Will Comet Elenin  be a harbinger of destruction?

Yesterday,  I took a phone call from a Lady asking about  this Comet, discovered by Russian astronomer Leonin Elenin  this past December..
She wanted to know if  we could confirm the possibility of fragments of the Comet, when it sweeps closest to the earth October 16th 2011,
  might hit the earth, and  bring the "end times".
Of course, she had seen some information  and videos on Youtube and  wasn't quite sure whether to believe them or not.

I suggested that she purchase  our special "Comet Protection Pills".......ok, just kidding here, but these were actually being  sold
back in 1910 when Halley's Comet returned.

A few weeks ago, I spoke to another individual, who when I mentioned  I was an amateur astronomer,  also asked me
about the effects that this Comet would have on the earth. She too, had seen some "stuff on the internet" and had real concerns about
what the effects might be.  The scary part is, that she was seriously concerned about it!

For some reason, it seems this particular comet, while small in size,  has attracted a lot of attention and doomsday predictions and
also attracted the conspiracy theorist types, who claim the US government knows all about the impending doom, and has secretly built
bunkers for officials..

Now, here is the real deal on Comet Elenin. It is approximately a few kilometres across, and about one trillionth the mass of our Moon.
At a distance of approximately 35 million kilometres, it will have no effect on the earth whatsoever.

For amateur astronomers who wish to observe this Comet, it will be relatively small, however definitely worth checking out.

Besides, according to the Mayan Calendar, the world is going to end in 2012, so what's the rush?................

I'll keep this brief;

    Are you one of the the lucky folks who have a Celestron Starsense Autoalign presently?

Each unit is individually tested. 

Further good news, is that we have Celestron Starsense in stock.

IFor more information on what the Celestron Starsense Autoalign  is and what it does  here are the details just below.

Be sure to read my review below as well:

About the Celestron StarSense AutoAlign...


The revolutionary technology in the award-winning SkyProdigy telescope is now available for almost every Celestron computerized telescope.

Before Celestron StarSense AutoAlign, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope''s eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself with no user input needed. With this one-of-a-kind accessory, you become an instant astronomer - even if you''ve never used a telescope before.

Celestron StarSense AutoAlign is not only compatible with all of Celestron''s current computerized telescope models, but backwards compatible with many older models as well. (See compatibility list below.)

The Celestron StarSense AutoAlign includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescope''s optical tube, along with a specialized hand controller. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand controller, and StarSense starts capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database of 40,000 celestial objects. In about three minutes, StarSense will gather enough information to triangulate its position and align itself. Then, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more based on your exact time and location.

Even the most advanced telescope users will love using the affordable Celestron StarSense AutoAlign accessory. StarSense replaces expensive software used for advanced mount modeling, providing superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. Add as many calibration stars as desired to give your telescope mount a new level of accuracy.

"Well, it was certainly an exciting time at the annual Starfest Astronomy Convention held in Mount Forest, Ontario. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a campground full of astronomical telescopes; anywhere in size from about 2" to 36" in diameter. Khan Scope was also very pleased to officially show and launch the new Celestron Starsense Auto Align Accessory - the first one in Canada!

I had connected the device to my Celestron Nexstar 8 SE telescope, and was quite excited about testing it out under the dark skies of River Place Park. Well, alas Friday night turned out to be cloudy, so I had to wait until Saturday night to test the device. Patience is something you learn in the hobby of astronomy....the more you want a clear sky to occur, the less likely it is to happen.

I turned the Nexstar 8 on as soon as I could see a few stars in the sky, and entered the date and location on the Starsense unique hand control - a hand control which replaces your existing Celestron controller.

The Starsense hand control is a higher resolution device and was easier to read, than my previous control, so that was definitely a bonus!

The telescope then started slewing to the first of 3 stars that would be imaged and compared by the Starsense autoalign, and then went to a second and third star. The whole process took about three and half minutes.

And that was it.

The display read "Alignment Successful", and so I went to the hand control database, and selected the Solar System database, and entered the planet Saturn as the first "goto" object.....and VOILA the Nexstar 8 slewed to Saturn and the object was in the field of view of the eyepiece. Success!

The Celestron Starsense Auto Align worked exactly as Celestron claimed it would and my friends and I were impressed.
