new feature for Skysafari 6 pro (ASPA)

So I see All Star Polar Alignment is now implemented in Skyportal.

Any Idea if/when it will be available in your skysafari apps?

Also, any plans for implementing control of the new Celestron Focuser?

 

Thanks

    Bill,

    To clarify, you mean ASPA will be implemented in the upcoming release?

    Looking forward to it as now I can do everything I need to align the mount in SkySafari...

    Hello. I just came from a weekend with my telescope. I was confident that the ASPA feature was available on IOS, so i borrowed my wife's iPad (amazing, many thanks!). But I was wondering, is that feature available already on Android/MAC? I normally go arround with my Samsung Galaxy or, if going to make some pictures, my MacBook Air.

    Many thanks!!

    The feature is only available of SkyPortal right now.  It will be in the next release of SkySafari.  Also, in SkyPortal, it is only available on iOS.  Celestron hasn't released the new Android version yet.

    Correct, I was using SkyPortal on IOS. Can´t wait to buy the Android and MAC versions of SkySafari as soon as you relese it. Thank you very much! The ASPA feature really made a difference setting up the equipment.

    We don't have immediate plans for supporting ASPA on Mac.  It will likely come down the road but iOA and Android were our first priorities.

    Bill,

    Will the ASPA feature be in SkySafari 6 Plus on iOS?  This is what I am using now.

    What about support for the new Celestron Motorized focuser?  Is that available yet?

    Hi Jerry,

    Celestron Motorized Focuser support will be available in the next SkySafari update (6.7.0) due out shortly.

    I'm wondering if "All Star Polar Alignment" is now available in Skysafari 6. And also if it's available in the Plus version and not only in the Pro version. I sorely miss this essential polar alignment feature in my Skysafari 5 plus version.

    Was using Sky Safari 6 Pro on a scope with the focuser and it came up with a popup that i need to calibrate, but could not see anywhere in the app to do this. can see option in sky portal. so question is has this been implemented in the android version yet? or am i missing something fundamental
