Celestron Accessories for Their Computerized Telescopes

Celestron offers the following accessories specifically for their computerized telescopes:

  • SkySync GPS Accessory (part # 93969) - provides precise location, date and time information to the hand control. While not a necessity, it is certainly convenient.
  • SkyPortal WiFi Module (part # 93973) - discussed in Chapters 4 and 6, this module allows a tablet or smartphone running the SkyPortal app to control the mount.
  • StarSense AutoAlign (part # 94005) - consisting of a StarSense hand control and camera, this kit brings fully automated alignment as found on the SkyProdigy to all other current Celestron computerized mounts.

All of these accessories plug into any available AUX or Hand Control port on your mount. If additional ports are needed, purchase Celestron's "AUX Port Splitter" (part # 93919).
