    Celestron StarSense Explorer DX 6" AZ Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope

    The Celestron StarSense Explorer DX features an award-winning and patent-pending StarSense sky recognition technology that uses your smartphone to analyze star patterns overhead and locate its spot in real-time. The technology can point out the objects in the night sky accurately by using A Lost in Space Algorithm (LISA).

    Even in light polluted places, StarSense Explorer is advanced enough to pick out stars, and a few more of the most famous celestial objects. More objects will become visible if the telescope is in a darker location. With this 6" Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube, you would be able to gather enough light to bring out impressive detail in celestial objects while remaining compact and lightweight. You can expect to see 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 the beautiful Pleaides Open Star Cluster.
