is this a typo? this is from the link in post # 1, when I select the star sense under key technologies.
"The HandControl allows you to automatically locate and point your SkyProdigy to over 4,000 celestial objects contained in its database"
it must be 40k not 4k, wouldn't you think? otherwise why would you use this hand control with 1/10th the database over the one currently provided with most goto systems report a 40,000 item database (CPC models for example).
Yes, must be a typo. The main page says "The StarSense Accessory includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescope’s 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"
