Product Details

  • The Celestron StarSense Explorer DX 130AZ Smartphone Telescope allows you to tour the night sky with your smartphone—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.

    Ease-of-use

    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.

    Decent beginner telescope

    I appreciate the telescope quality , good entry level Item. I would definitely recommend spending the additional money spent purchasing the Optional Celestron 5 lens and filter Kit. Best bang for your buck

    Celestron StarSense Explorer DX 130AZ Smartphone Telescope

    Thus far, our experience has been disappointing. The target e.g. the red dot, no longer works. One night when the moon was visible, the Telescope could not be position upward enough to view the moon. I am a first time user, and I am on a steep learning curve. Richard C

    StarSense Explorer

    Works great as advertised. Wish you sold it by itself to add to a Dob. Eddie
