How To Connect And Align Celestron 8SE With Celestron SkyPortal WiFi Using SkySafari 6 Pro On macOS? (Answer: Read On!)

I only get the "connect" option on my MacBook, it will connect to my 8SE, but not give me the "connect and align" option.  I finally gave up and used my IPhone that I also have Sky 6 Pro on to do a "connect and align"....

    Hi Tim, 

    I figured it out.  The process is a little different that SS6 on iOS.

    You need to manually align on three stars by centering on a star and tapping "Align".

    You need to center a star in the scope, select the same star in SkySafari, and then tap Align.  Do this for 3 or more stars (I believe you can have up to 10).

    I got a further detail on a follow up from Keiron, posting it here for others:

    Assume you are starting from zero aligned stars every time.
