Product Description

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.

Features

The SkyProdigy 6 Computerized Telescope from Celestron is designed for people without any prior knowledge of astronomy or telescopes. The SkyProdigy will simply "look" up to the sky to self-determine its position and alignment. An internal camera automatically captures 3 images of the sky which it processes to identify the night sky and align the telescope accordingly. It just doesn't get any more straight-forward than this. An eye-opening tour of the best objects to view in the local sky, accessing a database of over 4,000 celestial objects, using SkyProdigy's internal database, is available via the Sky Tour option.

This SkyProdigy is a Schmidt-Cassegrain with a 6" / 152mm aperture and a focal length of 1500mm. Two eyepieces are included - one 25mm as well as a 9.0mm. The mounting platform incorporates a sturdy aluminum tripod with a motorized and computerized altazimuth mount.

StarProdigy Technology

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!

Effortless

One touch turns everyone 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.
