I recently purchased a Celestron Sky Portal to use with my Sky Safari 5. The first night out using it everything worked well until the very end where it disconnected. I was using it again last night and it dropped the connection 3 times forcing me to re-connect and align. Grrrr...
Once I got it working I noticed that when I pressed the onscreen buttons to center an object in the scope there was a lag... sometimes of several seconds. Sometimes I would press the button and nothing would happen. Is this a connection issue with the Sky Portal? I read in the forums to change the Readout value to 3 per second. Will this correct the issue?nWhy did it work so well the first time and now it has issues? If not and issue with Sky Portal have you heard about this issue before?
My setup includes
- Second Gen SkyPortal Wi-Fi adapter
- Celestron CGEM II mount powered with 12volt PowerBank
- Sky Safari 5 on iPad running iOS 11.0
