Add GPS to your telescope! 

The new 65-channel GPS-NX02 receiver works with the Astro-Physics GTO, Celestron NexStar, Losmandy Gemini, Meade 497/497EP Autostar, Audiostar, LX200 Classic, LX200GPS, LX200ACF, RCX400, Orion Atlas/Sirius GoTo, Sky-Watcher SynScan, Vixen StarBook and StarBook Type-S

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, faster and more precise!

If you own an Autostar 497/497EP or Audiostar controlled telescope such as the Meade ETX, LXD, LX80, LX90, LT series or an upgraded LX200 Classic then we recommend that you consider upgrading to the StarGPS Package which adds a StarPatch registration key ($79) and serial cable ($20). StarPatch uses your Windows PC to perform a one-time, quick and easy installation that reprograms the handset to accept raw GPS data. You can then connect the GPS to your telescope, turn the scope on, and watch as the handset displays incoming GPS data including time, number of satellites and signal strength as shown below. Once a location fix is obtained the handset will beep, display the results and skip ahead to the "Align:" prompt. Click her for more information about StarPatch.

        

The StarGPS Package includes:

  1. High performance GPS-NX02 receiver
