi res photographs. both are my main tools of the astro trade. i own a cheap entry DSLR a couple converted point an shoot cameras ( nebula in infra red) and two scopes a baby dobson 3 inch reflecting, and a larger 4.5 inch reflecting newtonian. i also hacked a HD microsoft webcam for video capture using Sharpcap ( controls webcams and settings) *

Sky watcher heritage 76 and 130.
aimed at the younger and newcomer these two scopes are ideal. very simple to use wooden base and s y telescope tube. the 76 will give you very good moon images and globular clusters. the 130mm will give you saturn and the more distant objects like galaxy's nebulas and fantastic planetary views. raning from 40 - 135 they are low range priced scopes for the younger and new astronomers out there. *
