My CPC1100 EdgeHD hand control has a camera feature, but I can't find any support documentation. Anybody know about this? version:(HC: NXS 5.21.2064)

Do the SkyProdigy scopes use the same handcontrol? Might just be a nonfunctional feature from that series...or a preview of the ProdigyHD line! ;)

The Camera feature allows you to program in a goto and image command for up to 25 objects. It also has a stop at end of session, or repeat command. You can also set the number of exposures and their duration. Not sure if Celestron's Neximage cameras are upgraded to use this feature or not!?

As far as the SkyProdigy scopes using the the same HC, I don't know.
