Steve Ringwood writing for Astronomy Now Magazine.

"... here is a new product joining the serried ranks of robotic telescopes, namely the SeeStar S50 all-in-one smart apo from ZWO. 

Featuring a 50mm, f/5 triplet apochromat, this combined telescope and mount incorporates an electric focuser, digital camera, ASlair intelligent controller, robotic alt-azimuth mount and a filter-switching device. It is all encapsulated into a mean machine weighing just three kilograms, or five kilograms if you include the tripod. 

Using Seestar's app on your smartphone, all you need to do is tell it (using WiFi or Bluetooth) what you want to image and it will do the rest via GPS, on-board sensors and plate-solving the stars in its view. You don't need to polar align or worry about tracking your target. If you have no particular targets in mind, then it will suggest them to you using its list of the night's best objects.

Once you have captured your images, you can use Seestar to directly communicate your success to other astronomers worldwide via AstroNet. All of this technology is available for what seems to me to be an astonishing price."

Worked straight out of the box

Down loading the app was very easy. My first picture of the Moon was really great. I followed this up with M1, M81, M82 and M83. The goto feature was very precise. Now waiting for more clear nights.

OMG! For the price of this scope it's amazing & just wish I could share pictures on here (Dreadheaded1 on app). After a few teething problems only minor gripe I've got is the size of the tripod but a sturdy camping table sorted that out

Ordered from FLO on 14th February, after reading the review in March 2024 Sky & Telescope, and it arrived the next day - first class service. There have been two short breaks in the total cloud cover since then, but these allowed me to shoot a moon video, and also a 21 minute exposure of M32/M33. This is an absolutely outstanding product. After pairing both an iPhone and an iPad Pro, with the S50, connecting the phone with the scope and levelling the scope are the only setting up required. I had purchased the Astro Essentials Precision Tripod Level Adjuster, which I would thoroughly recommend to simplify the levelling - much easier than adjusting tripod legs. Go To, auto focus, auto exposure levels, tracking, OIII/hydrogen alpha filter and transferring results to iPhone all worked flawlessly; and the quality of the pictures produced I can only describe as amazing. A recent soft ware upgrade will now allow videos to be stacked, which I have yet to try. There is also no need to stand outside in the cold, as the app worked flawlessly for me from indoors. I have yet to try the dew heater. I did not find the instructions supplied particularly intuitive, but there are lots of excellent guides available on YouTube which answered all my questions. This is a brilliant device which I fully recommend.

I ordered Tuesday morning and it arrived Wednesday Lunchtime. I knew i had to buy one, and they were selling fast, i was right as now sold out and there were 19 left when i bought mine.
Communication with Ann from FLO was first rate and very helpful in arranging the delivery in case i was out.

First light was a trial run this morning on the sun - amazing the images are crystal clear and its so easy to use, switch on, download the app and away you go. It was incredibly easy to use, and it will absolutely revolutionise my evening in the garden complimenting my visual astronomy - it wont ever for me at least replace visual with a scope but it certainly compliments it well for those looking to image without extra expense or the hassle that AP can be - looking forward to many more great sessions with the SeeStar. I would high recommend this kit! Don't delay just get one!!!

Along with the excellent service and support from FLO, the Seestar s50 is exceptional.

Typically, it has been cloudy, but have managed to use it when the clouds have dispersed. Easy to set up and use - the results were impressive. So portable and light - it was not an issue to carry onto a plane as hand held luggage. Waiting for a sunny day so I can image the sun!

I definitely don't regret buying it.

Major Advance In Astrophotography
07 February 2024  | 

For many years I have tried unsuccessfully to image the night sky. This was mostly due to not properly using the equipment I had and struggling with polar aligning etc. With the Seestar I have no such problems. It does everything for you. I can get it set up in around 10 minutes and it takes excellent pictures. It's all very straightforward being controlled from an app on my iPhone. In my view this is a major advance in technology, product development, ease of use, and affordability for astrophotography.
