Celestron’s StarSense Technology, telescope alignment has never been easier: set up your telescope, press “Align” on the StarSense hand control or on the SkyPortal app then just sit back and relax. Found in the StarSense AutoAlign accessory and SkyProdigy telescopes, StarSense uses an onboard digital camera to survey the sky and take three pictures. It then analyzes the photos against an internal database (similar to fingerprint matching) then automatically aligns the telescope. The entire process only takes about three minutes!
