Starsense compatibilty between mounts

Recommended Posts

What are the differences between the Starsense for the AVX mount (or other Celestron mounts) and the Starsense sold for the Skywatcher Synscan mounts? For Synscan, it costs about $200USD more, and the ads show a 'junction block' that doesn't come with the one for Celestron mounts.

I have the Starsense for my AVX, and am considering adding a Skywatcher EQ6R. Is the software different between the two Starsense versions, or is one compatible with the other? Sure would like to be able to use the one I have with the Skywatcher mount if possible.

The junction box supplied with the Skywatcher version acts as an interface to translate the Nexstar handset commands to the Skywatcher protocols . Without it the Celestron Starsense and the Skywatcher Synscan mount would be incompatible.
