Using with Orion Autotracker mount

Will I be able to control an Orion Autotracker mount directly connected with the serial adapter to an iPhone? Or will the serial adapter cable need to go into a hand controller?

    Hi Damian,

    The Orion AutoTracker mount is not sufficient to connect with telescope control software.  You need a GoTo hand controller.  Which means you need to upgrade first to the Orion Atlas/Sirius Computerized GoTo Hand Controller.

    From the Orion website:

    "While the StarBlast AutoTracker will not locate objects for you (without the optional Orion Atlas/Sirius Computerized GoTo Hand Controller), it will precisely track any celestial object that has been manually located and centered in the eyepiece."

    Sorry to disappoint you.
