    SkyQLink/Celestron WiFi Modules connect to the Celestron mounts using a special code, written by Celestron, that allows for aligning the Celestron mount from within SkySafari (a special UI is in place for choosing all Celestron alignment options as well).

    SkyFi 3 is not as specialized.  All mounts using SkyFi 3 must be star-aligned first using the hand controller before connecting with SkySafari.  That is why SkyFi 3 is connected to hand controller.  New Celestron hand controller have USBmini ports on the bottom, which can be used with SkyFi 3.  But, still, alignment is required before connecting.
