+ Patent-pending StarSense sky recognition technology uses your smartphone to analyze star patterns overhead and calculate its exact pointing position.
+ StarSense Explorer app automatically generates a list of objects currently visible.
+ Manual altazimuth mounts make 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. Step up to StarSense Explorer DX models for dual-axis slow motion controls.
+ Includes 25mm and 10mm eyepieces, StarSense smartphone dock, a red dot fi nderscope (in case you want to use the telescope without your phone), and a sturdy, full-height tripod.

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.
