The SkyProdigy 6 Computerized Telescope from Celestron is designed for people without any prior knowledge of astronomy or telescopes. The SkyProdigy will simply "look" up to the sky to self-determine its position and alignment. An internal camera automatically captures 3 images of the sky which it processes to identify the night sky and align the telescope accordingly. It just doesn't get any more straight-forward than this. An eye-opening tour of the best objects to view in the local sky, accessing a database of over 4,000 celestial objects, using SkyProdigy's internal database, is available via the Sky Tour option.

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.

This SkyProdigy is a Schmidt-Cassegrain with a 6" / 152mm aperture and a focal length of 1500mm. Two eyepieces are included - one 25mm as well as a 9.0mm. The mounting platform incorporates a sturdy aluminum tripod with a motorized and computerized altazimuth mount. The SkyX First Light Edition astronomy software is included.
