Celestron StarSense AutoAlign
Become a Professional Astronomer instantly even if you never used a telescope before. With the one-of-a-kind Celestron StarSense AutoAlign, you are not required to identify or locate any star in the sky, StarSense automatically aligns your Celestron Computerized Telescopes, so you can begin observing in 3 minutes or less.
Before Celestron StarSense, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope’s eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself with minimal user input. Just enter your time, date, and location and let StarSense do the rest!
How it Works
Simply set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand control, and StarSense will begins to capture and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database. After collecting enough information to triangulate its position, Starsense will align itself. Then, press the Sky Tour button, StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more currently visible in the night sky.
Advanced Mount Modeling
With built-in mount modeling, you'll get superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. When your alignment needs to be perfect, add up to 10 additional calibration stars to achieve a new level of accuracy, great for locating objects in the camera’s field of view for astroimaging.
