Thanks for the great products!
Apologies for a similar re-post. I've found several old and new posts about questions similar to this, but I am having trouble figuring out what is possible and what exactly to buy.
My goal is to set up the *simplest* possible auto-aligning telescope setup for my friend's Celestron NexStar 8SE -- he is not great with handhelds, etc.
I am hoping that he can use the SkySafari 6 Pro iOS application as a single point of control to perform all the following functions:
- Set the date/time/position in StarSense (from iOS, not by typing in via Hand Control)
- Tell StarSense to auto-align itself (from the SkySafari iOS app, not via the Hand Control)
- Then control the telescope (from the SkySafari iOS app)
My plan is to buy the following things for him:
- SkyFi 3
- SkySafari Pro 6 for iOS
Will that support full setup and alignment via SkySarfari iOS?
Or will I need to buy other things like Sky Sync GPS and/or SkyPortal WiFi? Some posts suggest that some functions are possible via SkiFi 3 while other functions are possible via SkyPortal WiFi.
You guidance is much appreciated!
