Help please! I am about to ban my telescope to the attic or else I risk insanity!!!! I cannot understand why the connectivity issues are sooo difficult (and the manuals from ZWO and SkyWatcher don't make it any  easier). I have a Skywatcher EvoStar 100ED with a Synscan GOTO mount (SW EQM 35), AsiAir pro, and a ZWO ASI183GT camera. I connected the ASIAir directly to the mount, bypassing the Hand control, because it is a pain to have to do 3 star alignment first, when with the ASIAir pro alignment it can be done so much accurately and faster. I used an eqmod cable to do this. I am able to connect to the camera and scope through ASIAir pro, no problem. However, when I try to also connect to Sky Safari Pro, using the IP address and port suggested  in a discussion thread (IP address: 10.0.0.1 AND  port 4030, I get the message " SkySafary can make a wireless network connection to the scope, but the scope is not responding". Can somebody please help? I am using an iPad to run the above apps.
