Digitalization of telescopes used as learning media observation of the object is quite effective. However, the cost of operating this system becomes one of the obstacles. The approach to overcome the obstacle can be conducted by utilization of the present technology such as smartphone. Physical experiments have been conducted on the design of digitalization of the starter binoculars interfacing to Personal Computer (PC) using a smartphone. This experiment is aimed to design a more efficient digitalization of telescope observations. Smartphone stative is made in such a way that the camera in the right position on the telescope lens. Data retrieval is taken by a smartphone camera and ASI120MC camera as a comparison parameter. The data will be sent to the PC via an application installed both on smartphone and PC attributed by Bluetooth network. The camera is supported with a camera stative to keep it apart from binoculars. The observations obtained from this system is an interpretation between the camera on the telescope and PC. Such interpretations may produce images or videos observed by telescopes. This design can simplify the interfacing of telescope resulting good enough photo quality.
