    Is it tied to the telescope? If not, how about the excellent (and free/open source!) Stellarium. It can be configured to start at your location and used to control Planetariums. Yes, they'd have to learn it - but it's intuitive.

    Have a look at www.PopAstro.com very good friendly site, and within the forum there is a list of commonly used free software. Direct Link
