<p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Celestron has reinvented the manual telescope with StarSense Explorer&mdash;the first telescope that uses your smartphone to analyze the night sky and calculate its position in real time. StarSense Explorer is ideal for beginners thanks to the app&rsquo;s user-friendly interface and detailed tutorials. It&rsquo;s like having your own personal tour guide of the night sky.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Dock, Launch, Explore</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Leave complicated star charts, imprecise planetarium apps, and computerized mounts behind. With StarSense Explorer, locating objects has never been easier, faster, or more accurate. Within minutes of setting up the telescope, you&rsquo;ll be navigating the sky with confidence. Simply place your phone in the unique StarSense dock and launch the StarSense Explorer app. After aligning your phone to the telescope&rsquo;s optics (a quick, 2-minute procedure), StarSense Explorer generates a list of celestial objects currently visible. Make your selection and arrows appear onscreen, guiding you as you to move the telescope. When the object is ready to view, the bullseye turns green.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Smartphone Compatibility</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">StarSense Explorer works with most modern smartphones, including iPhone 6 and up and most devices running Android 7.1.2 or later manufactured since 2016.&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;</p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Patent-Pending StarSense Sky Recognition Technology</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">StarSense Explorer uses patent-pending technology and your smartphone to determine exactly where the telescope is pointed in the night sky. A Lost in Space Algorithm (LISA), like the ones satellites use in orbit to correctly reorient themselves, helps the app match star patterns it detects overhead to its internal database.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">While other astronomy apps may claim that they can help you find objects, they rely exclusively on the phone&rsquo;s gyros and accelerometers, which aren&rsquo;t as accurate as LISA technology. No other app can accurately tell you when your target is visible in the eyepiece.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">High Quality Altazimuth Mount with Slow Motion Control</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">An ultra-stable altazimuth mount provides a sturdy foundation for StarSense Explorer DX. Slip clutches and geared slow motion controls in both axes help you move the telescope smoothly and zero in your target. As celestial objects appear to drift across the night sky, you&rsquo;ll be able to follow them with just a turn of the&nbsp;knobs. It&rsquo;s all anchored by an adjustable, full-height tripod.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Dazzling Views with High Quality Optics</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">With a large 130mm (5&rdquo;) objective lens, this telescope has enough light gathering ability to bring out impressive detail in celestial objects. You can expect sharp, bright views of Jupiter&rsquo;s four Galilean moons, its cloud bands and Great Red Spot, the rings of Saturn, the trapezium in the Orion Nebula, and beautiful Pleaides Open Star Cluster. Highly reflective coatings on both the primary and secondary mirror enhance the views even more.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Perfect for the City or Dark Sky Sites</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Even if you live in a light polluted city location, StarSense Explorer is advanced enough to be able to pick out Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, the Orion Nebula, double stars, and a few more of the most famous celestial objects.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">But if you can take the telescope to an even slightly darker location, more objects will become visible. With this 5&rdquo; Newtonian and relatively dark skies, the Andromeda Galaxy, Hercules Open Star Cluster, and so many more are easily within your reach.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">The entire telescope kit weighs just 18 pounds, so it&rsquo;s perfectly portable and easy to bring on your next camping trip or to a remote observing site.</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Everything You Need to Observe Immediately</span></p> <p style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">When you unbox your new StarSense Explorer DX, you&rsquo;ll find:</span></p> <ul style="color: #333e48; font-family: &quot;;"> <li><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">130mm Newtonian reflector optical tube</span></li> <li><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">StarSense dock for your smartphone</span></li> <li><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Low powered (25mm) and high powered (10mm) eyepiece</span></li> <li><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">StarPointer red dot finderscope, perfect for using the telescope during the day or without the StarSense Explorer app</span></li> <li><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Altazimuth mount with slow motion controls</span></li> <li><span style="font-family: georgia, palatino; font-size: 14pt;">Full-height tripod with an accessory tray to keep you organized</span></li> </ul>
