Enjoy the night with both eyes!Own a Celestron Computerized Scope? Automatic alignment is now a reality/b>
Before Celestron StarSense AutoAlign, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope's eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself with no user input needed. With this one-of-a-kind accessory, you become an instant astronomer - even if you've never used a telescope before! StarSense is not only compatible with all of Celestron's current computerized telescope models, but backwards compatible with many older models as well.
The Celestron StarSense AutoAlign includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescope's optical tube, along with a specialized hand controller. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand controller, and StarSense starts capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database of 40,000 celestial objects. In about three minutes, StarSense will gather enough information to triangulate its position and align itself! Then, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more based on your exact time and location.
Even the most advanced telescope users will love using the affordable Celestron StarSense AutoAlign. StarSense replaces expensive software used for advanced mount modeling, providing superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. Add as many calibration stars as desired to give your telescope mount a new level of accuracy. And you don't just have to take our word for it. Check out what customers are saying...

Carbon fibre is a strong and lightweight material and has much better thermal stability compared to a steel tube. This is especially important for astro-photographers dealing with long exposure times. Imaging telescopes made of less thermally stable material can deviate from optimum focus after long time exposures. With a carbon fibre tube, it can remain in focus for a longer period of time and long exposure images will stay clear and in focus. Crafted with pyrex mirrors and includes 2" dual-speed power linear focuser and 8X50 finderscope.

Khan Scope is a TeleVue Star Display Dealer!Customers Write! Here is an Unsolicited written Testimonial from a customer we received recently:
"I am new to astronomy, and did not know anything about it. So, my first reaction was "Well, I will get something low end just in case don't like it." I gave Khan a visit, and wow... the amount of time he spent educating me about the hows, and whys of astronomy really changed my perception and confidence on purchasing the right telescope for me! The best part was when Alex showed me diagrams, picture comparisons of different size telescopes and models, eye pieces and so on. That kind of customer service is VERY hard to find anywhere else. I think what separates Khan from the other telescope retailers is that it's a passionate hobby for him not just a job, and you can tell his enthusiasm right from the start, unlike other major telescope companies." - Stephen P. - Toronto, Ontario
