I have connected my telescope to my Ipad via the Skywire but I keep getting an error message about the connection (sorry cant remember the message as i have put the telescope away) and when I try to goto a target the RA is looking unstable, stuttering between different numbers.

In settings I have assigned the "Celestron Nexstar 5/8" and mount type as "Alt-Az. Goto" Wonder if that's correct.

Hope somebody can help me.
