SkySafari Plus for Android cannot connect to my NexStar 8 GPS telescope via Bluetooth. The app returns the message "Connection Failure, SkySafari Plus can make a wireless connection to the scope, but the scope is not responding....". However, I _am_ able to control the NexStar GPS via Bluetooth by using the Celestron Handbox app (in insecure mode), so this confirms that my Bluetooth hardware and phone are definitely connecting to the telescope. Bluetooth telescope control also works correctly with my laptop PC. The NexStar GPS has HC 2.2 and MC 4.06 firmware.
Is there possibly some setting which I need to adjust in order to get SkySafari to talk to the scope? SkySafari is set for Celestron NexStar GPS/SLT/SE. Also, upon trial and error I found that some of the other scope types seem to cause the scope to move briefly, but will not control it properly.
