As SkyProdigy amassed accolades, Celestron engineers were already working to bring StarSense technology to other Celestron computerised telescopes. Now, with the StarSense Accessory, that dream is a reality.
The Celestron StarSense includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescope’s optical tube, along with a specialised hand controller. Just attach the accessory, push the Align button on the hand controller, and StarSense starts capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database of 40,000 celestial objects. In about three minutes, StarSense will gather 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 based on your exact time and location.
Even advanced astronomers will appreciate the Celestron StarSense because it replaces expensive software used for Advanced Mount Modeling, providing superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. Users can add as many calibration stars as desired to give their telescope mount a new level of accuracy.
