Product informationTwinkle Twinkle Little Star
There are estimated to be at least 70 sextillion stars in the observable universe and with the nearest one after the sun being 39.9 trillion kilometres away it is difficult to discover and appreciate their true celestial beauty without the help of a high quality telescope.
The Celestron SkyProdigy 130 is a truly revolutionary product with ground breaking technology, It combines electronic motors, an intelligent on-board computer, a digital camera and StarSense technology to create an automatic, instant alignment telescope that requires no human input. Simply turn it on, push a button and enjoy the view! It’s that easy.
The SkyProdigy’s automatic alignment process takes only a few minutes, then you will be ready to select from thousands of objects to view. Not 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!
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 the stars in the image. Once a positive match is found, SkyProdigy determines the coordinates of the centre of the captured image. The process is automatically repeated two more times so that the system has three known alignment points that can be used to make an accurate model of the night sky. From 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.
No knowledge of the night sky is required. One touch innovation turns anyone into an instant astronomer!
