Automatic alignment of Celestron Goto Telescopes in just three minutes, this techmology aligns your telescope for you accurately on the night skywith the built in starsense camera.
With Celestrons patented StarSense Technology, telescope alignment has never been easier: set up your telescope, press Align on the StarSense hand control, and sit back and relax. StarSense uses an onboard digital camera to scan the sky and take three pictures. It then analyzes these pictures against an internal database (similar to fingerprint matching) and automatically aligns the telescope. The entire process takes about three minutes, and needs absolutely no user involvement.
StarSense Autoalign uses its own StarSense hand control, which comes packaged with the StarSense Accessory. The StarSense hand control allows you to automatically locate and point your telescope to over 40,000 celestial objects contained in its database, along with a Sky Tour feature that automatically moves the telescope to the best astronomical objects currently visible at that time. Plus, the hand control also has a readout that provides you interesting facts and scientific data about the object you are viewing. Keep your StarSense up to date by downloading the latest firmware updates for your hand control.
Communication Ports RS-232 communication port on hand control, Aux interface and USB on camera
