How to start:

1. Connect the WiFi AuxFi adapter to the AUX port on the mount (before powering on the telescope);

2. Turn on the telescope.

3. Turn on Wi-Fi mode on your mobile device and connect to an access point with SSID – “AuxFi”. When connected, the device asks for a password. The default password is “12345678”.

An example of setting up and controlling a telescope using SkySafari software:

1.Download and install SkySafari software. In the main menu go to “Settings”;

2.Scroll down to the “Telescope” section and click “Settings”;

3.Select the type of equipment used “Scope Type – Celestron WiFi” and the type of mount, depending on your setting “Mount Type – Equatorial Goto (German)” or “Alt-Az. Go to “. In the” Communication settings “section, select the type of wireless connection -” Use Direct Connect “.

4.Go back to the main menu and click “Connect”.

If done correctly, you will hear a pleasant sound, and a crosshair with concentric circles will appear on the screen, indicating the direction in which the telescope is looking. On the sides there will be buttons that allow you to move the telescope along the axes of the mount.

You can now point the telescope at objects using the SkySafari Object Database. For more information on how to use all the features of the SkySafari software, visit the SkySafari official website.

AuxFi also works with SkyPortal mobile app and CPWI app (Celestron PWI Telescope Control Software) for PC .

If necessary, SSID (username) and password can be changed to individual ones. To do this, open the SkySafari or SkyPortal application, go to the “Communication Settings” section and select the menu – “Configure Access Point”.

Happy observations and dark sky! Thank you for choosing AuxFi.
