Celestron SkyProdigy Mount Only


The SkyProdigy mount's automatic alignment procedure requires only a few minutes before you're ready to choose from thousands of potential viewing objects. If you're not sure what to look at first, let the Sky Tour option be your guide. Sky Tour provides a custom-made list of the most prominent objects in the sky to view depending on your exact time and location anywhere in the world!

The SkyProdigy Mak-Cass Telescope incorporates an imaging camera and patented StarSense technology for automatic alignment with the night sky as well as resolving where the telescope is pointing at that exact moment. The camera will instinctively capture an image of the sky. This image will then be internally processed to confirm the identify of the stars in the image. Once a positive match is located, SkyProdigy will resolve the coordinates of the center of the captured image. This process is automatically repeated twice to give the system three known alignment points that can be employed to create an authentic model of the heavens. Using this information, the user can choose from any celestial object in the hand controller database and SkyProdigy will instantly move itself into the proper position.
