Celestron Astro Fi 5 WiFi Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope

Celestron is not only changing the way we experience astronomy, but also the way you interact with the night sky. The Celestron Astro Fi 5 SCT can be controlled with your smart phone or tablet using the free Celestron SkyPortal app. Celestron’s SkyPortal app replaces the traditional telescope hand control for a 100% wireless experience. Just hold your smart device up to the night sky. When you find an object you’d like to view, tap the screen. Your Astro Fi telescope automatically slews to the object, while the screen displays information about it. It’s never been more fun to explore the universe!

The Astro Fi 5 creates its own wireless connection, so it can communicate with your device even in remote locations where cellular networks aren’t available. Getting ready to observe is quick and painless thanks to Celestron’s award-winning SkyAlign technology. Center any three bright objects in the eyepiece, and your telescope calculates its position. You can even generate a Sky Tour of all the best celestial objects to view based on your exact time and location. No prior knowledge of the sky needed!

Trusted Celestron Optics

Innovative WiFi technology powers the Celestron Astro Fi 5, but it’s the optics inside the telescope tube that make it a Celestron. For over 50 years, we’ve led the industry in optical technology—and we put that experience into the Celestron Astro Fi. This 127mm SCT with fully coated optics offers dazzling views of craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, the Orion Nebula, globular clusters, some of the brightest galaxies, comets, and so much more.
