For anyone that has previously struggled with the complexity of setting up and operating a telescope, the StarSense Explorer is simply revolutionary. Even if you have never used a telescope before, the latest offering from industry leader Celestron makes navigating the skies easy and fun.
Celestron has been developing telescopes, binoculars and other optical consumer goods since 1960 and has put decades of experience and knowledge into creating a product that is both affordable and accessible- without sacrificing the outstanding stargazing experience Celestron is famous for. The StarSense Explorer features an ingenious smartphone dock that allows users to use their existing Android or iOS phones to expertly navigate the skies above in minutes.
Celestron has also developed a comprehensive app (included with each StarSense Explorer telescope) that works with the phone’s camera to recognize star patterns and locate thousands of objects including stars, planets and galaxies. Once users launch the app, they simply select the object they would like to locate. The app then provides an on-screen guidance system that is easy to follow, even for beginners. Simply follow the onscreen arrows to the desired object, when the crosshair turns green the object is centered and ready to observe.
With the new StarSense Explorer telescope, navigating the skies is now as simple as dock, launch and observe. Experience Celestron’s StarSense Explorer at Table D-14/16.
