... it must be catching! Is there any cure Doc? :-)
I have been using Stellarium, and open-source (i.e. completley free) planetarium program in the last few days. It is a great way to get an idea whats up in the sky and how the multitude of stars and constellations relate to each other etc...
It's available for Windows, Mac, and Linux (if you are a strange geek like me...).
You can find it here: http://www.stellarium.org/
Happy star hunting!
Curse you, Skywatcher... 'tis a merciless, insidious, plague you have inflicted upon us all!
