Introducing the SkyWatcher WiFi Adapter
Give your Sky-Watcher GOTO mount WiFi capability with the brand new SkyWatcher Wifi Adapter.
Connect the mount to the SynScan App using the adapter. Download the app from Google Play or Apple App Store.
The SynScan Point and Go feature simplifies the GOTO process. Simply point your phone to the part of the sky you want your telescope to point, press the button,and the telescope will automatically move to the location you pointed to. It will then list all the objects in the neighbourhood.
Works with all the SynScan GOTO capable mounts:
- Star Discovery
- Star Explorer
- Collapsible GOTO Dobsonian
- StarGate GOTO Dobsonian
- Equatorial Pro
- AZGT Pro
- EQ8 Pro
- EQ3 Pro
- EQ5 Pro
- GT Series AZ-EQ5 GOTO
- HEQ5 Pro GOTO
The new SynScan app emulates the SysnScan controller on your smartphone or tablet allowing you to control your telescope without being tethered with a hardwired handcontroller.
When plugged in the SkyWatcher WiFi Adapter will create a wifi network called “SynScanWiFi_xxxxxx” – you can join this wifi connection from the settings tab of your preferred device.
Once connected you can open the SynScan app and tap the “Connect” button.
The 8-way direction buttons at t he bottom of the app screen allow you to slew the telescope – the number displayed in the centre box indicates the slew speed (just like the SynScan hand controller).
Tap the alignment icon and choose your preferred alignment method.
Once aligned, you can choose your target through the Star or Deep Sky menus.
