celestronJust in case you don’t know, Cosmos is returning to the airwaves this year after a rather lengthy absence. The show, once hosted by the late Carl Sagan, is being revived by everyone’s favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Celestron stopped by the TPN set at CES to unveil the way it’s celebrating this new TV show.

The new Cosmos telescope is a 90mm refractor model, and it’s operated by WiFi. You can control it via an app on your mobile device and easily have the lens point at any object you find. It’s a powerful scope, and the intention is to allow viewers of the new show to be able to go out observe some of the same objects they watched Tyson show off on TV. The Cosmos Telescope will be available this March and retail for $399. You can check it out now on the Celestron site.
