On the telescope is a StarPointer Red Dot viewfinder, with which you can easily find celestial objects.The telescope is very suitable for deep-sky observations.

GoTo technology

The telescope and mount are equipped with a complete GoTo system. With this very handy system, the telescope can automatically look up celestial objects for you.

You can control the telescope with a tablet or smartphone via the free downloadable Celestron SkyPortal app. To be able to control your telescope via your phone or tablet, you only need a Wi-Fi connection.
