Attempting to connect my iPad Air via Sky Safari 5 Pro to SGP (18.104.22.168).
Windows 10 running under Parallels 11 on a MacBook Pro (OS X 10.11.4). Just pretend it’s a Win 10 machine.
Created an ad hoc network on the Mac. No password.
Connected the iPad to that network.
Configured Sky Safari to access the IP address from SGP Telescope control.
Scope type: Meade LX-200 GPS
Mount type: Equatorial GoTo (German)
Mount: CGEM with StarSense.
Sky Safari does connect to the mount when using SkyFi connected to the StarSense hand control. But that doesn’t allow SGP to connect to the mount. I still have access and control to the Atik 460EX camera and MicroTouch focuser.
Here’s what I got from Jared W so far:
“You’ll need to setup an Ad Hoc WiFi connection between your laptop and your iPad and connect them together. SGP will tell you what IP it is broadcasting on (in the telescope tab by where you enable the “external control of telescope”) and this is the IP you need to plug into Sky Safari for the connection after the Ad Hoc connection is established.”
So, done that - didn’t work.
