Suitable for either standing or seated observing, the # 884 is adjustable from 34" to 54".Micrometric controls in both azimuth (horizontal) and elevation (polar) angle permit precise polar alignment of the telescope's fork mount for astronomical applications.Once a location fix is obtained the handset will beep, display the results and skip ahead to the "Align:" prompt. Celestron Nex Star, Nex Star and Star Sense controlled telescopes are manufactured by Celestron and include the models listed below.Star GPS-NX requires a Nex Star (firmware version 2.3, 104.0 or 4.0 as displayed using the hand control “Utilities: Version” menu item), a Nex Star or a Star Sense hand control with RS232 port (will not work with newer handsets that have a USB port).If you applying patches or using the cable information, be certain you check the version/model number first to verify compatibility.
