While most smart telescopes are, for now, luxury items that cost over $1,000 / £1,000 / €1,000, there are exceptions. The smart telescope brand that has made the most progress in the last year or so is Chinese company ZWO, whose Seestar S50 has come to the attention of many amateur astronomers and astrophotographers looking to embrace the smart telescope revolution without spending a lot of money.
