Celestron SkyProdigy 102 Computerized Telescope 22090 is the self-proclaimed "smartest telescope in the universe", and you might start to agree as soon as you boot it up. This intelligent Celestron telescope will automatically align itself to three different stars in the night sky using the patented StarSense technology, which requires no effort on your part; simply boot up the telescope, press the alignment button, and wait for approximately three minutes, and you'll be ready to direct the telescope to any object within range. With a long 660mm focal length and two different eyepieces - 25mm and 9mm - these refractor telescopes are capable of achieving a maximum 241x useful magnification, plenty for looking at our solar system and several larger formations beyond. The Celestron Sky Prodigy 102 StarSense Auto Aligning Telescope is equipped with a StarPointer finderscope, which has a wider field of view to help you identify potential subjects with the telescope. Fully multi-coated lenses improve the light transmission rate of the SkyProdigy telescope to twice that of the SkyProdigy 70, creating extremely bright images of even distant objects. What's more, the Celestron Sky-Prodigy 102 Refractor Telescope can operate for up to 30 hours on eight D-cell batteries or indefinitely with an external power supply.
Powering the movement of the Celestron SkyProdigy 102 AltAzimuth Telescope is a computerized Altazimuth mount, attached to the telescope with a quick release fork arm mount for fast installation. A flash-upgradeable hand remote, complete with a 4,000 object database of navigable celestial bodies, controls every aspect of the mount. Celestron has also included the SkyX First Light Edition astronomy software to expand their knowledge about the universe. In addition, you can activate the Sky Tour feature of the Celestron SkyProdigy, which will automatically point your telescope to some of the best objects in the night sky for viewing. The Celestron SkyProdigy 102 Auto Alignment Telescope comes with a sturdy stainless steel tripod for secure mounting, complete with a deluxe accessory tray for all your filters, lenses, and other telescope accessories. The motorized mount has nine different slew speeds ranging from one degree per second to 32x, giving you even more precise control over the telescope. For an automatically-aligning telescope that can take you on a guided tour of the universe from your backyard, choose the Celestron Sky Prodigy 102mm Alt-Az Refractor Telescope.
