Hi Mike,

 

I have a relatively new Nexstar5 SE with the SkyPortal module plugged into the Aux port. This is my travel scope.

 

The pad is a Samsung Galaxy Tab-S, the phone is an iPhone 7. Both exhibit the same behavior and the on-screen buttons sometimes feel 'sticky' or slow to respond.

 

The reason I was trying to use "connect" rather than "connect and align" is that I was using the "one star alignment" with the HC and thought it would work the same in SkyPortal and WiFi, which it did until I hit the 10 alignment point limit.

 

Your book should arrive in a couple of days.

Someone may have said this but I just want to re-emphasize.  The incompatibility of HC and Skysafari extends to different devices using SkySafari (or SkyPortal).  If you align with one device, you must continue to use that device for GoTo.  Alignment information is stored on device and picking up a second device will go back to whatever alignment info that device had last.
