Product Info

Manufacturer Description

Get WiFi Access to the Universe with SkyPortal WiFi Module (Formerly known as the SkyQ Link 2)

Celestron's SkyPortal WiFi Module turns your smartphone or tablet into your own personal planetarium and observatory!

Simply plug the WiFi module into your telescope’s Hand Control or AUX port and connect to its wireless signal with your device. Instantly, your device becomes a wireless hand controller for your telescope, guiding you through the alignment process and slewing to any celestial object with a simple tap.

As SkyPortal WiFi Module slews your telescope to an object, you can listen to hundreds of included audio descriptions on your device, which explain the history, mythology, and key features of the most popular celestial objects.

Select Tonight’s Best in the search menu and SkyPortal Wifi will display a list of the best objects to view based on your exact time and location. There’s no need to input GPS coordinates or set the time and date—SkyPortal WiFi takes this information directly from your device.

SkyPortal WiFi makes a great gift for telescope users of all ages and skill levels, from kids to advanced users. Take your family on a guided tour of the universe with SkyPortal WiFi!

SkyPortal WiFi Module, Powered by Celestron SkyPortal

Celestron’s SkyPortal WiFi Module works with our brand new planetarium app, SkyPortal. Available free on the Apple App Store and Google Play, SkyPortal is your key to the universe—with or without SkyPortal WiFi Module.

Developed in collaboration with the experts at SkySafari, SkyPortal offers an intuitive user interface with a robust database of more than 100,000 celestial objects.

      5.0 This is a great alternative

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is a great alternative to control a Celestron AllAz mount directly, instead of using a NexStar hand controller.

      5.0 Celestron Sky Portal

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I purchased my sky portal with the idea that will make the Gps coordates availabe to my Celestron AVX 8"SCT. Much to my surprise it automatically feeds my position to my Star Sensor but also sends the date and time and the rest of the information.

      Once you download the free sky portal app to your smart phone, you will be able to control the movement of your telescope with your smart phone.

      You can even do an alignment with your smart phone. The operation is quick and easy and of course Agena's customer service and shipping is 2nd to none!

      5.0 Neat product

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      It's not essential, but it sure is slick. I'm a beginner and it does make it easy using this with a tablet. Use the Skyportal app to control your scope and learn about different objects.

      Well, once again Agena Astro provides a great selection of products at outstanding prices! The Celestron SkyPortal Wifi module allowed me to find 6 deep space objects in less than 30 minutes using Sky Safari 5+ Easy to setup & use with my Android tablet. You made my day Agena!
