If you're going to spend only$180 on a telescope, put every dollar into bigger optics and upgraded eyepiece, preferably used (Astromart.com). Not a couple motors and microprocessor. Otherwise you end up with a little
toy that will be amusing for a couple hours.

There's at least one phone app that will help you guide the scope to the Target. SkEye. You aim the scope at a bright star, sync the phone, and when you move the scope the Sky map on the phone moves too. (A homemade mount or judicious duct tape to attach phone to scope.)
