Guys i could rip Google Sky maps from my Nexus 7 for yous and post the apk if that would be any help.

Thanks for the offer, but google sky map is a free app on android,  probably I phone as well.

I ended up an iPad saddle but won't cross to Apple permanently. Will prob get a top notch Android tablet next time around. One cheap Android tablet I did buy earlier this year was the Cloudnine Neuropad2 on Amazon Marketplace. It operates at a leisurely pace but is great for the sub-100 price. It has a capacitive screen, support for flash and BBC iPlayer, etc. For the odd check of email, Google Drive, Amazon, EBay, Picasa, NAS access, multi-calendar, Evernote, radio, Astro Panel, Google Sky, SkEye, maps, Skype, etc it's moderately effective. I hope to use it for guides, etc for astronomy when don't want the lappie or iPad outside.
