  • Description

    Control your Celestron computerized telescope wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet with the new and improved SkyPortal WiFi Module. This innovative device is the perfect gift for amateur astronomers and gadget geeks of all ages. Even if you've never used a computerized telescope before, SkyPortal makes it as easy as tapping a touch screen.

    Plug and play access to thousands of objects

    Simply attach the SkyPortal module to your telescope's AUX port and switch it on. Since the device uses a minimal amount of power from your telescope, it requires no batteries or external power. The unit will generate its own WiFi network, accessible within about 30 feet of the device. Connect to the network from any Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, including the latest iPhones, iPads, and Samsung Galaxy devices. Just like that, you're ready to take control of your telescope--wirelessly.

    The experience is just as intutive within the SkyPortal mobile app. As soon as you launch the app and connect to your telescope, your device becomes a wireless hand controller, ready to manually slew to celestial and terrestrial targets by tapping the directional buttons. Let the app walk you through Celestron's simple SkyAlign procedure and within minutes, it's ready to locate thousands of celestial objects and center them for you in the eyepiece.

    What's more, you can take a tour of Tonight's Best objects based on your exact time, date, and GPS coordinates. As you observe, SkyPortal can give you detailed audio descriptions of the most popular celestial objects.

    Seamless integration with one of the best planetarium apps available

    The SkyPortal WiFi Module is only as good as the mobile app it pairs with. That's why Celestron teamed up with the expert creators of SkySafari, one of the most robust and popular planetarium apps on the market. The result combines an elegant user interface with telescope control, red night vision mode, and detailed information on more than 100,000 objects. Using the gyroscope inside your mobile device, SkyPortal helps you identify objects by simply holding the screen up to the sky. You can even plan a future stargazing session with accurate representations of the night sky up to 100 years into the future.

    Best of all, you can use all the rest of SkyPortal's features (except telescope control) without a telescope or the WiFi Module. Download Celestron SkyPortal for free today from the App Store or Google Play and experience it for yourself.
