Alan,

Do not purchase Starry Night Pro to drive your Celestron telescope. Starry Night Pro (according to their web page) only works with Meade LX-200 and AutoStar telescopes. The Celestron protocol is completely different than Meade's, so Starry Night will not drive Celestron 'scopes.

This is an unfortunate circumstnace because the Starry Night user interface is much easier to navigate. I prefer it to TheSky, but alas... TheSky is the only game in town.
