  • Description

    SkyFi is our 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, or iPod Touch to point your telescope in the sky. SkyFi is the only WiFi device on the market specifically designed for telescope control, and it's battery-powered for field use.

    SkyFi includes both USB and serial ports - this means that it can control the latest USB-only telescopes from iOptron and Meade as well as other telescopes with RS-232 serial interfaces. 

    SkyFi requires no pairing and no special drivers. It uses standard TCP/IP networking protocols, and it can wirelessly enable almost any RS-232 interface - to GPS receivers, industrial monitoring and control equipment, internet routers and switches, and many more.
