About this deal

I'll have to replace the original HC with the one that StarSence sends? OK, well, I may have to get a gps, entering data and you can go through the standard manual alignment process, then slew the telescope to one of thousands of

Of course, the EdgeHD optical system offers bright, sharp views with StarBright XLT™optical coatings—a great choice for visual observers and budding astro-imagers alike.these two modules, the entire automated StarSense alignment routine can be controlled from your smartphone Automatic alignment of Celestron Goto Telescopes in just three minutes, this techmology aligns your telescope for you accurately on the night skywith the built in starsense camera.

That’s exactly what I have, an original version CGEM with a StarSense system I added about 6 months ago. Be aware 1. that the owner’s manual is awful; 2. that StarSense wants the time in 24 hour version not 12 hour AM/PM; and 3. that you’ll need to re-enter the date and time each session, unless you’ve got a GPS unit also. The SkyPortal module and app also work with the Celestron StarSense module to control the telescope. With theAUX port accessories: Supports StarSense and optional GPS accessory. Lightweight and easy to attach with the included tripod strap. When using refractor telescopes in the focal length range of 400-1000mm, a standard star alignment routine is very effective at creating an accurate pointing model for your telescope mount. However, when you increase the reach of the telescope to the realm of the Celestron Edge HD 11 (2800mm), the manual star alignment routine is no longer an option. I have had the SCT for 3 weeks. The first night I aligned (set date, time, location - latitude and longitude, correct time zone and enabled DST), calibrated (on Dubhe) and re-align as described in the manual and according to the Celestron online youtube video using the Hand Controller (HC). It worked great and GoTo feature worked well. Loved my first views of stars, Venus and the moon. However, I cannot get the alignment to work at all using the SkyPortal app (latest version on Android v3.3.0.1).
