Industry Leading Wireless Telescope Control System
SkyFi, our patent-pending WiFi-to-Serial adapter, is the only WiFi device on the market specifically designed for telescope control.
SkyFi is battery-powered for field use; your scope, SkyFi, and computer all run off batteries, or from a 12V source. It has a battery life of 8 - 12 hours under continuous use.
SkyFi requires no pairing, and no special drivers. It uses standard TCP/IP networking protocols and enables your telescope to be remotely controlled over the internet.
SkyFi can wirelessly enable almost any Go-To telescope with a standard USB or RS-232 serial interface. All you need is the rs232 cable supplied by the manufacturer.
SkyFi is very compact, barely larger than an iPhone. It can be easily attached to your telescope's mount or tripod; a strip of double-sided Velcro is included for that purpose.
SkySafari Plus and Pro apps, for iOS, Android and Mac OSX, are specifically designed to communicate with SkyFi and your telescope over a wireless TCP/IP connection.

SkyFi® is our patent-pending WiFi-to-Serial adapter, designed for wireless telescope control. If you have a computer-controlled GoTo telescope, SkyFi can use the WiFi capabilities built into your Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to point your telescope in the sky.
