Celestron Sky Prodigy 6 Computerized Telescope

The Celestron SkyProdigy 6 is a revolutionary self-aligning go to telescope that allows beginners to see planets and other objects on their first night out.

The Celestron SkyProdigy 6-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope is a truly revolutionary product with ground breaking technology, and it has enough aperture to introduce you to deep space objects. It 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. If you are a complete beginner with no knowledge of the night sky, but one who wants to see more than just the moon and the rings of Saturn, this could be the ideal first telescope for you. Simply turn it on, push a button and enjoy the view! It’s that easy.

Celestron SkyProdigy 6 SCT Computerized Telescope

The SkyProdigy’s automatic alignment process takes only a few minutes, and you will be ready to select from thousands of objects in its database to view. Not quite sure what to look at? Select the Sky Tour option; this feature offers a customized list of the best objects in the sky to view for your exact time and location anywhere in the world!

No knowledge of the night sky is required. One touch innovation turns anyone into an instant astronomer!

Celestron’s SkyProdigy telescopes 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. With this information, the user can select any celestial object in the hand controller’s database, and SkyProdigy will automatically move itself to the correct position.
