Celestron SkyProdigy 6 Computerized Telescope w/ Mount & Remote Product Info

Celestron SkyProdigy 6 Computerized Telescope 11076 will make you feel like an astronomy prodigy, with its simple one-touch alignment system and high definition optics. These revolutionary Celestron telescopes make use of patented StarSense technology to automatically align the telescope to the night sky with unerring accuracy. The SkyProdigy telescope has an integrated imaging camera (used only for aligning the telescope, not saving image data) that captures a broad image of the sky, identifies local stars, and triangulates your telescope's position based on those stars. This process requires no effort on your part; simply boot up the telescope, push the alignment button, and let the Celestron Sky Prodigy 6 StarSense Alignment Telescope do its work. This telescope has a light gathering power that is nearly three times that of the Celestron SkyProdigy 90, thanks to fully multi-coated optics, resulting in exceedingly bright images. These Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes have a wide 152mm aperture, coupled with a long 1500mm focal length for a total useful magnification range from 359x to 22x. You can educate yourself about the night sky with the Celestron Sky-Prodigy 6 Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Alt-AZ Telescope and its included SkyX First Light Edition computer software.

The Celestron SkyProdigy 6 Altazimuth Mount Telescope is controlled with a computerized altazimuth mount that can automatically locate any one of the 4,000 items in its database once you align the telescope. The telescope attaches to the Alt-Az mount via a quick release fork arm that requires no tools to install on the mount, making set up easy and fast. Celestron has packaged the Celestron Sky-Prodigy 6 Automatic Alignment 359x Telescope with a convenient hand control unit, which gives you precise control over almost every aspect of the telescope's orientation. These powerful telescopes in the Celestron SkyProdigy series can either run on external power, or they can run for up to 30 hours on a single battery pack, making them ideal for field use as well as observations near the lab or the home. A prodigy of telescope engineering with one-touch alignment capabilities, the Celestron Sky Prodigy 6 Motorized Quick Release Telescope will have you navigating the night sky like a seasoned astronomer with one button press.
