SkyFi3 and Nexstar Evolution

I was just wondering if the SkyFi3 module will work with a NexStar Evolution 9.25 from Celestron.  I have had nothing but trouble with the built in wifi on the Evolution mount.  I even sent it back for repair at Celestron, it fixed one problem but came back with a new one.  If I can buy a SkyFi3 and have it work that would be great.  Otherwise I'm going to look into returning the scope all together and coming up with a new solution.

    Hi Matthew, 

    Yes - SkyFi 3 will work with the Celestron Evolution scope, rock solid wifi connection.

    Purchase with confidence.

    I received my SkyFi 3 and a Celestron serial cable today.  I noticed that the NexStar Evolution does not have a RS-232 port on the base, but it does have a USB-A connector.  How does the SkyFi 3 connect to the NexStar Evolution?

    Ok, I was able to connect via USB through my StarSense hand control, next step will be to get Star Sense to Auto Align.  Is that possible through SkySafari Pro and SkyFi, or will I need to use the hand control?

    Hi Matthew, 

    Using SkyFi 3 you will have to StarSense align using the hand controller.  After aligned connect with SkySafari.

    Thanks!
