    You should do the StarSense align just as if you were not using SkySafari.  Then after the alignment, connect using SkySafari and it should use the alignment in the hand controller.

    I wondering if there are any plans to either make the Sky Portal compatible with Starsense for Skywatcher, or add the connect and align feature to Sky Safari for the same Starsense unit?

    When using that on a Celestron Evo, it was a great feature to have, and hoping it will be again.
