Celestron Skyportal WiFi Module for IOS and Android

Get WiFi Access to the Universe with Celestron Skyportal WiFi Module for IOS and Android

Celestron's updated SkyPortal Wi-Fi Module turns your smartphone or tablet into your own personal planetarium and observatory!

Simply plug the Wi-Fi module into your telescope's Hand Control or AUX port and connect to its wireless signal with your device. Instantly, your device becomes a wireless hand controller for your telescope, guiding you through the alignment process and slewing to any celestial object with a simple tap.

As SkyPortal slews your telescope to an object, you can listen to hundreds of included audio descriptions on your device, which explain the history, mythology, and key features of the most popular celestial objects.

Activate the Sky Tour feature and SkyPortal will display a list of the best objects to view based on your exact time and location. There's no need to input GPS coordinates or set the time and date - SkyPortal takes this information directly from your device.

SkyPortal makes a great gift for telescope users of all ages and skill levels, from kids to advanced users. Take your family on a guided tour of the universe with SkyPortal WIFI module.

Celestron Skyportal WiFi Module, Powered by Celestron SkyPortal App

Celestron's full featured planetarium app, SkyPortal, works exclusively with the SkyPortal WiFi Module for telescope control. The app is available free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Celestron Skyportal WiFi
Rating:
19 January 2023  | 

Purchased the Skyportal WiFi module on 17 Jan 23 to interface with Skysafari 7 Plus, following some great advice from Simon and Joseph at Widescreen. Plugged the dongle into one of my CPC 9.25 aux sockets and after about 20 minutes of head scratching (mostly my finger trouble), got it connected to my iPad. Note that Sky Safari 7 needs IOS 14 so earlier versions will not support it. Used in anger in the early hours of 18 Jan and, with the Nexstar handset disconnected, and once aligned, the GoTo using my iPad was spot on with targets aligned dead centre in the eyepiece (the 3-star alignment made much easier with a RDF). First successful target was comet C2022/E3 ZTF and extremely pleased with the set up. Used again on the evening of 18 Jan and once again the GoTo was excellent. My only negative comment is that the dongle sits quite close to the CPC mount and can be a bit difficult to remove especially with cold fingers, hence 4 stars. Thanks again to the folks at Widescreen.
