    Thank you for the great explanation. My Celestron Astro FI telescope works great and I was able to go stargazing straight away,

    Hello. Just purchased and swapping from the celstron supplied version. I have 3 questions please.

    1. I notice Set Time & Location is not ticked. Should it be? If I tick it and save preset, then the next time I edit it it is not ticked. So I don't know the status.

    2. I was hoping to have 2 profiles, one for direct and another for access mode. I probably don't need to do this, it seems to remember the wifi settings when changing the saved profile. But when I added/edit a second preset and saved it using a different name, it seemed to change the settings in both presets. 

    Thank you.

    I used this procedure on my Celestron Evolution 6 to SkySafari 7 Pro and it worked perfectly, minutes later they were cooperating.

    Thanks Keiron!

    There is no Celestron orange gear logo on mine. It seems to connect to wifi, but will not control the movemet at all. (SF 7pro)

    If you don't see the orange Celestron gear icon then either:

    1. You are not connected to the Celestron WiFi network, or...
    2. You are not using a Celestron WiFi preset.
