The Celestron StarSense AutoAlign helps you become an instant astronomer, even if you've never used a telescope before. 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: and StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, currently visible in the night sky.

The self-alignment technology behind the award-winning SkyProdigy series is now available for all of Celestron's current computerized telescopes and backwards compatible with many older models as well. (Please check compatibility).

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!

Even the most advanced telescope users will love using StarSense AutoAlign. This affordable accessory replaces the expensive software usually used for advanced mount modeling.

Software 2016
Tuesday, 2 June 2020  | 

If you want to use the handset that comes with this you have to update the software to work with telescopes post 2016. And it is a right rigmarole! Thankfully you can still use the Skyportal app instead - but this is not the point. Once set up with the app it is fabulous to behold the telescope going directly to the specific object you choose.
Still, I wish that it was updated before being sent out - it is 4 years out of date!

Celestron StarSense AutoAlign Making Sense of the Stars
Thursday, 30 April 2020  | 

I am extremely happy with the Celestron StarSense AutoAlign tool.

It has made setting up my alignment much, much easier and quicker than if I did the three star alignment by hand. (Around 3 to 5 minutes).

Due to the layout of my garden i don't always get to see Polaris or some of the brighter stars, so to have the StarSense seek out more distant and dimmer stars is really great.

Setting up the system is very easy, although there is an initial setup where you do need to know your astronomy, or at least have downloaded the rather excellent Celestron SkyPortal app on your phone. (Please remember that if you are using an earlier Celestron NexStar, like my 5SE, you will need the Celestron SkyLink WiFi dongle and a Celestron Auxiliary Splitter to enable you to use both tools). Both of which are available at PicStop I might add.

Do yourself a big favour and get yourself one and spend more time marvelling at the night sky than finding those elusive three stars...
