Description

The Celestron StarSense Explorer DX6 Telescope offers award-winning and patent-pending StarSense sky recognition technology which uses your smartphone to analyse star patterns overhead and calculate its position in real time. This telescope offers dazzling views with high quality optics and a high quality altazimuth mount with slow motion control. Unleash the power of your smartphone to take you on a guided tour of the night sky - no telescope experience required.

Solar Warning:
Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
