Celestron Origin Intelligent Home Observatory

The Origin Intelligent Home Observatory from Celestron delivers beautiful views and stunning photos of the cosmos from an easy-to-use platform. The Origin gives you the powerful resolution of a Rowe-Ackerman Schmidt Astrograph optical system—the same telescope used professionally worldwide to detect satellite-threatening space debris—on a fully motorized and computerized GoTo mount. Simply open the Origin app on your phone or tablet, scan the sky, and select the object you wish to observe and photograph. The Origin will point to the star, cluster, or nebula and send rich, autofocused images to the screen of your device, tracking the object as it moves across the sky and refreshing with increasingly detailed exposures. Choose to hear the audio presentation for each object if you'd like more details. More advanced astro-imagers can download raw images via USB-A port for processing with third-party software, and a built-in holder accommodates 1.25 and 2" filters. The Origin sits on a full-height tripod with two-section legs.
