    No telescope or astronomy knowledge required. The Celestron StarSense Explorer DX 130AZ Newtonian Telescope features revolutionary StarSense Explorer technology which utilises your smartphone's GPS and camera technology to determine celestial positions relative to you. It's super simple - set up your telescope, load the StarSense Explorer app, select the object you want to find, follow the arrows using your telescope and center it in the viewfinder!

    The new Celestron StarSense Explorer App is available for download from Google Play Store or Apple Store and compatible with most smartphone devices (Android 7.1.2 and higher, and iPhone 6 and newer).

This special design operates similar to facial recognition technology, instead looking for similiarities and patterns in star clusters or 'star mapping'. In a nut shell, it's brilliant, easy to use and ahead of its time!
