Sky-Watcher's SynScan Wifi adapter enables all their Go-To mounts and telescopes to be operated wirelessy from a smartphone or tablet using the SynScan or SynScan Pro app or, from a PC via ASCOM.
Easily connects to the mount’s hand control port via one of the supplied RJ12 -> RJ45 or RJ45 -> RJ45 cables.
No batteries are required as the operating current is provided by the mount. (Please note the EQ6 PRO should be connected to the Wi-Fi Adaptor Module using the hand control cable originally supplied with the mount).
Creates it’s own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere without reliance on other Wi-Fi or mobile networks. After entering your coordinates into the relevant Synscan App and following a simple alignment procedure - you are ready to explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menus.
Also supports 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).
The SynScan App and SynScan Pro App now support ASCOM for slewing, GOTO and Pulse Guiding. The Sky-Watcher ASCOM telescope driver can be downloaded from www.skywatcher.com.
