Perhaps every astronomy enthusiast dreams of exploring the night sky and capturing the wonders of the universe. However, for beginners, assembling a set of astrophotography equipment is often too complex.
The smart telescope of ZWO, Seestar S50 will potentially change the game for beginners.
According to introduction of the Seestar S50, its body not only includes a telescope but also integrates devices such as an altazimuth mount, electrical focuser, astronomical camera, filters, dew heater, and power supply.
When I first saw the introduction of Seestar, I couldn't help but think to myself, "Isn't this the automatic astrophotography telescope we've been waiting for?"
From the outside of Seestar S50, it looks sleek and minimalist. The telescope itself is compact and lightweight, weighing only 2.5kg, making it easy to carry.
The Seestar comes with a case that can hold both the telescope body and tripod.

Also, it has built-in UV/IR cut filters and dual narrowband filters.
And, Seestar includes a solar filter, allowing for a wide range of photographic possibilities.
On the side of the body, there is a physical power button. The users can figure out status of the Seestar through indicator lights.
Seestar S50 is equipped with a built-in lithium battery with a capacity of 22Wh, which complies with the standards set by the Civil Aviation Administration for air transportation.
Seestar can last for up to 6 hours on a single charge. Also, it can be recharged via a cell-phone power bank while in use.
The key feature of Seestar S50 is its intelligent automation. It comes with a smart app that allows for automatic target selection and tracking, enabling one-touch "GoTo" functionality for capturing the Sun, Moon, and deep sky objects.
After using it for a while, the most significant impression is how incredibly easy Seestar is to use. There's no need for complex equipment or even polar alignment.
