The Astro Fi 102 is a computerized alt-azimuth Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope perfect for celestial (and terrestrial) viewing on the go. The Astro Fi offers dazzling views of Moon craters, Saturn's rings, Jupiter's Great Red Spot, the Orion Nebula, the Hercules Globular Cluster and so much more at night! In addition, the star diagonal provides right side up viewing for using as a spotting scope during the day.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze and will have you observing in no time. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. Its portable weight of 7kg makes the telescope perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting it wherever life’s adventures take you.

For double the fun, Astro Fi’s lens cap does double duty as a smartphone adapter too! Become an instant astrophotographer by easily capturing images and videos of all your starry discoveries.


Computerized Alt-Azimuth telescope:

Take in the sky with the computerized alt-azimuth telescope. This straightforward design allows the telescope to move in all the directions you need it to.

Integrated WiFi & Celestron’s SkyPortal App:

Control your telescope using your smart device with ease! The Astro Fi series emits its own wireless connection to Celestron’s SkyPortal app to provide easy remote observing. Scan the sky for an object you want to view, tap the object in SkyPortal and watch your Astro Fi telescope automatically slews to the object.

While observing, SkyPortal provides detailed and accurate information on the object; it’s never been more fun to explore the universe!

SkyAlign Technology:

Getting ready to observe is quick and painless thanks to Celestron’s award-winning SkyAlign technology. Center any three bright objects in the eyepiece, and your telescope calculates its position. You can even generate a Sky Tour of all the best celestial objects to view based on your exact time and location.

Accessories Included:

The Astro Fi 102 comes with:

  • Two eyepieces (25mm and 10 mm)
  • Star Diagonal
  • Integrated smartphone adapter
  • Red dot finderscope.

The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The red dot finderscope will help you quickly center an object in your eyepiece for easier observing. The lens cap doubles as a smartphone adapter, so you can instantly become an astrophotographer! You will be able to capture great images of the Moon, planets, and terrestrial targets like birds and wildlife.

Note: The smartphone adapter allows any smartphone to a telescope eyepice of 45mm outside diameter or smaller. This smartphone adapter installs easily over the top of an eyepiece while bungee cords securely hold your phone in position so you can snap images or video.  While most phones can be used with the case on, some phone cases which are very large/bulky (such as folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.
