Can I use SkySafari 4/5 + Starsense + Celestron's SkyPortal app

Originally from ticket #26618.

Kit list.
SkyPortal and SkySafari 5 Pro on iOS devices.
SkySafari 4 Plus on iMAC
Skylink (MkI) WiFi plugged into the AVX mount.
Celestron Starsense.

If I perform the polar alignment with SkyPortal and StarSense over the SkyLink, can I then use SkySafari 4 on the iMac to target objects?


Bill Tschumy replies:

No, this will not work. When you do an alignment with SkyPortal or SkySafari when connected to a Celestron Wi-Fi scope, information about the alignment is stored in the app itself. So connecting from a different app will not have the required information.
