If beginner telescopes are what you’re looking for then the Celestron Astro Fi 5 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is one that you should consider. This is one of the most recommended beginner telescopes to get started out with – whether you’re an adult looking to get into astrology yourself, or whether you’re buying for a child who’s interested in the field and wants to see outer space!
The difference between this telescope and many other telescopes is that your smartphone can find the sights you want to see for you! The Celestron Astro Fi 5 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope can be controlled using your smartphone and the completely free to use Celestron SkyPortal app. This app is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android, so you should be able to access it as long as you have a smartphone or tablet.
Despite being compatible with your phone, it provides you with a 100% wireless experience, so you don’t have to worry about getting in a tangle. All you have to do is hold your smartphone up to the night sky.
