Just imagine having the universe at your fingertips with the innovative StarSense Explorer 114mm f/4 Smartphone App-Enabled Tabletop Dobsonian Telescope from Celestron. This high-tech, user-friendly telescope is a game-changer for both beginners and seasoned stargazers. Designed with a large 114mm aperture, this durable telescope offers a wide field of view, enabling you to easily locate and observe celestial objects. The telescope's portability makes it perfect for travel, allowing you to explore the night sky from any location. The StarSense Explorer is the first tabletop Dobsonian telescope that utilizes your smartphone to analyze the night sky and calculate its position in real-time. Forget about complicated star charts and imprecise planetarium apps. With StarSense Explorer, you can navigate the sky with confidence within minutes of setting up the telescope. Simply dock your phone in the unique StarSense dock and launch the StarSense Explorer app. After a quick alignment of your phone to the telescope's optics, the app generates a list of celestial objects currently visible. Select an object and on-screen arrows guide you as you move the telescope. When the object is ready to view, the bullseye turns green. The StarSense Explorer app also provides hundreds of audio descriptions and detailed information about thousands of celestial objects within its robust database. It's like having your own personal tour guide of the night sky.The telescope's high-quality altazimuth base ensures stability, while Teflon bearings provide smooth motion in both altitude and azimuth. The integrated altitude "brake" system allows for the smoothest motion, even with slight imbalances. The optical tube connects to the base via a tube cradle, making it easy to adjust the tube's position for the most ergonomic viewing position. With a 114mm (4.5") parabolic primary mirror, this telescope has the light-gathering ability to bring out detail in celestial objects. Expect sharp, bright views of Jupiter's four Galilean moons, Saturn's rings, the Orion Nebula, and the Pleiades Open Star Cluster. The StarSense Explorer is compatible with most modern smartphones, including iPhone 6 and up, and most devices running Android 7.1.2 or later manufactured since 2016. It uses patented StarSense Sky Recognition Technology and a Lost in Space Algorithm (LISA) to determine exactly where the telescope is pointed in the night sky. Whether you're observing from a city location or a dark sky site, the StarSense Explorer 114mm Tabletop Dobsonian is advanced enough to easily pick out the best and brightest celestial objects. With this telescope and relatively dark skies, hundreds of fascinating objects are well within your reach. Please remember to never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic unless you have the proper solar filter. Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result. Always ensure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is present,...
