Today I updated my StellarMate with the latest Indi drivers including the new Astrotrac driver. It took me a while but the good news is, that I got it to work. Here is what I had to do.
I had to connect the StellarMate to the Astrotrac’s WiFi station. I then connected my IPad to the mount’s WiFi and started the StellarMate app. It recognized the StellarMate on that network. In the app I then had to change the ip settings to that of my Astrotrac and use port 23. That did the trick and I could control things through StellarMate, including goto’s syncs and slewing. I have yet to use it under the stars, but it was promising at least.
Now I am wondering if you could use an ASIAIR the same way, once the driver becomes available. Can anybody shine some light on that?
