Pairing the simplicity of a Dobsonian with a comprehensive but user-friendly smartphone app, the StarSense Explorer 114mm f/4 Tabletop Dobsonian Telescope from Celestron
makes it easy to observe fascinating objects in the cosmos. No
computerized mount is needed—simply place your phone in the dock
attached to the optical tube, and after a quick alignment, the app will
scan the sky and guide you to Jupiter's Great Red Spot, Saturn's rings,
the Orion Nebula, and hundreds of other objects. When the bull's-eye on
your phone screen turns green, the object is visible in your eyepiece.
with a 114mm parabolic primary mirror, the telescope can pick out the
brighter objects, even when used in a city. A darker location will
provide access to many more. The Tabletop Dobsonian is highly portable
and can be used on a table, a car hood, or atop an optional tripod.
