Style:6" Schmidt Cassegrain THE SMARTEST TELESCOPE IN THE UNIVERSE! A truly
revolutionary product with ground breaking technology, SkyProdigy is the
product of a culmination of decades of telescope advancements. 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. Simply turn it on, push a button and enjoy
the view! It’s that easy. 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. SkyProdigy’s internal
camera does not have an external output allowing users to view or save
captured images. The captured images are used internally solely for the
purpose of self-aligning the SkyProdigy telescope.
