What is in the stars? You'll have a better idea with this gadget. It's a telescope that allows you to use your iPhone or iPad to control the view. One of the interesting trends with home telescopes these days is their preprogrammed ability to 'find' stars and interesting planets for you. So once you input the time and date into the Nexstar, it will guide you to perfect alignment with, say, Saturn. Its companion app helps this along. The telescope also has a relatively impressive five-inch aperture, too: this lets in more light than many rivals. This is an excellent beginner telescope.
