The Seestar S50 is a smart telescope unlike any other on the market, integrating ZWO's renowned astronomy technology into a simple to use, all-in-one instrument. Unlike other smart telescopes, this one is actually made by an astronomy company who knows what they're doing!
Featuring built-in ASIAIR intelligent controller, EAF electronic autofocuser, GOTO mount, dew heater, astronomical camera and filter switcher, plus a high quality tripod, the Seestar S50 is a truly capable imaging instrument at an incredible price. The Seestar S50 features apochromatic triplet optics with high quality coatings, resulting in excellent control of chromatic aberration, unlike other smart telescopes which typically feature cheap achromatic doublets.
The Seestar S50 includes a narrow dual-band filter which cuts through light pollution and isolates the H-alpha and OIII emission lines of nebulae. Also included is a high quality white-light clip-on solar filter, allowing you to capture detailed images of sunspots.
The entire telescope can be controlled over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth with a mobile device. Built-in levelling sensors plus your phone's GPS makes setup quick and painless, and automatic alignment and GOTO using platesolving makes finding targets as simple as clicking a button. The integrated autofocuser takes the hassle out of focusing, ensuring your images are totally sharp every time.
The Seestar app features a comprehensive list of deep sky objects, with recommendations for tonight's best picks and detailed information about each target. Like the standalone ASIAIR, the Seestar provides comprehensive control over your imaging session without the need to be an astrophotography expert.

As an active member of an astronomy society (Sydney City Skywatchers) who loves doing outreach events, I was looking for a scope that would be quick a fool-proof to use at event. The SeeStar delivers and allowed me to show deep sky objects rarely seen in light polluted areas. When the Moon and Saturn were too high or blocked by the landscape we were able to find fun and colourful objects for the public to view on a hazy, partly cloudy night at Luna Park…between a brightly lit building and the ferris wheel the glow on the left is the ferris wheel! My husband and I are looking forward to trying out some of the more advanced features with fellow amateur astronomers from our club.
