This exciting, new product from Skywatcher, the SynScan Wi-Fi Adaptor Module is compatible with all of Sky-Watcher's Go-To mountings and telescopes, it allows convenient, wireless control with your smartphone or tablet using either the SynScan App or SynScan PRO App, which are available for free download from either the Google Play or App Store.

Wireless control is also possible via ASCOM from a PC.
The Skywatcher SynScan Wi-Fi adaptor module easily connects to the mount’s hand control port with one of the supplied RJ12 to RJ45 or RJ45 to 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).

The Wi-Fi adaptor module creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any 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.

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 for slewing, GOTO and Pulse Guiding.

The Sky-Watcher ASCOM telescope driver can be downloaded from www.skywatcher.com

Review of the Skywatcher Wifi Adapter.
Have no doubts , this works very well ! The app is very easy to use and yields accurate results. After setting up the mount for levelling and polar aligning, just switch on the power and a small green light will come on the unit. A really excellent bit of kit and really recommended.

Advantages: Wifi connection is fast and the gps gives near instant results.
It makes a change not having to enter the time and position in the handset.
Star alignment, followed by searching for targets is very easy, with a simple press on the home logo to get you back. User objects are entered by RA and Dec, best use a screen stylus here.
There are as many options as you need.

Disadvantages: Hoping that the best of the SAO will be added in the future.
