Celestron StarSense AutoAlign Telescope Accessory




Become an instant astronomer, even if you’ve never used a telescope before, with the one-of-a-kind StarSense AutoAlign. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand control, and StarSense begins capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database. In about three minutes, it's gathered enough information to triangulate its position and 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.





Celestron StarSense AutoAlign Telescope Accessory Features:




  • Celestron StarSense automatically aligns your telescope in minutes


  • Sit back and let StarSense do all the work for you


  • Minimal user input is required


  • The Celestron StarSense AutoAlign automatically determines the identity of some celestial objects on the Celestial Sphere by using a built-in camera and sophisticated software


  • StarSense AutoAlign determines where your telescope is pointed on the Celestial Sphere


  • Offers amazing guided tours of the night sky




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.




How it Works: A small digital camera takes the place of your finderscope and attaches using one of two provided mounting brackets. The included StarSense hand control, with a database of over 40,000 celestial objects, 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, StarSense calculates the coordinates of the center of the captured image, thereby determining exactly where the telescope is pointed. Before 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!



Celestron StarSense AutoAlign Specifications:




  • Database of Objects: More than 40,000 objects


  • Comm. Ports: RS-232 communication port on Hand Control, Aux interface and USB on camera


  • Computer Hand Control: Four-line, 16-character backlit Liquid Crystal Display with 19 fiber optic backlit LED buttons
