Product Description

CELESTRON • SkyProdigy 6" Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope •11076

The Celestron SkyProdigy 6" Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope is a perfect, compact design for astronomers who want to start taking advantage of the really slow focal ratios and corrective optics of a catadioptric design. Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings on the mirror boosts light reflectivity to 95%, around a 10% improvement over traditional aluminum coatings. 

Celestron’s SkyProdigy telescopes use an integrated imaging camera and patented StarSense Technology to automatically align with the night sky and determine where the telescope is currently pointing. The camera automatically captures an image of the sky, which is processed internally to positively identify stars in the image. Once a positive match is found, SkyProdigy determines the coordinates of the center of the captured image. The process is automatically repeated two additional times so that the system has three known alignment points that can be used to make an accurate model of the night sky. With this information, the user can select any celestial object in the hand controller’s database, and SkyProdigy will automatically move itself to the correct position.

SkyProdigy’s automatic alignment process takes only a few minutes, and you will be ready to select from thousands of objects in its database to view.  Not quite sure what to look at?  Select the Sky Tour option; this feature offers a customized list of the best objects in the sky to view for your exact time and location anywhere in the world!
