SkyWatcher SynScan WiFi Adapter

SkyWatcher SynScan WiFi Adapter

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 it’s 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 App’s 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

Replaces the handset

The adapter plugs in to the handset socket of the mount, either with one of the two supplied cables or in some cases such as the EQ6 by using the original handset cable. Once fitted the standard handset is not used and should not be plugged in while using the wifi adapter.
