Can SkySafari 6 Pro Replace The Hand Controller Of The Meade LX200 GPS? (Answer: No)

I am trying to use skysfari6-plus to control my Mead LX200GPS telescope as an alternative to the hand controler that came with the scope . I can slew the scope but I cant find where to access the electonic focus with the app.
Does sky safari support this?
Also, my telescope requires a 2-star alignment.
Does sky safari support that?

    Hi Derek, 

    You must star-align your LX200 using a Meade hand controller BEFORE you can connect to and control the mount via SkySafari.  You can not substitute SkySafari for your HC.  

    You can get a replacement hand controller from Meade.  Perhaps the #497.  But, ask Meade Support for advice first.

    SkySafari does not support Meade electronic focusers.

     

    Thanks!
