Meade Stella Wi-Fi Adapter
This device enables you to control your GOTO telescope from your your iOS or Android phone or tablet when used in unison with the Meade StellaAccess app (available for purchase iTunes or Google Play Store), and appropriate telescope connector cables. It is capable of enabling almost any telescope with a standard USB or RS-232 serial interface for wireless use. Models that have been tested and confirmed to work are as follows in a list:
- Meade LX200 Classic and GPS
- Meade LX400 ACF
- Meade LX600 / 850
- Meade LS/LT
- Meade ETX (When used with #497 or AudioStar Controller)
- Meade LXD 55 / 75 / 650 / 750
- Meade LX 80 / 90
- Meade Magellan I
- Meade Magellan II
How to connect the Adapter to the StellaAccess Mobile Application:
- Select the telescope in use under Scope Type
- Select the mount in use under Mount Type
- Stella Name set to Stella or 10.0.0.1
- Port Number set to 4030
You can re-align the scope and the software anytime there is a discrepancy between the two with the Align feature. This synchronizes the scope to coordinates of the selected object. The bullseye indicated in the sky chart shows where the telescope thinks it is pointing. If that appears incorrect, the scope and the software must be aligned. Doing so is simple as physically centering the scope on a real object in the sky, and selecting that object in the sky chart to make it the current target object before them tapping the align button.
