Took few hours to get good connection. Once I used access point to connect. It works great. Has good range. Would suggest if you want to run scope from in your house this is it .
I haven't had a chance, to use the T-Ring because of my prior comments and work schedule. Also I have the incorrect Adapter which i have contacted the sales department without success also I have other issues and have made several phone calls and was promise to get return contacts.I feel like I bought a vehicle now they won't have anything to do with me if you understand my dilemma??
I was very happy with the item the item is very good thanks a lot for that item
terrible! not only can't I make it work I have tried to call OPT and Celestron with no luck------ for days
Have sent Sky Portal Module back for repair. Interface with customer service a bit cumbersome. Since then I have used SkyFi module and associated SkySafari Pro software and everything works great. I highly recommend the SkyFi system hardware and related SkySafari software. Still waiting on repair information on the SkyPortal module. Jerry E. Bayles email@example.com
The unit worked just as advertised. I haven’t used it much because of cold and cloudy weather, but my iPad synced to it easily and allowed me to direct the telescope through SkyPortal.
