Nexstar 8 connect to SkySafari? new
      #5721743 - 03/09/13 08:08 AM

I have a friend with a first generation Nexstar 8. His hand controller only has the one plug that connects to the scope. There is no second hole for connecting to a PC or downloading updates. I know that he cannot update his handset but was wondering if there was any way he could use something like Sky Safari. Thanks.
Jim

just curious is that the handset that is to work with "starsense" the new auto align set-up that Celestron is coming out with? If it is someone in here was saying they say will work with Sky Safari and Sky Prod

Sky Safari needs to be connected to the handset so unless there is a port in the handset then there is no way it will work. There is an aux but I don't think it will work with that. Maybe a replacement handset?
