Quote:I'm actually interested in the standalone starsense to add to my CPC1100. Not because I think it's too hard to point to polaris and then some other bright star, but just because I like gadgets. That thing is going to go for more than the SkyProdigy 70 package. Unreal.
Quote:Anyone know if the CCD camera in this scope serves as a star guider as well? Or just a one time align and then tracking?
