Alrighty . . . now were are moving along. The "Celestron Wi-Fi" works, at least in a quickie 2 minute garage test. And yes, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.
Edited to add that I used the S10's default WiFi setup which is DHCP for the above. Also, since the S10 recognizes the SkyPortal as "Celestron-D56" it must be a 3rd Gen device (Celestron-xxx).
So one more question for now before I try this in the dark. Noting the following quoted from the MS website:
"With SkySafari using the "Celestron WiFi" connection method or SkyPortal, NexRemote or CPWI, you will first perform an alignment in the software/app itself. For all other software, you must first perform a regular alignment with the physical hand control before attempting to control the scope with the external software/app."
Since I have StarSense, does the above still apply? That is, do I start up the mount and run it completely from SkySafari now (w/ SkyPortal replacing the HC)?
Also, I've read that with a CPC 1100 with StarSense the only alignment options from SkySafari are manual and auto, is this correct? I like to do a solar system alignment about half the time.
