Celestron’s StarSense Explorer line of telescopes are some of the newest, and arguably most innovative (at least on paper) new telescopes on the market, and the newest effort of Celestron to make using a telescope as easy as possible. Celestron has been attempting to use various methods of technological assistance for the past two decades – first with the NexStar series of telescopes and SkyAlign (to mixed results), then with their StarSense technology (kind of a flop), their AstroFi and NexStar Evolution telescopes (my personal favorite) and now the StarSense Explorer.Unlike Celestron’s other computer-assisted offerings, the StarSense Explorer telescopes have no motors. Rather, it uses an adapter and the computing power of your smartphone to help you find your way around the sky, which we’ll get to after covering the basics of the telescope(s) itself.
