Choose the very best filters for viewing Mars - think TeleVue!

When it comes to observing Mars, the "must have" filters were created by the optical experts at TeleVue - the BandMates. Why two filters? Standard colored filters have been used to bring out detail on the planet's surface, but impose an artificial color on the features. The TeleVue Type-A Mars Filter is dual band with different dielectric coatings on each side of the substrate which permits green and red through while rejecting all other visible colors. The Televue Type-B Mars Filter features a broadband anti-reflection coating on one side and filter coating on the other that makes it far more efficient and achieves penetrating views of the Martian surface. With its northern hemisphere tilted towards Earth, you'll have the opportunity to watch Mars polar cap shrink, as well as many other subtle albedo features.

Make the most of your planetary observing sessions!

Own a Computerized Celestron Telescope? Automatic alignment is now a reality...

Before Celestron StarSense AutoAlign, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope's eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself with no user input needed. With this one-of-a-kind accessory, you become an instant astronomer - even if you've never used a telescope before! StarSense is not only compatible with all of Celestron's current computerized telescope models, but backwards compatible with many older models as well.

The Celestron StarSense AutoAlign includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescope's optical tube, along with a specialized hand controller. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand controller, and StarSense starts capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database of 40,000 celestial objects. In about three minutes, StarSense will gather enough information to triangulate its position and align itself! Then, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more based on your exact time and location.

Even the most advanced telescope users will love using the affordable Celestron StarSense AutoAlign. StarSense replaces expensive software used for advanced mount modeling, providing superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. Add as many calibration stars as desired to give your telescope mount a new level of accuracy. And you don't just have to take our word for it. Check out what customers are saying...

" Hi, Ray! Just received my StarSense today, and I just tried it for the first time. You were absolutely right, a complete game-changer!!! It really made stargazing fun and not work, for the first time! Can't thank you enough for letting me know about this amazing new device. It was totally worth the wait as well!" -- Richard Zuccato

Check out the new iOptron CEM60! An extraordinary innovation in mount design...Now with a new payload!

This past year we introduced a new design concept -- the center-balanced equatorial mount (or CEM) called the ZEQ25. Now, we're proud to introduce the iOptron CEM60 with an increased payload of 60 lbs! The CEM60 puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. This makes the mount extremely light compared to its payload - a nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. And polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft.

The iOptron CEM60 is equipped with the most advanced GOTONOVA GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available. Its database includes over 300,000 objects. The other features include an adjustable counterweight bar, magnetically loaded gear system, gear switches on both R.A. and DEC axes, screw/worm type latitude adjuster and built-in or customized cable management system. The CEM60 - a new category (and payload capacity) of mounts for viewing and astrophotography.

Customers write! Here is an unsolicited written testimonial from a customer we received recently:

"I am new to astronomy, and did not know anything about it. So, my first reaction was "Well, I will get something low end just in case don't like it." I gave Khan a visit, and wow... the amount of time he spent educating me about the hows and whys of astronomy really changed my perception and confidence on purchasing the right telescope for me. The best part was when Alex showed me diagrams and picture comparisons of different size telescopes and models, eyepiecesᅠand so on. That kind of customer service is VERY hard to find anywhere else. I think what separates Khan from the other telescope retailers is that its a passionate hobby for him not just a job, and you can tell his enthusiasm right from the start, unlike other major telescope companies." --Stephen P., Toronto, Ontario
