Is SkyFi compatible with Celestron new AVX mount

    Follow

    Thinking on buying SkyFi, since SkyWire, SkySafari for iPhone and Mac, and SatelliteSafari are all great products...

    Is it compatible with the new Celestron AVx mount? I don't see it in the list. If not, is there a workaround?

      Hi Almir,

      Celestron AVX is supported.  It is listed as a compatible mount in SkySafari's Settings ---> Telescope ---> Setup ---> Celestron AVX/CGE/CGEM

      Is the AVX mount supported in Sky Safari for Mac OS-X, 1.8?  I don't see it listed under settings-telescope.

      Hi UrsaMajor1,

      Please try one of the other NexStar mount types, for example: GPS/SLT/SE - which should work for you.  There is nothing different about the AVX so this should work just as well.

      I am unable to get SkyFi & Sky Safari to work with my Celestron AVX mount. I am using a serial cable that I know works with the mount (used Stellarium with it). I am able to create a Skyfi wireless network & log onto it with both my IPhone & Ipad, but then neither will connect to the mount.

      The AVX does work with SkyFi. It took a couple of messy attempts but it now works great with my AVX.
