Warwickshire, United Kingdom (20 September, 2011) – Sherwoods Photographic Limited, the UK’s leading premier specialist in telescopes and binoculars, is now retailing a selection of innovative Celestron SkyProdigy telescopes via their website.

Celestron’s SkyProdigy telescopes combine electronic motors, an intelligent on-board computer, a digital camera and StarSense technology to create an automatic, instant alignment telescope that requires no input from the user. Telescopes in the SkyProdigy collection incorporate automatic alignment features which take minutes to set-up; with a Sky Tour option installed should the user be unsure of what to observe. This feature offers a customised list of the most interesting objects in the sky to view according to the specific time and location of the user.

Other features of SkyProdigy telescopes include a battery pack providing over 30 hours of power; a fully computerised Altazimuth Mount; sturdy stainless steel tripod and accessory tray; quick-release fork arm mount and optical tube for easy, quick no-tool set up; the SkyX First Light Edition Astronomy CD ROM providing education about the sky; plus many others.

“At Sherwoods Photographic we are stocking two different models from Celestron’s SkyProdigy telescopes collection, including the 90mm Maksutov Cassegrain and 130mm Newtonian Reflector – both with batteries supplied at no additional cost to our customers,” commented Matthew Frost of Sherwoods. “We are delighted to be supplying such an innovative and ground-breaking selection of telescopes, and anticipate that night-sky novices and experienced astronomers alike will find the SkyProdigy models incredibly enjoyable and easy to operate.”
