Discover the wonders of the night sky
Celestron, the brand of telescopes, binoculars and microscopes, offers us this official app to explore the night sky. At the same time, it also has great features to get the most out of your telescope. But how does it work and what exactly does it offer?
Celestron's new astronomy app redefines the way you can experience the night sky.
The perfect complement to your telescope
SkyPortal is a night sky observation and astronomy app that brings the wonders of unfathomable space closer to our smartphone. Its main functions are the following:
- Observation of the night sky from anywhere on Earth, being able to travel 100 years into the past or into the future.
- Identification of celestial bodies by pointing the mobile to the sky, such as stars, planets, constellations, galaxies and nebulae.
- Remote control of Celestron telescopes equipped with wifi.
- Animation of celestial events.
- Night vision.
- Astronomical photos section.
- Audio commentary.
- Large database with tons of information.
One of the most attractive features of this tool is that we can connect it via wifi with our telescope of the brand. Thanks to this function, by touching a celestial body on the screen, the telescope will automatically search for it so that we can observe it directly without having to touch anything else.
Explore the solar system: 120,000 stars, more than 200 star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and dozens of asteroids, comets and satellites, including the ISS.
Overall, this is a fantastic application that invites us to discover what is in the sky beyond the place that covers our view. And, if we have a branded telescope with wifi, downloading the APK file of this platform is simply essential.
Requirements and additional information:
- Minimum operating system requirements: Android 4.4.
