About the StarGPS NX for Orion Atlas, Sirius & Skywatcher SynScan Unit...

Created by StarGPS and designed specifically for Orion, the StarGPS NX for Orion Atlas, Sirius & Skywatcher SynScan is the "plug-and-play" solution for your Orion Atlas or Sirius GoTo and SkyWatcher SynScan mounts. It includes a GPS-NX01 receiver and a GPS-Synta cable. No software is required since the StarGPS receiver outputs commands and data that the telescope already understands. Simply connect the StarGPS to your telescope, turn on the scope, and watch the GPS do its thing.
