Celestron

 

With the Celestron StarSense Explorer DX 130AZ Smartphone App-Enabled Newtonian Reflector 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.

An ultra-stable altazimuth mount provides a sturdy foundation for StarSense Explorer DX. Slip clutches and geared slow motion controls in both axes help you move the telescope smoothly and zero in your target. As celestial objects appear to drift across the night sky, you’ll be able to follow them with just a turn of the knobs. It’s all anchored by an adjustable, full-height tripod.

With a large 130mm objective lens, this telescope has enough light gathering ability to bring out detail in celestial objects. You can expect sharp, bright views of Jupiter's four Galilean moons, its cloud bands and Great Red Spot, the rings of Saturn, the trapezium in the Orion Nebula, and beautiful Pleaides Open Star Cluster. Celestron's XLT optical coatings improve light transmission, enhancing the views even more. 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. With this 4" Refractor and relatively dark skies, the Andromeda Galaxy, Hercules Open Star Cluster, and so many more are easily within your reach.

The entire telescope kit weighs just 18 pounds, so it's perfectly portable and easy to bring on your next camping trip or to a remote observing site.

Celestron Starsense 130

Amazing scope, works really well so simple and easy to use, great with the kids too. Iím an amateur user so this scope was ideal for helping me learn and navigate but isnít reliant on heavy battery usage Or complex set up like a goto, it can also be used manually. Itís so quick to set up and get using and if you move it or if the kids knock it it re-scans and youíre off again. Because of how it works the kids can use it too however you might need a stool so they can teach the eyepiece! I brought some additional lenses and a Barlow lens and thatís increased the viewing too. Highly recommended and great service and value from PicStop. Ordered on a Friday arrived on the Tuesday. All in all highly recommended all round.

Not had the chance to put the scope through its paces due to cloud cover, but the small use we have had went well in as much as the StarSence app worked as they said it would.
