I hate to knock any company, but I am very frustrated with the Evolution WiFi because it is not performing as promised. The SCT is a very nice performing scope, LSM 14.7 and res: 0.57 (8") and the mount performs well , but their WiFi apparently is weak or the antenna is faulty ( earlier comments from other owners) This is from me, personally. Some of the other members have done 'work-arounds' and aren't as 'mad' as I am. Maybe they were and they got over it ?
I don't know how to do some of this work around wifi stuff, and why should I is my attitude. I bought and paid $1700.00 for a telescope that was advertised as a WiFi and it doesn't perform as they advertised. I think Celestron should be ashamed to have a product out there that is causing consumers such problems.
I have the 8" Evolution, and I have an equatorial mount, the Celestron Adv VX , which is a Go-To mount which works fine, I have Celestron eyepieces, they are good eyepieces, and I have a NexImage (inexpensive) camera which has produced some really good Moon pix. Most everything is good merchandise, but beware of that Evolution WiFi, the mount is OK, it's just that WiFi unit.

I really think that you need to take this up with the dealer that supplied the Evo. They should be able to help.
