TELESCOPE GLOSSARY

MICROSCOPE GLOSSARY
Imagine if your telescope could access the Global Positioning System so that it always knew when and where you were observing from. No more checking your watch, looking up site coordinates or fiddling with the keypad to enter the date, time, latitude and longitude. StarGPS uses a single cable to connect your telescope to the GPS receiver and automatically input these values... making your telescope setup much easier and more precise!

All About StarGPS

"Absolutely great... I never set up any of my mounts without it"
- Mike Overacker, Celestron CGE, LXD55 AR6, LX200 Classic 8" & 10"

"Operation is simple: plug everything in, power up the scope and wait for the StarGPS-NX's single LED to indicate it has successfully linked with GPS and uploaded the information to the hand control."
- Mike Swanson, NexStar 102 SLT

It includes a GPS-NX01 receiver, adapter cable, StarPatch software and serial cable. StarPatch uses your Windows PC to perform a one-time, quick and easy installation that reprograms the Autostar to accept GPS data (see "Using StarGPS"). You can then connect the GPS to your telescope, turn the scope on, and watch as the Autostar displays incoming GPS data (time, # satellites and signal strength as shown below). Once a location fix is obtained the Autostar will beep, display the results and skip ahead to the "Align:" prompt. If you already own a Garmin or Magellan GPS (with RS232 output) then you may prefer the StarGPS Handheld Package. The StarGPS Package includes: High performance GPS-NX01 receiver GPS-ASTAR cable to connect the GPS to the Autostar StarPatch software registration key to add GPS Setup capability to one Autostar 497/497EP PC-ASTAR cable to connect your PC to the Autostar The StarGPS Handheld Package includes: StarPatch software registration key to add GPS Setup capability to one Autostar 497/497EP PC-ASTAR cable to connect your PC to the Autostar A cable to connect your GPS RS232 output to the Autostar: eTrex-ASTAR - for Garmin eTrex, eMap or Geko GPS Garmin-ASTAR - for most other Garmin GPS Magellan-ASTAR - for Magellan GPS Rino-ASTAR - for Garmin Rino GPS For more details see the Star GPS Web Site.
