With the Celestron StarSense Explorer LT 80AZ Smartphone App-Enabled Refractor Telescope locating objects has never been easier, faster, or more accurate. Within minutes of setting up the telescope, you can be navigating the sky with confidence. Place your phone in the unique StarSense dock and launch the StarSense Explorer app. After aligning your phone to the telescope's optics (a quick, 2-minute procedure), the 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.

The 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.

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.

StarSense Explorer LT has a simple altazimuth mount which makes it easy to move the telescope to find your target. A slow-motion altitude adjustment knob helps you fine tune the telescope's pointing position and follow targets as they appear to drift across the night sky. It's all anchored by an adjustable, full-height tripod.

You can expect sharp, bright views through this 80mm refractor. Fully coated glass optics provide increased light transmission, enhancing details in celestial objects. The telescope also includes a 90-degree erect image diagonal, so you can use it during the day to view birds, wildlife, landscapes, and more.

Even if you live in a light polluted city location, StarSense Explorer is advanced enough to be able to pick out Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, the Orion Nebula, double stars, and a few more of the most famous celestial objects.

But if you can take the telescope to an even slightly darker location, more objects will become visible. The entire telescope kit weighs just 9.2 pounds, so it is perfectly portable and easy to bring on your next camping trip or to a remote observing site.

Great for a novice
Thursday, 31 December 2020  | 

This telescope was simple to set up and as a total novice, the Starsense app really helped when trying to locate planets and stars. Easily transportable and lightweight. We are still learning but so far we have had a great experience using this telescope.
