Large aperture optics with the simple to use wi-fi technology of the Astro - Fi mount provides stunning views and fast setup goto conveniently operated from your smartphone. Celestron isn’t changing the way we experience astronomy, but is definitely changing the way you interact with the night sky.
The Astro Fi 130mm Newtonian is a fully featured Newtonian telescope that can be controlled with your smart phone or tablet using the free Celestron SkyPortal app. Celestron’s SkyPortal app replaces the traditional telescope hand control for a 100% wireless experience.
Just hold your smart device up to the night sky. When you find an object you’d like to view, tap the screen. Your Astro Fi telescope automatically slews to the object, while the screen displays information about it.
It’s never been more fun to explore the universe!
CONTROL FROM YOUR PHONE OR TABLET

TRUSTED CELESTRON OPTICS
Innovative WiFi technology powers the Astro Fi, but it’s the optics inside the telescope tube that make it a Celestron. For over 50 years, we’ve led the industry in optical technology and we put that experience into the Astro Fi 130. This 130mm refractor with fully coated optics 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. The large 130mm aperture offers the best resolution and the short focal length gives you incredibly wide fields of view.
