      Comments about Celestron SkySync GPS Accessory for all Celestron Computerized Telescopes:

      Pros: it works just as described.

      Cons: 2014, you would think GPS would come standard on something that requires perfect time and location. Guess you have to make a buck somehow.

              Comments about Celestron SkySync GPS Accessory for all Celestron Computerized Telescopes:

              I received my SkySync GPS unit on Wednesday, plugged it into an Auxiliary Port on my CGE PRO that is setup inside my home (pending the completion of my observatory) and shortly after turning on the mount, a GPS link was established. I was worried that I would have problems getting a lock from inside my domed observatory; but I got one from inside my home with the aluminum hurricane shutters on the windows lowered.

              I can't wait to get the mount set up in the observtory!

                  I ordered the skysync late one night and by the next morning it was already on its way to my doorstep. The item arrived on time and it was well packed. I tried it out the following night and it synced up with my Nextstar 8se easily.

                  Easy to use and setup even though almost complete lack of instructions. Go to celestron.com for help. Very accurate and quick. I no longer need to remember the time, date or go to the web to find my coordinates. Mickey mouse strap is useless once the scope rotates to scan for objects.
