Celestron StarSense Auto-Align for Sky Watcher Mounts
Celestron's StarSense Auto-Alignment system for their Sky-Watcher mounts is a massive convenience! It allows you to automatically align your computerized SkyWatcher mount, taking away the hassle of identifying and searching for your desired star; with the StarSense, you can automatically align your mount to point your scope where you like, and get straight to observing or imaging! It is compatible with a wide array of SkyWatcher mounts which will be listed below, and replaces the more basic SynScan controller that usually comes standard with those mounts.
StarSense technology was innovated by Celestron’s engineers, allowing a Celestron computerized telescope to automatically align itself with the night sky. With this technology, it's simple and easy to locate celestial objects. And now, this technology can be ported to a computerized Sky-Watcher mount with this new Interface Box, further expanding the number of scopes that can take advantage of StarSense’s revolutionary auto alignment!

Product QuestionsCan the StarSense Auto-align work inside a dome. I have read that it automatically captures wide field of view frames to compare with know star fields. The dome would prevent wide field of view pictures. I'm spending too much time on alignment and not enough on imaging. Thanks very much.Question by: Jackie on Jun 25, 2016 7:26:00 AMYes, the StarSense system can be used at sites with significant sky-obstruction (including from within an observatory dome). In this kind of situation, one would use the StarSense Manual Alignment mode, which allows the user to manually slew the telescope to open sections of sky where the Auto-Align module then snaps an image. To ensure a good model, you would necessarily rotate the dome in azimuth after each image is processed, so as to acquire additional points.Answer by: Eric Blackhurst (Admin) on Jun 27, 2016 5:17:00 PMI have the c925 evolution mount and a sw azeq6.
