Celestron NexStar+ Hand Control with USB
For Celestron EQ Mounts

The Celestron NexStar+ EQ Hand Control with USB is the standard computer accessory on all current equatorially mounted Celestron computerized telescopes, including the Advanced VX, CGEM, CGEM II, CGEM DX, CGX, and CGE Pro models. New updates to the venerable NexStar controller include the ability to upgrade its software or control your telescope through 3rd party software via the mini-USB port located along the bottom edge of the controller. You provide the mini-USB cable.

With the push of a button, you can access a huge database of over 40,000 celestial objects and automatically slew to those objects with your telescope. Objects from popular catalogs, such as the Messier, NGC, Caldwell, and SAO Brightest Stars are included in the database, and so are the planets, of course. Not sure what to look at? Use the Tour Mode, and you’ll be shown a selection of the most popular objects for the time and date you are observing!

The Celestron NexStar Plus controller has a dual-line, 16 character LCD screen with adjustable backlighting. It includes many setup conveniences like SkyAlign, customizable max slew speed, programmable slew limits, and more. The NexStar + hand control includes USB Flash Upgradeable Technology, allowing users to upgrade its software with the Celestron Firmware Manager, which can be downloaded for free at
