Well - first night out kind of a flop.
Installed SynScan Pro ap onto my Amazon Kindle tablet.
It seemed to work without a hitch at home in the living room.
Made the mount go in directions that appeared to be correct with no problems.
But out in the field at night it was another matter.
The tablet kept hanging up - like it was straining to keep up with the program.
When I got to a star to do the star alignment routine, the arrow pads would not work until the tablet could catch its breath for a while.
After a minute or two it would start working again.
But sometimes when I would press a button to center a star the tablet would hang up after having commanded the mount to move.
And the mount would keep on moving towards the opposite point in the sky - until the tablet came back to life again.
I'm wondering how much CPU power is needed for the SynScan app?
