In the past couple of years, we have covered hundreds of applications for stargazing and amateur astronomy. You can have a lot of fun with those apps. You will have even more fun with a decent telescope. Personal telescopes have become more sophisticated over the years. Here are 3 products that let you control your telescope using your iOS device:
Celestron NexStar Evolution 8: a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope that lets you control it from your iOS or Android smartphone. It has a rechargeable battery that lasts you for 10 hours of continuous observing.
