Celestron - StarSense Autoguider / AutoAlign System

Features

  • The Celestron StarSense Autoguider / AutoAlign System builds on StarSense technology to enhance and optimize point accuracy for easier long exposure imaging in astrophotography.
  • Alignment of the mount takes less than three minutes, requiring no user input, thanks to the star pattern recognition system.
  • Compatible with Advanced VX, CGX-L, CPC, CPC DX, NexStar Evolution, NexStar SE, CGEM II, CGX, CGEM DX and CGE Pro mounts.
  • The Autoguider goes further to address the challenges of longer exposures, ensuring even slight drift or misalignments don't affect exposure frames. The GoTo feature centers objects accurately, even with high magnification eyepieces or cameras.
  • Polar alignment becomes quick and easy when using the Autoguider, guided by the hand controller or CPWI software.
  • The StarSense Autoguider boasts a 4-element optical design, providing superior sharpness and resolution compared to standard setups. It accepts 2" filters, allowing the use of IR pass or Neutral Density filters if needed.
  • Equipped with a Sony IMX290-DLL 2.13mp sensor, the Autoguider captures clear frames for its alignment functions. Users can view live images on a computer if desired, as it includes an integrated computer module.
  • Celestron periodically releases firmware updates to improve functionality and ensure compatibility with NexStar+ hand control, CPWI telescope software (wired connection), or WIFI connection with compatible mounts or SkyPortal module.

The Celestron StarSense Autoguider / AutoAlign System builds off of the StarSense technology to boost and optimize the pointing accuracy to make long exposure imaging easier for the end user.

Seamless Easy Alignment with Compatible Mounts

In less than three minutes, the StarSense Autoguider can align the mount without any input needed from the end user. This is done through a star pattern recognizition system. The StarSense Autoguider is compatible with the following Celestron mounts:

  • Advanced VX
  • CGX-L
  • CPC
  • CPC Deluxe
  • NexStar Evolution
  • NexStar SE
  • CGEM II
  • CGX
  • CGEM
  • CGEM DX
  • CGE Pro

While the above referenced mounts already excel at pointing accuracy, the addition of the StarSense Autoguider takes it a couple steps further which is necessary for longer exposure where even slight drift or misalignments can ruin exposure frames and making post processing much more difficult. The GoTo feature centers objects even when using high magnification eyepieces or cameras.

With the help of the hand controller or CPWI software guide, polar alignment also is quite easy and quick when using the autoguider.

4 Element Optical Design

The Celestron StarSense Autoguider is composed of a 4 element optical design which gives it an edge up in sharpess and resolution than the user would get otherwise. With the ability to accept 2" filters, an IR pass or Neutral Density filter can also be mounted on if needed.

Sony IMX290-DLL Monochrome CMOS Sensor

To ensure the autoguider is getting clear frames to perform its alignment functions, it consists of a Sony IMX290-DLL 2.13mp sensor which can easily be viewed live on a computer if the user chooses. It also includes an integrated computer module to function properly.

Future Firmware Updates

Celestron will periodically release new firmware updates to ensure the StarSense Autoguider improves in functionality and stays compatible with the NexStar+ hand control, CPWI telescope software with wired connection or a WIFI connection with a compatible mount or SkyPortal module.
