StarSense Explorer Banner

Tour the night sky with your smartphone and a Celestron StarSense Explorer Newtonian reflector telescope—no experience required! The StarSense Explorer app calculates your position in real time and guides you with a list of currently visible objects.

What you can see

See planets, brighter nebulae and galaxies, star clusters, and double stars from the city. See faint, deep sky objects from darker skies.


Dual-axis slow-motion controls on a manual alt-azimuth mount make it easy to follow arrows in-app to your target. Eyepiece viewing is ready when the app's bullseye turns green.
