The SynScan WiFi Adaptor Module is compatible with all of the SkyWatcher Go-To telescopes and mounts allowing full control via an android smartphone or tablet. Either the SynScan App or SynScan PRO App, which are available as a free download from the Google Play or App Store.
Control your SkyWatcher goto telescope with a smartphone or tablet.
The WiFi adaptor module creates its own WiFi network, so the telescope or mount can be used anywhere, without any need for internet access or wifi hotspots. After connecting your device via the Synscan App and following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the Apps intuitive touchscreen menus. The App also speeds up alignment by selecting location sensor which automatically inputs your exact location directly to your telescope.
The SynScan Apps also support the SkySafari Plus/Pro mobile planetarium App for Android and iOS (Please note that iOS connectivity at time of writing is currently limited and two devices are required).
Both the SynScan App and SynScan Pro App now support ASCOM standard platform for slewing, GOTO and Pulse Guiding. The SkyWatcher ASCOM telescope driver can be downloaded free from www.skywatcher.com
