Celestron AstroFi telescopes create their own wireless connection for an amazingly immersive experience of the Universe! Use your smartphone or tablet to control your AstroFi with the free, award-winning SkyPortal app from Celestron. With SkyPortal running, just hold your phone or tablet up to the sky and tap on any object you want to look at. Automatically, the Celestron AstroFi will move to that object, and SkyPortal will tell you about it! It's that easy!
The Celestron AstroFi is just as easy to set up as it is to use with SkyAlign onboard. Just choose any three celestial objects you see in the sky—you don't have to know their names!—and the telescope will align itself so that you can start observing. Remember, the AstroFi creates its own wireless connection! You do not have to be close to one of your carrier's cell phone towers in order to use your AstroFi telescope. This is huge, because lots of people like to get away from city lights to observe from darker skies. Go ahead! With AstroFi you can head for the hills and still use all its high-tech features.
You'd think that a telescope with all these bells and whistles would be out of most people's price range, but you'd be wrong. Celestron Astro Fi Telescopes start at just $399.95, and you can choose from a 90 mm refractor, a 102 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain, or a 130 mm Newtonian Reflector. At High Point Scientific, you will also get free shipping to destinations in the continental US, and a life time of free customer support.
