    "An ingenious tinkerer over at Cloudy Nights Telescope Reviews decided that the standard remote for his Orion Atlas EQG telescope was too clunky. So he decided to modify the telescope to be controlled by his Wii Remote. Now with the simple flick of the wrist or finger he can control the direction and Right Ascension/Declination of his telescope. This will definitely give new meaning to Mario Galaxy."
