Description

This application is Beta and free until its first version release. Please use entirely at your own risk. Factual feedback by email highly appreciated. Comments posted here cannot be replied.

SkyCruiser is software running under the Android operating system, developed for the purpose of controlling Celestron Nexstar and compatible telescopes wirelessly employing Bluetooth® and GPS.
After mount alignment which requires the hand control, SkyCruiser basically replaces the hand control of the telescope mount with wireless control.
The software requires familiarity with the use of the connected telescope mount, its hand control, Android smart phone and basic astronomy.

Please be sure to read the manual before you fumble in the dark:

(also bundled in the application package).

    OK I AM LOOKING FOR HP EPRINTER

  • jeffsback

    WOW! Thank you very much!
     
    It works PERFECTLY with my Kindle Fire HD
     
    I searched all day for a direct download of this apk file for the D-Link SharePort Mobile app to load into my Kindle Fire HD 7″. I’m using it with SharePort function of my new D-Link SharePort Go Mobile Companion Router with Rechargeable Battery ( DIR-506L ). This app is NOT available from Amazon because this app and device combo enables Kindle users to infinitely expand their local storage, Amazon hates that because they’re focused on SELLING you stuff and they’re making it very hard for us to enjoy the content we already own.  I have over 600 DVDs backed up on a storage drive and now I can take any/all of them with me, where ever I go. Thanks again!!!

  • Thanks for creating such a cool post that is admittedly o.k. written are referring plenty of friends concerning this.
