It’s a premier type of telescope designed to meet the need of experienced observers and researchers who are more interested to get information on different celestial happenings into more details. The less experienced armature star gazers also get enough scope of extending their knowledge on the night sky, as this excellent telescope is accompanied with computer aided applications and information. Even those early users, who have little knowledge about the software and their application, can handle the telescope manually. It has three modes of alignments- Skyalign, Solar system align and 3-star align. The telescope can be remotely operated by mobile device app called skyportal for more detail analysis of astronomical events. The 8 inch aperture with f/10 focal ratio makes the star gazing experience amazing. The sky portal helps in pointing to the astronomical objects automatically and supplying information regarding the objects.
The product is very easy to set up. It’s not-so-bulky, single arm and to some way portable. One can do this even without the help of any prior instruction. The updated Skyportal app helps to learn and spot the objects more professionally. The light gathering capacity of the telescope is also excellent. Astrophotographers also find it a very apt device to catch splendid glimpses. The color differences among various distant stars in deep sky are also very much clear through this telescope. The ring of the Saturn and Saturn’s moons are reputedly gazed by the observers through this telescope.
Application of software is itself a major problem for novice star gazers. Those, who have less or no prior experience on astronomical alignment, may find it very difficult to control the telescope with the app.
The gazing ability of the telescope is very good. The observers report of having very satisfactory observation of various night sky objects.
