Details

The Celestron SkyProdigy 6 Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope is a perfect and compact design for beginner astronomers who want to start taking advantage of the really slow focal ratios and corrective optics of a catadioptric design. Featuring Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings on the mirror, boosting light reflectivity to 95%, around a 10% improvement over traditional aluminum coatings. Even if the astronomer knows they're stars from a light polluted location, taking this telescope to a dark sky and expecting to know the stars can be quite shocking. That is why Celestron implemented the StarSense Technology Alignment Method which with a little inputted information from the observer, the telescope basically aligns itself. After the user inputs the date, time and location, a small camera on the telescope takes three separate snapshots of the night sky and calculates it based upon its computer database. Once aligned, stargazing can begin!

With the flash update system, when new software updates are available, they can be downloaded directly from the internet.
