About the Celestron 6SCT Schmidt-Cassegrain

The Celestron SkyProdigy 6SCT Computerized 152mm Schmidt-Cassegrain Refractor Telescope combines electronic motors, an intelligent on-board computer, a digital camera and StarSense technology to create an automatic, instant alignment telescope that requires no input from the user. Simply turn it on, push a button and enjoy the view! It's that easy. Its automatic alignment process takes only a few minutes and you will be ready to select from thousands of objects in its database to view.

The Celestron's SkyProdigy 6SCT Schmidt-Cassegrain Refractor Telescope use an integrated imaging camera and patented StarSense Technology to automatically align with the night sky and determine where the telescope is currently pointing.

The camera automatically captures an image of the sky, which is processed internally to positively identify stars in the image. Once a positive match is found, SkyProdigy determines the coordinates of the center of the captured image. The process is automatically repeated two additional times so that the system has three known alignment points that can be used to make an accurate model of the night sky. The user can select any celestial object in the hand controller's database and SkyProdigy will automatically move itself to the correct position.
