Did you ever go the Bluetooth route to connect your NexStar to Android? If so, how did that compare with the SkyQ?
If that was for me Mike...I was looking into the skybt for android Bluetooth connect but than decided to go with the skyq link 2since there are no wires involved. I have all this stuff and accessories on my scope and I'm still completely wireless, which feels great! So once I saw the new skyq link 2 on the BH site saying new arrival and bill tshumy convincing me they work great I ordered one. Now the only problem with this one, that you may not like, is that the geniouses at celestron decided to put the AUX port, because that's where the skyq link goes, right under the diagonal if it were facing towards zenith. It takes up about an inch of space, I don't know why they would place it right there, Celestron does some really smart things but sometimes I question some of their judgement on certain decisions...I'll take a picture of this. So no, I never went to the Bluetooth route, it works great for you, maybe just remain that way?
There are no wires involved with a BT, either, except for a wire connecting the BT to the end of the HC. The SkyQ Link is connected to the aux port, so there must be a wire involved there. Pretty much the same thing. But both access the Android remotely.
Yes, the BT works. I think I'll stick with that until and if I get an Evolution.
Maybe you can get a longer wire to connect the SkyQ Link to the aux port? Then you could hang the gizmo over the side of the mount, and maybe secure it with a strip of Velcro. There it would be out of the way of the diagonal.
