ZWO Seestar S50
A SMART Telescope
A new purchase for 2023 the ZWO Seestar S50. It is described as a SMART Telescope.
It takes just a couple of minutes to set up. It finds its position using GPS, then checks the sky for star patterns, so It knows where it is facing.
It then focuses automatically, which is a great asset, then asks you to specify a target. You can select from several lists.
Once you have told the Seestar which image you want to observe, it rotates on both axis to the required position, checks for positional accuracy and then starts taking 10 second exposures and stacks them on top of each other.
The Seestar comes in a plastic carry case with the tripod as shown and a solar filter which is a useful bonus (shown in second image above).
The Seestar has a built in battery pack, which provides power for about 4 hours use.
You can charge it whilst using if necessary.
