Hi everyone, I am a newbie to Astronomy and would just like to ask this question.
I have the AZ-GTI Mount and I am controlling it using The Nexus 7 ( 2nd gen ) pad and SycScan 1.17.1, and also running the Sky-Safari Pro App at the same time and all run together very smoothly.
My Question is, the Nexus 7 has only a WiFi connection so when I connect to Syn-scan it warns me that this connection has no Internet access ( unlike when I use an iPhone ) but everything functions normally and I can Control the Mount and even run Sky-Safari Pro at the same time switching between programs with ease and lightning-fast.
BUT, as I am not connected to the internet does this mean that the Programs ( Syn-scan Sky-Safari Pro ) are not running correctly?
What I am asking really does SynScan & Sky-Safari Pro apps require an internet connection to function. Or is setting your Location and Date & Time all these programs require?
