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

Set up was very straightforward and I downloaded the Synscan Pro onto both an Android Tablet and a laptop running XP. Both ran without a problem. The set up instructions are very clear and once everything is connected the adaptor runs seamlessly eliminating the need for another cable from the mount to the laptop.

The unit works fine on an Android tablet after a bit of a false start. (Thanks to info gleaned from members of the SG forum) I have only given it four stars since I can not use it with Sky Safari on my iPad. The two devices mentioned in the ad. should be read as two iOS tablets or phones. An expensive approach! And however I try I can not make it work with Windows 10 although I note others have done so. This unit is an excellent replacement for the handset and, dare I say it, some aspects of EQMOD which I use at the moment.
