Connecting Starr Night directly to Celestron Evolution

I'm just wondering how i can control my Evo 6 via wifi directly from Starry Night?

I can get it to connect using a combination of SkyQLinkPC & NexRemote. But Considering the NexRemote is not loading the correct firmware for my actual HC, i believe it's probably not fully supported. I don't see why i can use the Sky Safari Pro to connect but not from Starry Night?

    Hi S, 

    You have two options + one other you really should consider.

    1. With Starry Night you can control your Evo 6 using a USB to Mini USB cable direct from your computer to the mount.

    2. With Starry Night you can control your Evo 6 using our SkyFi 3, connecting from your computer to the SkyFi 3's wifi network.  This would let you control the Evo 6 wirelessly.  It's a little harder to set up, a little more hoop jumping, but doable.

    3. With SkySafari, using either an iOS or Android device, you can connect to your Evo 3 built in WiFi signal.  You can test this now using the free Celestron SkyPortal (a cut down version of SkySafari).  The Evo was really designed to be controlled using the SkyPortal app or one of our SkySafari apps (which is a paid upgrade).

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.
