Fed up with searching for deep-sky objects? Now you can find every object that the sky has to offer. Without even looking. Make it easy for yourself: the Push+ Go kit transforms your Dobsonian telescope into an effective object-finding machine. Your telescope remains nonetheless a manually-controlled instrument, but with wonderful technical support.
The advantages at a glance:
Simply retrofit and get going to the stars
It's easy: retrofit your Dobsonian telescope and transform it into a unique object-finding system with this stand-alone Push+ Go kit. All the components you need to get going are already included. The kit is installed in a few simple steps, in just 10-15 minutes.
Digital encoders - your telescope's compass
Your telescope tells you immediately where it is. This is made possible by the two digital encoders in the azimuth and altitude axes. The high-resolution encoders record every step when the rocker box moves in any direction.
A wireless connection to your smartphone is made via Bluetooth 2.0. Simply insert your smartphone into the holder supplied and say goodbye to cable chaos.
It's really easy with the right app
Your Android smartphone (not supplied) becomes a navigator of the skies. The Push+ Go works best with the astronomy app Sky Safari 4 Plus ® or later (not supplied, available to buy in Google Play). Your display shows you a digital star chart that tells you exactly where you are looking. Now select your chosen stars, planets and nebulae. Move the telescope to your chosen object: at the same time the view from your telescope moves like a cross-hair across the sky. Unlike a GoTo system, the Dobsonian feel is preserved. And searching feels as simple and intuitive as riding a bike.
Navigating using a PC
Is there an alternative without a smartphone? Yes there is! Using the Stellarium® or Cartes du Ciel® software. Simply install one of these free programs onto your laptop - and you're ready for a wireless trip to the stars. No matter whether it's a smartphone or a PC, you can connect to your telescope via a Bluetooth 2.0 connection.
