The self-alignment technology behind Celestron’s award-winning SkyProdigy series is now available for all their current computerized telescopes, and backwards compatible with many older models as well (see compatibility list below). A small digital camera takes the place of your finderscope and attaches using one of two provided mounting brackets. The included StarSense hand control takes the place of your NexStar hand control. The camera automatically captures a series of images of the sky. StarSense identifies the stars in the images, matching them to its database. Once a positive match is confirmed, it calculates the coordinates of the center of the captured image, thereby determining exactly where the telescope is pointed.

Before this technology, 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! Watch the video below for more information.

Advanced Mount Modeling

Even the most advanced telescope users will love using StarSense AutoAlign. This affordable accessory replaces the expensive software usually used for 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. Achieve a new level of accuracy, great for locating objects in the camera’s field of view for astroimaging.

Search up any astronomical target, and the telescope will automatically slew to and track the object for you! Astronomy has never been so easy.
