If the MySky can accept the same Tours as the Autostar telescopes,
then you may be able to download the Messier Marathon Tour from
here:

But i have no idea at all if they're compatible.

have fun

No it is not compatible yet.    :)

But I received an answer from Meade:

Not based on date or time of evening. We list them in order by number or by browsing.

and

Great idea though. I'll let the product manager know about your idea.

As it happens, Meade's Autostar Tour for the Messier Marathon
lists them in ascending RA order... so from west (catch what's about to -set-)
to east and onward through the night.

They start with M74, M77, M33, M31...
and end with M2, M72, M73 and finally M30

The Autostar will start by presenting the ones that are currently visible,
but it will do them as they're ordered in the Tour.

have fun
