Details

If there was a telescope that could align itself with no input from the user, the Celestron SkyProdigy 130 Newtonian Reflector Computerized Telescope is one of them! With the StarSense technology, a small camera attached to the optical tube with takes shots of a certain part of the sky and matches it against its database to determine what coordinates of the night sky that was. It can then align itself once it figures this out. Absolutely no user involvement required. This is one of the easy yet most advanced telescopes to use! No tools are necessary for setting it up. Once the user has mounted the optical tube to the fork mount, extend the stainless steel tripods align the telescope and observing can begin! When properly aligned, the NexStar hand controller has a 4,000 object database of celestial objects to slew to, including the planets as well as thousand of Messier, NGC and IC deep sky objects. Included with the SkyProdigy series, the SkyX First Light Astronomy Software which has a 10,000 object database with printable sky maps and celestial images.
