After a successful StarSense alignment, have you performed the Camera Calibration using the hand control menu? This is a one-time requirement, providing you don't rotate the camera in the mounting ring or change the mounting location of the camera. The purpose of the calibration is to inform the system of the location of the center of the field of view in main optical tube as compared to the imaging sensor in the StarSense camera.
Sure have the first day I used the starsense I made the mistake of not doing the calibration step.
I've do the starsense auto when it finished it said alignment complete, pressed back to get to the Starsense Ready screen pressed on Stars button named stars used Vega mount slewed to Vega but like I was told it's normal for the star to not be in the eyepiece, didn't adjust or slew to center the star after the mount slewed to where Vega was with Vega not in the field of view of a 40mm eyepiece pressed back twice got to the Starsense Ready screen, went to menu located Starsense picked Calibrate shows the center numbers or something and to press enter then it says to center Vega so starting out I use a 40mm eyepiece get Vega centered in a 40mm eyepiece press enter then says to do a fine center so I switch to a 10mm eyepiece center the star in the 10mm eyepiece, press align controller says acquiring image then says solution found accept the new center tells me a realignment is needed press enter takes me back to the Starsense Ready screen pick Starsense Auto it does the auto align, when finished it says alignment complete.
Slew to a Andromeda it's off from the center close the edge of the eyepiece field of view with a 40mm eyepiece, slew to say the Pleiades they fit nicely in the center of the eyepiece maybe not "centered" but they at least fill the field of view of the 40mm eyepiece.
Slew to Capella centers fine in the 40mm eyepiece all stars are centered in a 40mm eyepiece anything not a star isn't centered.
The big problem I've with objects that are not stars is when switching from eyepiece to CCD camera or maybe a DSLR chances are that object say, Orion isn't gonna be in the camera field of view.
Which is the problem I had and the reason I decided to get the starsense, they box says...
Multi-point star alignment provides extremely precise GoTo pointing accuracy, centering the object in your eyepiece or camera every time.
So the only thing it's centering for me is the stars.
If it's not a star it's not centered it's only in the eyepiece field of view.
Switch means if I was to switch to a imaging camera since the field of view is I guess smaller then a 40mm eyepiece chances are the object is gonna be either outside the field of view of the camera or possibly almost out of the field of view.
The only thing I can really do is possibly wait and try using the Starsense with my AVX mount possibly using a 5SE isn't the best way to use it, I'm gonna assume that the Starsense really only works with a 5SE or mounts like a 5SE for visual use maybe with a AVX mount after it's been polar aligned the performance will be like they advertise..
Something tells me that the problem is alt azimuth mounts.. I don't know why Celestron would not say that the starsense when used with a alt azimuth mount is only for visual usage I mean that technically would make sense alt azimuth mounts are not ideal for astroimaging so having a object like a Galaxy, Messier, Nebula not being centered in a alt azimuth mount is the reason.
Would be very interesting if that's the case to me that's what it sounds like, using a starsense with a alt azimuth will be good for visual use only and for a equatorial mount after being polar aligned will make it work as it's designed to do...
Also my Celestron SkySync GPS now no longer wants to work shows the wrong information once the GPS says linked, dates wrong, time is wrong, zone is wrong, latitude / longitude is wrong as well.
Tried factory resetting controller didn't fix the problem tried a different mount same problem.
Appears I'm not the only one who has had this problem with the SkySync GPS worked fine for me for a while last two nights I seriously wondered why I had a bit of the problems I had after manually entering the information that problem was gone so didn't use the GPS decided to try again setup around 3 PM before dark GPS linked wrong information still.
