Celestron Astro Fi 102mm Telescope

The Celestron Astro Fi 102mm Telescope is a computerised alt-azimuth Schmidt Cassegrain telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing on the go. The nature of the lens requires a smaller secondary mirror that limits obstruction and increases contrast. This optical path results in a slower focal ratio and a narrower field of view versus a similar Schmidt-Cassegrain. Still, the optical benefits make this an ideal scope for lunar and planetary observation, with the resolution required for splitting binary stars and separating star clusters. This complete observation rig includes the optical tube assembly (OTA), a motorised mount controlled by the app, an aluminium tripod, two eyepieces, a 90° diagonal, and a red dot finder.

The OTA is mounted on a single-arm motorised alt-az mount. Guiding the mount is the SkyPortal app. Packed with over 120,000 objects, it is designed to help users set up quickly and start observing faster. The app offers multiple alignment procedures. It can automatically find objects in the night sky. It offers guided tours of the most exciting objects overhead on any given night with select audio commentary including histories, mythologies, and NASA images. The mount runs on eight user-supplied AA batteries, and the entire rig assembles and breaks down without the need for tools so you spend less time setting up and more time observing.

  • 1325mm Focal Length, f/13 Focal Ratio
  • 1.25" 10mm and 25mm Eyepieces
  • Single-Arm Motorised Alt-Az Mount
  • Wi-Fi Smartphone Connectivity/Control
  • 120,000+ Image Database

  • 90° Star Diagonal / Red Dot Finder
  • Adjustable-Height Aluminium Tripod

The Celestron Astro Fi 102mm Telescope is a computerised alt-azimuth Schmidt Cassegrain telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing on the go. The Astro Fi offers dazzling views of craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, the Orion Nebula, the Hercules Globular Cluster and so much more at night.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze and will have you observing in no time. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories and download the SkyPortal app in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customise the telescope’s height to your liking. The telescope kit is lightweight and portable, perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you.

For even more fun, Astro Fi’s lens cap does double duty as a smartphone adapter. Position your smartphone inside the adapter and then secure it over the Astro Fi’s eyepiece to capture images and video of all your discoveries.

Schmidt-Cassegrain Optical Tube

The Astro Fi comes with a 102mm optical tube, a great multi-use telescope with a 1500 mm focal length (f/10).  The Celestron C6 is equipped with patented StarBright® XLT coatings which visibly increase contrast on subtle lunar, planetary, and nebula details and higher light transmission for brighter deep space images and shorter exposure times. For this application, observers can use the C6 Celestron optical tube to view the night sky or as a terrestrial spotting scope. The Celestron C6 has the best balance of portability, handling ease, light grasp and price ever offered to the amateur astronomer. It is an advanced level instrument that is as easy to use as any intermediate level, and most entry-level, telescopes.

StarBright XLT coatings – Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system offers bright, sharp views with StarBright XLT optical coatings—a great choice for visual observers and budding astroimagers alike.  StarBright XLT is Celestron’s revolutionary optical coating system that outperforms any other coating in the commercial telescope market. There are three major components that make up our StarBright XLT high-transmission optical system design: Unique enhanced multi-layer mirror coatings, multi-layer anti-reflective coatings, and high-transmission water white glass. These three components of our StarBright XLT coatings result in one of the finest coatings available. For more information about our patented StarBright XLT coatings, visit here.

Computerised Alt-Azimuth telescope

Take in the sky with the computerised alt-azimuth telescope. This straightforward design allows the telescope to move in all directions.

Integrated WiFi & Celestron’s SkyPortal App

Control your telescope using your smart device. The Astro Fi series emits its own wireless connection to Celestron’s SkyPortal app to provide easy remote observing. Celestron’s SkyPortal app replaces the traditional telescope hand control for a 100% wireless experience. Scan the sky for an object you would like to view, tap the object in SkyPortal and watch your Astro Fi telescope automatically slew to the object. While observing, SkyPortal provides information on the object; it’s never been more fun to explore the universe!

NOTE: Due to the amount of information SkyPortal has to offer, we recommend downloading the app before going out to observe.

SkyAlign Technology

Getting ready to observe is quick and painless thanks to Celestron’s award-winning SkyAlign technology. Centre any three bright objects in the eyepiece, and your telescope calculates their position. You can even generate a Sky Tour of all the best celestial objects to view based on your exact time and location.

Accessories Included

The Astro Fi 102mm comes with two eyepieces (25mm and 10mm), a star diagonal, a smartphone adapter, and a StarPointer finderscope.  The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The star diagonal provides a right-side-up viewing for a more comfortable viewing angle when looking up at the sky. The StarPointer finderscope will help you quickly centre an object in your eyepiece for easier observing.

Smartphone Adapter – Image celestial or terrestrial objects with this smartphone adapter! The Astro Fi has a smartphone adapter to capture great images of the Moon, planets, and terrestrial targets like birds and wildlife. With its light, rigid frame, this accessory allows you to connect any smartphone to any telescope eyepiece with an outside diameter of 45mm or smaller. This smartphone adapter installs easily over the top of an eyepiece while bungee cords securely hold your phone in position so you can snap images or videos.  While most smartphones can be used with the case on, some very large and/or bulky phone cases (such as folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.

Starry Night Software

Download Celestron’s Starry Night Software and learn about the night sky, celestial objects, and how to plan your next observing session. Celestron Starry Night Software is the premier astronomy software package on the market, providing resources and knowledge to view our solar system and beyond.
