Celestron SkyPortal WiFi Module
Item # CE-93973
  • Here's a great gift idea for someone who already has a Celestron telescope!
  • Want to control your Celestron telescope with an iPad or iPhone? Plug this Celestron Sky Q Link 2 WiFi Adapter into your NexStar SE, SLT, CPC, CGEM, LCM, Advanced VX, CGE Pro or SkyProdigy mount, load the SkyPortal app onto your device (sold separately on the App Store and Google Play), and then point and click your way across the Universe!
  • With the cool Planetarium interface you can tap on any objects displayed on the screen and your telescope will slew to that object, and Sky Tour will provide a list of the best objects to view.
  • No batteries are necessary, the SkyQ 2 Link runs off of the power provided to your mount.
  • You can also align your telescope via SkyQ 2 with the addition of the SkyQ Link WiFi Adapter.


Celestron SkyPortal WiFi Module

The innovative Celestron SkyQ Link WiFi Adapter takes the technology behind their cool SkyQ app even further by activating a wireless control feature for most computerized Celestron telescopes. More than merely enabling completely wireless operation (including telescope alignment) , the SkyQ Link 2 will allow you to automatically slew the scope to an object with a simple tap on your iPhone/iPad planetarium interface. And a SkyTour feature will even generate a list of the best stars, galaxies, and nebulas to see based on the user's time and location.

Compatible with Celestron's SkyPortal app available for Apple and Andoid devices.  Containing 100,000+ objects, SkyPortal combines gorgeous astroimages and audio descriptions for a fully immersive observing experience.  A Sky Tour feature will generate the very best deep sky objects to observe based on your location, date and time.

SkyQ Link 2 Problem
I faced problem to use SkyQ near my house where so many WIFI SSID near. I cannot solve some error message from SkyPortal so send email celestron customer service like below.

I have Nexstar SE 5, so I baught SkyQ Link 2 to control my scope with Ipad & android phone.
But I couldn't connect SkyPortal App to my Nexstar SE scope on Ipad and android phone.
I faced error message like below. I tested on direct mode and ap mode both.

"Connection Failure. Celestron SkyPortal can make a wireless network connection to the scope, but the scope is not responding. Make sure it is connected and powered on. Also check that your scope type is correct."

SkyQ Link 2 LED lamps are normal, but SkyPortal give me an error message above.

I read same case on http://www.cloudynights.com/topic/368583-celestron-skyq-link/page-8, but I couldn't find any solution so far.

Do you have any solution for me?

At last, I got email from celestron like below yesterday.

Thank you for contacting Celestron Technical Support Services.
