$1,633.00

The SkyProdigy 90mm Maksutov Telescope from Celestron is designed for people without any prior knowledge of astronomy or telescopes. In less than three minutes after being turned on, the SkyProdigy will simply “look” up to the sky to self-determine its position and alignment. It just doesn’t get any more straight-forward than this. An eye-opening tour of over 4,000 celestial objects, using SkyProdigy’s internal database, is almost instantly available.

The SkyProdigy system combines electronic motors, an intelligent on-board computer, a digital camera and Celestron’s StarSense technology. The telescope user does not need to do any positioning or aligning. This is an automatic, instant-alignment telescope. Turn it on, push the button and enjoy the galactic gems! There is a Sky Tour option that offers a customized list of the most interesting objects in the sky to view for your location/time anywhere in the world. No knowledge of the night sky is required. One touch turns everyone into an instant astronomer.

This SkyProdigy is a Maksutov-Cassegrain with a 90mm aperture and a focal length of 1250mm. Two eyepieces are included – one 25mm as well as a 9.0mm. The mounting platform incorporates a sturdy aluminum tripod with a motorized and computerized altazimuth mount. The SkyX First Light Edition astronomy software is included.
