Product Research


Overview: The Celestron SkySync GPS is an add-on 16-channel GPS receiver for select computerized telescopes. The unit can receive time, date, and location data from orbiting Global Positioning Satellites. SkySync plugs into your telescope mount's AUX port or into the hand controller port, if there is no AUX port. The SkySync module then provides a port for plugging in the hand controller. Adding the SkySync GPS to your telescope improves the speed and accuracy of its alignments, and keeps the unit date and time updated.

Mounting Straps: The SkySync GPS mounts to one of the telescope's tripod legs. Two 1.5" wide Nylon straps, each with hook-and-loop fasteners, are included: a 13" strap for the CGE Pro Mount and a 10" strap for all other mounts.

Compatibility: The SkySync GPS is compatible with Celestron Computerized telescopes, including the following telescopes carried by Crutchfield:
