Leave the star maps at home; 114 LCM computerised telescopes can locate thousands of celestial objects for you automatically. To get started, just perform the simple SkyAlign alignment procedure by centring any three bright objects in your telescope’s eyepiece. From there, your LCM can calculate the time, date, and location and orient itself with the night sky.
Browse the hand control’s database and select any star, planet, galaxy, or nebulae in the database. Within seconds, your LCM centres it in the eyepiece and tracks it as it moves across the sky. Looking for something new to observe? Press the Sky Tour button and your LCM generates a list of the best celestial objects currently visible.
Computerised telescope automatically locates thousands of celestial objects using the NexStar+ hand control.
Follow the simple SkyAlign alignment procedure and you’re ready to observe in minutes!
