January- New Product Alert!!! Celestron Origin! Plus Orion Nebula and Crab Nebula.
Intelligent Home Observatory
We are very excited to announce a gamechanger in the amateur astronomy world! Celestron Origin, the epitome of stargazing and astroimaging innovation. This intelligent, all-in-one home observatory redefines the way we observe celestial wonders, bringing the universe to your fingertips like never before.
At the core of Celestron Origin lies the groundbreaking Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph (RASA) optical technology. With its 6-inch aperture and fast f/2.2 focal ratio, you can witness the universe in unprecedented clarity, capturing breathtaking images of faint, deep-sky objects with minimal exposure time.
The future is now with Origin's AI-powered capabilities. The built-in algorithms autonomously stack and process every frame in real-time, revealing galaxies and nebulae in exquisite detail, all without requiring any user intervention.
Setting up the Celestron Origin is a breeze thanks to StarSense technology. In under two minutes, this intelligent observatory scans the sky, focuses, and aligns itself, ready for you to select a target and start imaging.
Control the universe from the palm of your hand with the Celestron Origin app, available on both iOS and Android. Developed in collaboration with Simulation Curriculum, the creators of SkySafari™, the app provides a user-friendly planetarium interface, making navigation through the cosmos a seamless experience.
Share the awe-inspiring views with friends and family using the Origin app. Multiple users can enjoy the live feed simultaneously, and you can even cast the view to your smart TV or share it instantly. As you delve deeper into the cosmos, experiment with advanced features, download raw image files for manual processing, and explore night-vision capabilities or daytime land-based observing.
Pre-Orders start Now!
Peer into the night sky and marvel at the Orion Nebula, positioned just beneath the three stars comprising Orion's belt. Even amid city lights, it presents itself as a modest, misty patch. Grab a pair of binoculars, and its form becomes more apparent, revealing a slightly irregular shape with a luminous core.
Enhance your exploration with a telescope at lower magnification, exposing the nebula as a gentle, hazy cloud with a subtle greenish hue. Notice the intricacies along its southern edge, where captivating textures unfold, and discover the mysterious dark expanse known as The Fish's Mouth. Within this nebula you can also find the Trapezium, a gathering of three or four young stars, born a mere 300,000 years ago within the nebula.
Witness the beauty of the Crab Nebula, located in the Taurus constellation. Direct your gaze to the southeastern sky, specifically within the horns of Taurus. Also known as Messier 1, this supernova remnant captivates observers with its intricate tendrils of glowing gas and dust, a hauntingly beautiful aftermath of a stellar explosion witnessed by Chinese astronomers in 1054 AD.
Even in modest telescopes, the Crab Nebula reveals its intricate details. The central pulsar, a rapidly rotating neutron star left behind by the supernova, pulses with energy and adds an element of cosmic drama to the scene. Its eerie glow, composed of ionized gases, creates a spectacle that reminds observers of the supernova event in 1054.
