Celestron SkyProdigy 90 Mak-Cass Telescope
The smartest telescope in the Universe!
An extraordinary product with revolutionary technology, the SkyProdigy™ is the culmination of years and years of telescope innovations. It brings together an intelligent internal computer, electric motors, digial camera, and StarSense™ technology to build a fully automated telescope that aligns with total immediacy while requiring zero input from the user. All you have to do is turn it on, push a button, and enjoy the view! Nothing could be easier!
The SkyProdigy'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!
Requires absolutely no knowledge of the night sky. Become an instant astronomer with only one touch!
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.
Please note the images captured by the SkyProdigy's internal camera are for the sole purpose of self-aligning the SkyProdigy telescope and cannot be viewed or saved by the user.
