    Hi Steve, 

    This is not planned at the moment.

    Thanks!

    I’ll second the request....please consider adding support for the Focuser.  The Focuser has the ability to set focus per object, and this addition to SkySafari 6 Pro (OSX and iOS and iPadOS) would be an extremely attractive ability for Observing Lists.

    I would pay a substantial in app purchase for this. Celestron has the technical communication details on their website ... why not give it a go? Its a new product that will be very popular across their entire telescope product line.

    I would too. I have SS6 Pro on my MacBook Pro, my iPad Pro and my iPhone. All synced through LiveSky....it’s a brilliant solution to all my observing needs, and adding Focuser control would be a sweet add indeed!

    Thanks Steve......that’s an exe and I’m all in on Apple.....plus I’m not a software developer.....I’m a Unix Engineer by trade: Solaris, AIX and RHEL.... build ‘em, deploy ‘em, and fix ‘em when they break.....but as far as what runs on ‘em.....not my department! But if they make the same plug-in available as a DMG, I’ll be happy to try it out.
