Get WiFi Access to the Universe with SkyQ Link 2

Celestron's updated SkyQ Link 2 WiFi Module turns your smartphone or tablet into your own personal planetarium and observatory!

Simply plug the WiFi module into your telescope’s Hand Control or AUX port and connect to its wireless signal with your device. Instantly, your device becomes a wireless hand controller for your telescope, guiding you through the alignment process and slewing to any celestial object with a simple tap.

As SkyQ Link 2 slews your telescope to an object, you can listen to hundreds of included audio descriptions on your device, which explain the history, mythology, and key features of the most popular celestial objects.

Activate the Sky Tour feature and SkyQ will display a list of the best objects to view based on your exact time and location. There’s no need to input GPS coordinates or set the time and date—SkyQ Link 2 takes this information directly from your device.

SkyQ Link 2 makes a great gift for telescope users of all ages and skill levels, from kids to advanced users. Take your family on a guided tour of the universe with SkyQ Link 2!
