Celestron NexStar+ Telescope Hand Control allows you to take control of your computerized telescope, effortlessly aligning with, identifying, and observing stars, planets, and galaxies with a few well-placed button presses. These convenient Celestron telescope accessories utilize a red backlit LCD display window to clearly display information without ruining your night vision. With this telescope accessory, you can manually slew your telescope with the directional keys, or point to one of the thousands of stars, planets, and deep sky objects in the remote's catalog. The Celestron Nex-Star Plus Computerized Telescope Remote can also identify nearby objects by cross-referencing your telescope's position with the remote's database. Celestron has also equipped the telescope remote with the Sky Tour functionality, which will seek out the best and brightest objects in the night sky and automatically slew your telescope to them, a great way to get acquainted with our cosmic neighborhood. You can also control the speed of your telescope's motor with the remote, and its RS-232 jack allows it to interface with a computer for even more precise slewing capabilities. Control your telescope single-handed and learn a little more about the universe in the process with the Celestron NexStar+ Telescope Hand Control Remote.
