Instructions for Connecting Adapter to SynScan App


Power on the mount and use your mobile device to join the SynScan WiFi network. Open the app and tap the Connect button.

Slewing the Mount

Use the 8-way direction buttons to command the mount to rotate (slew). The number at the center of the buttons indicates the slewing speed.

Align the Finder Scope

Point the primary telescope to a fixed target. Identify the object at the center of the eyepiece and adjust screws on the finder scope until the reticle also points to the same object.

Mount Alignment Scope

Tap the Alignment icon, choose an alignment method and select the alignment stars. During alignment, use the 8-way slew buttons to first center the alignment star in the finder scope and then in the primary telescope. Tap the confirmation button when done; note that the app requires the last slewing direction to be up and right before tapping.


Tap the Star or Deep Sky icon and select an object from the catalogs. Tap GoTo and the mount will point to it. You can use User Objects to specify an object not in the apps catalogue. After completing the GOTO for an object, you can center it in the telescope’s eyepiece and then tap. This is optional but doing so allows subsequent GOTO for targets near this object to be more accurate.
