Stellarium - Fantastic open-source astronomy software

Why pay hundreds for a telescope you'll use 3 times in your life and brave summer heat and winter cold in your backyard and still not see anything you can identify, when you can see it all on your computer screen for nothing? From the web site:

"Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope."
