Celestron StarSense AutoAlign

The revolutionary StarSense AutoAlign technology in the award-winning SkyProdigy telescope is now available for almost every Celestron computerized telescope.


Before the Celestron StarSense, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope's eyepiece. But those days are gone! When you add StarSense to your Celestron computerized telescope, it will automatically align itself, no user input is needed. You don't need to find an alignment star - you don't even need to know which stars are up in the sky! The Celestron StarSense Accessory takes care of all that for you.

StarSense is not only compatible with all of Celestron's current computerized telescope models but is backward compatible with many older models as well.


*Here is a full list, as of January 2017. If you do not see your Celestron Computerized telescope on this list, give us a call and we'll find out if they can hook up:

  • NexStar SE Series
  • NexStar Evolution
  • NexStar GT (with Aux. splitter)
  • CGE Pro
  • CG-5 (with Aux. splitter)
  • Advanced VX
  • Astro Fi
  • CGE
  • CGX, CGX-L
  • NexStar SLT (with optional Aux. splitter)
  • LCM (with optional Aux. splitter)

Please Note: The NexStar i Series, NexStar GPS, Early generation GoTo mounts (like CompuStar), and the Ultima 2000 are NOT compatible with the StarSense.

How Does the StarSense Work?

The Celestron StarSense Accessory includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescopes optical tube, along with a specialized hand controller. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand controller, and StarSense starts capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database of 40,000 celestial objects. In about three minutes, StarSense will gather enough information to triangulate its position and align itself. Then, to start observing, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more based on your exact time and location.

Even the most advanced telescope users will love using the affordable Celestron StarSense Accessory. StarSense replaces expensive software used for Advanced Mount Modeling, providing superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. Users can add as many calibration stars as desired to give their telescope mount a new level of accuracy.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • I have a CPC1100GPS/XLT. How well will this unit work with my current GPS feature? Besides Alt-Az alignment, will it also do alignment with the CPC mounted on a wedge? How well will this unit work with my autoguide camera?

    This unit works quite well with the CPC & it works in both Alt-Az mode and Equatorial mode (The scope on the wedge). As for this working with an autoguider, this unit works apart from it. The Starsense only does the initial alignment and does not work in

  • Will this work wit the Nexstar Evolution ?

    The Starsense will work with the Nexstar Evolution, but only with the included Starsense controller. You cannot control a Celestron telescope over WiFi and a phone/tablet app with the Starsense attached at this time.

  • What is the part number for the star sense bracket ? can we order the bracket without the star sense? is that the same bracket of the finder scope for the cpc 11 ? Thanks.

    Celestron does not have a current part # for just the Starsense bracket. The base of the main bracket is the same as the base of the finder bracket CE-93781, which is the same base as on the CPC11. The rest of the bracket is completely unique to the Stars

    According to Celestron, the field of view is 6.88º x 5.16º for the Star Sense or a little wider than a 50mm finderscope.

    H Daniel, The AA or LO-DM12 will mount on the 12-inch tube so you can fit it on the CGE Pro mount. We do have the adapters as well as the CGE Pro mount in stock. If you have any questions or want to order, please give me a call, Steve at 800-483-6287.

  • Will StarSense mounting brackets fit on a 10" Meade LX200 Optical Tube Assembly?. I have the Meade OTA fitted on a Celestron CGEM mount so interfacing StarSense for goto alignment is not an issue, just concerned about the physical mounting to the OTA. T

  • I recently bought a 12" computerized skywatcher. Would this StarSense device work on this dobsonian scope? Thank you

    Unfortunately, the Celestron StarSense will only work on Celestron brand telescopes using the Nexstar hand controller. The Starsense will not work with another brand's GoTo telescope.

  • I need a dew heater for my SSA. Will the dew heater for a 2" eyepiece work? If not, what size do I need?

    Good afternoon, any 2" eyepiece dew heater will fit the StarSense camera barrel.

  • Will this work with the Celestron Astro Fi range

    The Starsense should work, as the mount has two AUX ports, however it may be tricky to mount and balance with the short dovetails on the optical tubes. You may need to add a weight to the front to balance the weight of the Starsense.
