Why not look at the old battery, or look in the manual ?

It is impossible to assess the weight (or more correctly Mass of a star, as weight is a perceived function of Earth's gravity) without knowing the chemical make up of the star. That is why astronomers use the star's measured albedo to qualify and quantify them.

Read the manual. Follow the instructions therein.

Sky Prodigy does not have you align on stars but self aligns on images from the mount's camera (much like satellites do to orient), so ignore any incorrect suggestions about picking alignment stars, centering them, moving axes, entering correct dates or info. You should just turn it on and it figures everything out in 10 or so minutes alone.

Thiscode is likely a hand controller failure and you need to call Celestron. Mine did this too. good luck, you will need it...

Basically, enter Time, Date, and Site-- level the tripod and do a 2 or 3 star alignment.

All of the manuals are on the Celestron web site here--
