Starsence / Nextstar handsets

Recommended Posts

Hi I have

2  x hand sets " Starsense " with the RJ11 FITTING AT BASE 4 wire connection

1  x  Handset  "Nextstar" with with the  USB FITTING AT BASE.

Can any body tell me what Celestron telescopes  each would fit,

There is no numbers to identify so I can sell them on all in good condition.


The Starsense handset with the usb fitting is in perfect condition.

The other 2 have slight marks on displays

They probably work with any Nexstar mount. I know that my C8 SE works with Nexstar, Nexstar+ and Starsense handsets, and the Nexstar+ and Starsense work with my Nexstar SLT.  The Nexstar probably works on the SLT too but I can't remember if I tried it.

You could issue a comprehensive description and let the buyers figure what they work with. 

The base connection I think only matters when you want to do remote control or update the firmware.

Be aware that the Starsense handsets probably don't work without the camera...

Nexstar + with a usb at the bottom I'd assume to be fairly recent..my avx had nexstar+ with a telephone fitting and it would of been 3 years old in Nov
