Celestron StarSense - Repair

Recommended Posts

I have a Celestron starsense h/c and it is now showing application init Please wait. I re-flashed and factory reset the software etc, eventually I looked at the PCB and it looks like an integrated circuit  U10 has burnt out. Does anyone know what U10 is or what I could replace this with? Thanks.

On mine it’s just labelled as an ACD. No other details that I can see.

You can can get a replacement Starsence handcontroller here although I’ve never bought anything from these before so don’t know how good they are.

I know very little about electronics other than unless you know what caused a burn out, a replacement could soon go the same way.

I got the Celestron AUX splitter when I had my 8SE goto mount, which so far has proved to work OK, although TBH I don’t need it on my new AVX goto Mount as there are 2 AUX ports built into it.
