The Celestron StarSense Explorer LT 70mm AZ Refractor Telescope features innovative technology that makes star gazing easier than ever before. By utilising your Smartphone’s GPS and camera technology, the telescope can efficiently determine celestial positions relative to your location.

Quick and Easy Set-Up

The quick and easy set-up means you never have to miss a moment in the sky. All you have to do is download the StarSense app, set your telescope up, select the object you want to find, follow the directional arrows using your telescope then centre it in the viewfinder.

A Hassle-Free Viewing Experience

This is a product that takes the hassle out of star-searching, especially for beginners and first-time telescope users. It cuts out the long process of manually learning the patterns of the planets and stars. The technology operates in a similar manner to facial recognition, but instead of looking for faces, it searches for star clusters. Through this lens, you can view the Moon, stars and even some galaxies.

Compatible with most Smartphones

The telescope is compatible with most Smartphone devices (Android 7.1.2 or higher and iPhone 6 or higher), while the Celestron StarSense Explorer App is available to download from the Google Play Store or Apple Store.
