About this product

Unleash the power of your smartphone to take you on a guided tour of the night sky with no telescope experience required.

Award-winning and Patent-pending StarSense sky recognition technology uses your smartphone to analyze star patterns overhead to calculate it's position in real-time.

The StarSense Explorer app automatically generates a list of objects currently visible. View planets, brighter nebulae and galaxies, star clusters, and double stars from the city. Or take your telescope to darker skies to view faint, deep sky objects.

The manual altazimuth mount with altitude slow motion adjustment with a sliding rod makes it easy to follow the on-screen arrows to your desired target. When the bullseye turns green, it's ready to view in the telescope's eyepiece.

Celestron has reinvented the manual telescope with StarSense Explorer - the first telescope that uses your smartphone to analyze the night sky and calculate its position in real-time. StarSense Explorer is ideal for beginners thanks to the app's user-friendly interface and detailed tutorials.

It's like having your own personal tour guide of the night sky.

StarSense Explorer works with most modern smartphones, including iPhone 6 and up, and most devices running Android 7.1.2 or later manufactured since 2016.

While other astronomy apps may claim that they can help you find objects, they rely exclusively on the phone's gyros and accelerometers, which aren't as accurate as LISA technology. No other app can accurately tell you when your target is visible in the eyepiece.

Even if you live in a light-polluted city location, StarSense Explorer is advanced enough to be able to pick out Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, the Orion Nebula, double stars, and more of the most famous celestial objects.

Very helpful

Very helpful advice on which telescope was suitable to buy . Have not opened it yet because it’s for Christmas but it sounds amazing and although it is for my daughter, it even has me interested!

Fantastic for the time poor and task overwhelmed micro nerd. Real anoraks may dismiss this but it’s a world ****** for the novice. Easy to set up and begin the ‘wow, cool’ moments. Super, super happy with it.
