Description

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.

Dock, Launch, Explore
Leave complicated star charts, imprecise planetarium apps, and computerized mounts behind. With StarSense Explorer, locating objects has never been easier, faster, or more accurate. Within minutes of setting up the telescope, you’ll be navigating the sky with confidence. Simply place your phone in the StarSense dock and launch the app. After aligning your phone to the telescope’s optics, StarSense Explorer generates a list of celestial objects currently visible. Make your selection and arrows appear onscreen, guiding you as you to move the telescope. When the object is ready to view, the bullseye turns green.

Smartphone Compatibility
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. For a full list check Celestron.com.

Patent-Pending StarSense Sky Recognition Technology
StarSense Explorer uses patent-pending technology and your smartphone to determine exactly where the telescope is pointed in the night sky. A Lost in Space Algorithm (LISA), like the ones satellites use in orbit to correctly reorient themselves, helps the app match star patterns it detects overhead to its internal database.

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.

High Quality Altazimuth Mount with Slow Motion Control
An ultra-stable altazimuth mount provides a sturdy foundation for the telescope. Slip clutches and geared slow motion controls in both axes help you move the telescope smoothly and zero in your target. As celestial objects appear to drift across the night sky, you’ll be able to follow them with just a turn of the knobs.

Dazzling Views with High Quality Optics
With a large 102mm objective lens, this telescope has enough light gathering ability to bring out impressive detail in celestial objects, even if you live in a light-polluted locations. You can expect sharp, bright views of Jupiter’s four Galilean moons, its cloud bands and Great Red Spot, the rings of Saturn, the Orion Nebula, and much more. Celestron’s XLT optical coatings improve light transmission, enhancing the views even more.
If you can take the telescope to an even darker locations, more objects will become visible. The entire telescope kit weighs just 14.2 pounds, so it’s perfectly portable and easy to bring on your next camping trip.

Includes the Perfect Power Solution for Running the StarSense Explorer app
Explore the Solar System with your phone or tablet without draining your battery. With hours of continuous use, planetarium apps like StarSense Explorer can drain your battery. This compact power bank delivers a full charge to mobile devices with its 5000 mAh capacity, so you can use your smartphone confidently to scan the skies. It also includes a red flashlight to help you see in the dark while preserving your night vision.
