      Hi Brian, we intend to include three built-in filters in Seestart’s current version and an add-on option to attach a snug fit solar filter onto its objective. With a 50mm aperture, Seestar S50 can be equipped with our custom accessories to fit standard 2 inch filters, providing users with a wider range of options to meet one’s specific needs.

    Hi, I want to purchase some items and I am from the UK. I have to enter a passport number or id number (is the ID number by National Insurance number?) as I do not have a passport. Also do I add the NI number to the comment section of the order?

    Kind regards, Craig

    How would you compare this set up to my Explorer Scientific 127, ASI2600, ZWO auto focus, ASIAIR PLUS and ASI290 and more? Or is this more like a product entry to Astrophotography for my Kids?

      Hi Curtis, Seestar integrates a telescope, electrical focuser, astronomical camera, ASIAIR, altazimuth mount, dew heater and filter wheel into one compact body with a net weight of only 2.5kg. No set-up required, you can start imaging in no time once the device is out under the night sky. With a few clicks on your smartphone, Seestar will automatically align to the target you selected and start tracking and live stacking. IMO, With a price less than 1/10 of that of your set up, it is abolutely good investment:)
