Celestron StarSense Explorer LT 114AZ Telescope

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.

  • Large 4.5 inch aperture and a reflector optical tube which has enough light-gathering ability to view all the best celestial objects.
  • StarSense Explorer app automatically generates a list of objects currently visible
  • Glass mirrors coated with aluminium and SiO₂ for improved brightness
