Celestron prides itself in creating this telescope for its customers, stating that its engineers have produced this telescope as a direct result of years of feedback directly from customers. One such benefit is its power source — an in-built Lithium-ion LifePO4 battery that is completely rechargeable and gives up to 10 hours of continuous use from the computerized, motorized telescope. This also helps to reduce waste as many other motorized telescopes that run on batteries utilize AA battery compatibility which need to be recycled after discharge.

It also comes with a sturdy tripod, strong single fork arm motorized mount, two accessory trays to store up to seven eyepieces and several connection ports for use with laptops and even to use it to charge external devices like smartphones.

The Schmidt-Cassegrain design, alongside StarBright XLT optical coatings, help produce a bright, sharp image for viewing even the dimmest stars.
