Description

Exploring the wonders of the universe is as simple as 1-2-3: 1. Dock your smartphone 2. Launch the StarSense Explorer smartphone app 3. Observe the moon, planets, stars, and more This innovative integration of smartphone and telescope offers beginner astronomers a fast and (more importantly) easy way to discover what’s up in the night sky and where to view it. This “Lost in Space Algorithm” is more precise than typical astronomy apps and does not require a cell signal to work—so you can use it even when you’re far off the grid. A holder on the mount, aligned with the telescope, ensures that where the phone is pointed is the same as where the scope is, so that when you follow the onscreen directions to find the object of interest and you look through the eyepiece, it will be there. 2x Barlow lens effectively doubles the magnification of any 1.25″ eyepiece installed on it without affecting eye relief, making it more comfortable to view at high power.
