I have been using the skysafari app for years to connect and control my telescopes, version 5 was rather stable, I am current using version 6 Pro, since the AR update the app has exhibited problems in controlling my mount.
I am running the latest version of Skysafari 6 Pro on a year old maxed out iPad Pro. It is talking to either a iOptron 25ZEQ or a Meade LX850 Mount so my problem/issue is not mount specific.
I’m seeing two issues.
1) The app will stall/freeze for several seconds in the middle of operation. During these times the app and iPad are non-responsive. I saw the same behavior on a iPad 2 where I atributes the issue to the slower CPU but the iPad Pro has a faster processor and more memory and does the same thing.
2) The major issue I am having with version 6 is once connected to the scope via WiFi I can control the RA & DEC using the arrow buttons on the left and right side of the screen. But occasionally skysafari latches on to one of the arrows, after it’s been tapped, and will command the mount to slew several degrees when only a small motion was requested. At times this makes it almost impossible to center and object in the telescopes. I can reduce the impact by move the rate slider to its slows rate which at least reduces the distance the mount moves during these uncommanded moves.
I see these issue whenever I have connected to a mount. The problem can be seen on a iOptron, Meade or Orion dob Mount so it does not apear to be a mount controller specific issue.
