Celestron StarSense Explorer LT 114AZ telescope review

A Newtonian reflector with a 4.5-inch/114mm aperture, the Celestron StarSense Explorer LT 114AZ (opens in new tab) was designed for getting high magnification of bright objects in the night sky.

Aimed at beginners, the LT 114AZ comes with StarSense technology, which is probably the finest solution currently available for aligning a telescope (save for ultra-expensive ‘smart’ telescopes like the Vaonis Stellina and Unistellar eVscope 2).
