Manufacturer Description

Wireless USB and RS-232 Telescope Controller
SkyFi III is a WiFi-to-Serial adapter, designed for wireless telescope control. If you have a computer-controlled GoTo telescope, SkyFi III can use the WiFi capabilities built into your computer and your iOS or Android device to point your telescope in the sky. SkyFi III is the only WiFi device on the market specifically designed for telescope control, and it now includes a built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery for up to 12 hours of field use! In case this time is not sufficient, any USB port with at least 1 A current rating (and a matching cable) is sufficient for electrical supply or recharging.
SkyFi III includes both USB and serial ports - this means that it can control the latest USB-only telescopes from Meade as well as other telescopes with RS-232 serial interfaces.
Telescope Compatibility
SkyFi III can wirelessly enable almost any telescope with a standard USB or RS-232 serial interface. Models that have been tested and are known to work with SkyFi III include
Meade LX-200 Classic and GPS
Meade LX-90, ETX, LXD, LX-400 ACF with AutoStar #497 Controllers
Celestron NexStar 5i/8i, GPS, SLT, SE
Celestron CG5, CGE, CGEM, CPC
Orion Sirius, Atlas, SkyView Pro, SkyQuest XTg
SkyWatcher mounts with SynScan Controllers
If your Meade ETX has the AutoStar 494, change it out with the 497 (which has a serial port)
The only models that do not work with SkyFi III are those that have neither USB nor RS-232 serial ports. Such models include
Vixen mounts with StarBook Controllers
The Vixen StarBook controller uses an ethernet interface, which is also physically incompatible with SkyFi III. However, you can use an Apple AirPort Express (or other wireless router) to control the StarBook from our SkySafari iPhone app. This document from Vixen explains how.
Scope of delivery: SkyFi without Charger Cable
