      “Go to” computerised technology

The Celestron Astro Fi 5 Schmidt-Cassegrain Catadioptic Telescope features “Go to” technology that can automatically show you any location from its 120,0000-object database. You won't need any prior knowledge of where objects are based. The telescope will also advise you which objects are currently visible from your location.

      Built-in WiFi

      Control the telescope using your smartphone with the Celestron SkyPortal app for iOS and Android. Just pair the phone with the telecsope's built-in WiFi, and point your phone up at the sky, and select your object. The telescope will take you there.

      Tool-free setup

      Setting up the telescope is easy. It requires no tools, which means you can get straight to stargazing. If you fancy, you can hook up your Canon or Nikon SLR camera to it for breath-taking astronomy photos.
