    Hello, I have connected this adapter:

    My telescope is a Skywatcher EQ (German) with Synscan, and I have an Android tablet. Although I can connect with the PlayStore "App Virtuoso" app, I can't with Sky Safari app. I checked that the parameters are correct: 9600 8 N 1

    Do you know the solution?

    I think to buy another adapter, but I don't know where to buy your SkyBT in Spain (or Europe). Do you know if this other works well with my telescope?

    Sorry, I forgot something in the last question:

    Ticket update:

    I have solved the problem. The issue was that SynScan controllers must not be in "PC-DIRECT" mode.

    Thank you
