This is a follow-up to your previous request #33768 "SkyFi Testing"
Both have the same reproducible symptoms.
Now I’m using iOS SkySafari 6 pro (started with version 4) and Stella (Meade would only talk to me if I used their Stella app).
Here is what I can reproduce.
I have connected via WiFi between my iPad and SkiFi through my settings and checked by typing in 10.0.0.1 to confirm SkyFi status.
Things I think we can now rule out.
1. Voltage is OK. I now use either Meade's LXPS17 power supply or 110vAC 12DC, 2500maA transformer
Now I’m using iOS SkySafari 6 pro and Stella (Meade would only talk to me if I used Stella app).
I have been living with this for a while. I would like to work with someone to find the problem.
I hope to hear from you.
I added this later thinking it might give some insight.
Ok, What do you think of this.
Trying everything I could think of. I have found that after I have both scopes working I can switch between scopes by simply switching skyfi’s between scopes from the iOS settings. I found there is no reason to disconnect SkySafari app to change scopes SSID. I can run both scopes. (one at time but not having to log out of one skyfi to change to the other scopes skyfi.) SkySafari will disconnect and reconnect over and over without a problems. NO connection problems doing this. Cool at star parties.
So then this happened
I was getting ready for public night star party at the Tulsa astronomy club. Big active club see website.
I was setting up both scopes. I had started SkyFi 1 and connectied it to my iPAD. But trying to connect to SkySafari to Scope 1 I got the connection error so i restarted SkySafari app and connection was made for the rest of the night. Now i started Scope 2 and connected to scope 2 by to skyfi But trying to connect to SkySafari here comes connection error. So I wondered what would happed if took the skyfi 1 that was working on scope 1 and try it on scope 2. Without turning it off I moved skyfi from scope 1 to scope 2. It gave me the same connection error. I then tried Skyfi 2 on Scope 1 it connected to SkySafari with no problem. Both Skyfi’s worked on scope 1 after that. I then I moved skyfi 2 back to scope 2 and got connection error. Now not wanting to restart the app I instead used scope 2’s scopes hand controller to goto a object that was up at the time. NOW I Skyfi 1 and 2 both work on scope 2. I Had no more problems for the rest of the night.
