Hello Terence,

Thank you for your comment.

I was referring to using Nexus with a motor controller like the one used on Halfhitch mounts or ServoCAT. In that case you need to use one of our utilities/applications to perform a two star alignment as SkySafari does not have a native support for Nexus.

In case of using a 'Push-To' telescope you can use SkySafari Plus/Pro for the two star alignment - in this situation Nexus does not need to calculate the drive rates and it does not calculate the current telescope coordinates (the telescope coordinates are calculated by SkySafari Plus/Pro).

A 9V battery does not last that long... It depends on the temperature and the battery type. A rechargeable NiMH 9V battery will last a couple of hours. It is certainly recommended to use an external power source like a 12V SLA/gel battery. Your 8Ah battery will last a few days powering Nexus.

Best Regards,
Serge.

I'd need cables from my encoders to the Nexus for my push to dob. Can you folks supply those?

Hello Ron,

Yes, the encoders cable can also be purchased together with Nexus. The cost varies from $15 to $25 depending on the type of encoders.

Please note that Nexus is using the same type of cable for encoders as SkyCommander, BBox, Argo Navis.

Best Regards,
Serge.

Great! I noticed they looked like the Argo Navis (on an earlier project I made mine two discreet cables vs. your siamese). I need to get cracken on my scope rebuild so I can justify getting this device. Just got the WiFi box for my NS11 and it is the cats meow.

Hello Everyone,

Nexus is now fully compatible with Android based devices. Nexus is acting as a WiFi Access Point and any WiFi enabled device can connect to Nexus. There is no need to jailbrake/root the device. Nexus works with Android based devices as easy as with iOS based devices.

To celebrate the festive season the price of Nexus has also been reduced by $50.

Best Regards,
Serge.
