Celestron Star Pointer... how does it work?

Hello all, I just purchased a Celestron Star Pointer off Ebay and I'm not sure the thing is working properly.

When I turn it on there are two lights, one is a very small and dim point in the centre, and there is also another much brighter light (which is oblong and is not at all a circular point) that moves around as I move my head. How is this thing supposed to work? When those two lights are in alignment is it aligned?

Thanks.

Dave
