Starsense is just awesome. A few tips that are not in the (poor) instruction manual.
If you fiddle with it in daylight (as you probably will on its arrival!) do ensure via <menu>; <time & location> that 'location' is set correctly. If you follow the "quick start" guidance it only ever gives you one first chance to set this then it defaults to California if you make an error (like not remove it's lens cap). It's then not obvious why all your GoTos are x hours adrift. You do get invited to input all of the other critical time/date/zone/dst settings except for this, and the fact it therafter skips over 'location' catches most of us out.
Learn how to use the Starsense HC at the same pace as the WiFi/tablet. Treat one as manual and the other automatic. Then remember that learning to drive in an automatic car doesn't prepare you for a manual gearbox. You will suffer from occasional WiFi or tablet issues and some things have not been enabled in the WiFi APPs. It's just easier to pick up any more advanced stuff later in the HC if you master each step in both as you progress.
Do add additional alignment points (up to ten). These significantly improve GoTo accuracy as they work like SYNC, but are remembered. Spread these across the sky and seasons. But you can add these over time as Starsense is really good without them.
Use a reticle cross hair EP to 'calibrate' or progressively 'calibrate' in ever higher magnification EP's. One way to get your Cal Star better centered is defocus and use the bigger 'donut'. Accuracy here pays dividends. You can remove the Starsense camera for transport and it won't lose calibration unless it suffers a heavy 'knock'.
Upgrade the SkyPortal APP to SkySafari 5 Plus. It's vastly better. But I can't justify recommending the far more expensive 'Pro 'version. The latter does have ten times as many objects, but are at such magnitude that you might need a Hubble telescope to see them. Then because 'pinch' and 'swipe' reveals ever more object, I found the small tablet screen just got too cluttered. The 2.5M objects in the 'Plus' version are more than enough to last you a lifetime of observing.
