StarGPS NX Package for Orion Atlas, Sirius and Skywatcher SynScan Mounts

Add GPS to your Orion Atlas, Sirius and Skywatcher SynScan Telescope!

Imagine the possiblities if your telescope could access the Global Positioning System... so that it always knew when and where you were observing from. No more checking your watch. No more looking up site coordinates or fiddling with the keypad to enter the date, time, latitude and longitude. StarGPS has solved your problems! It utilizes a single cable to connect your telescope to a GPS receiver smaller than a computer mouse and automatically input these values - making your telescope setup much easier and more precise!

StarGPS-NX is a "plug-and-play" solution for use with the Celestron NexStar, Meade Autostar, LX200 Classic and Losmandy Gemini telescopes. It includes a GPS-NX02 receiver and the proper cable for your telescope. No software is required since the GPS receiver outputs commands and data the telescope already understands. Simply connect the GPS to your telescope, turn on the scope, and watch the GPS LED indicate:

Power ON
Location Determined
Setup Complete

For Synta (Orion Atlas/Sirius GoTo, SkyWatcher SynScan) Systems, StarGPS-NX requires a hand control with firmware version 3.10+ or AZ 3.03+.

What I have always liked about all the StarGPS that they are simple: no setup required, no CD to download, no drivers, no fuss. Just plug it in and it does the work for you...These are products that work, and once installed you can forget about them and enjoy the night sky. Then, next time you are ready to fire up the telescope again....StarGPS NX02 is ready and waiting.
