« on: February 22, 2018, 12:37:47 »

You can't use a skyfi adapter with the AstroEQ. If I recall correctly they don't speak the right protocol as they are designed to talk directly to the hand controller of a skywatcher mount and not the motor driver board.

Hello,

I am curious about the ST4 port. IOptron has a StarFi adapter that attaches to the ST4 port. It has a pass-thru port for a guide scope or HC. If an HC can manage the scope, then it should work. But, is the software in 4.7?

The HC discussion seems to have died because of school. The same for Bluetooth services. School is the priority in my book. Thank you for you work with the retrofitting scope community. Just recently, an amateur astronomer in Chicago captured a nova in process. This tool makes this possible.
