The SkyProdigy 130mm Reflector Telescope from Celestron is designed for people without any prior knowledge of astronomy or telescopes. In less than three minutes after being turned on, the SkyProdigy will simply "look" up to the sky to self-determine it's position and alignment. It just doesn't get any more straight-forward than this. An eye-opening tour of over 4,000 celestial objects, using SkyProdigy's internal database, is almost instantly available.
The SkyProdigy system combines electronic motors, an intelligent on-board computer, a digital camera and Celestron's StarSense technology. The telescope user does not need to do any positioning or aligning. This is an automatic, instant-alignment telescope. Turn it on, push the button and enjoy the galactic gems! There is a Sky Tour option that offers a customized list of the most interesting objects in the sky to view for your location/time anywhere in the world. No knowledge of the night sky is required. One touch turns everyone into an instant astronomer.
