Does skysafari support Celestron Starsense?

    Hi, do any of the skysafari products support the Celestron Starsense auto-alignment and manual-alignment? I'm mainly interested in android but also IOS. Thank you.

    Bill Tschumy replies:


    SkySafari 5 on iOS and SkySafari 4 on Android both support StarSense alignment when connecting through the StarSense hand controller via the RS_232 jack on the bottom.

    If you are connecting to the mount via Wi-Fi then we will be releasing an iOS update in a couple of days that can do a StarSense alignment using SkySafari itself (not using the hand controller). In a couple of months, when SkySafari 5 for Android is released, it will be able to do this as well.
