I'm not entirely sure. You can set the mount IP address and port (2000) in the driver settings, but I don't think it was tested before. If Celestron uses the same commands as it does for other mounts then it should work just fine.

SKYQ link is the celestron wifi interface in order to pilot the telescope without cable . As i am using stellarmate on a raspberry Pi , we have the wifi module on the rapsberry PI 3 so you can connect the Pi to the SKYQ or i can use the nexstar raket . i'm not familair with programation to modify a driver . i'll try with nexstar raquette.

thanks Richard.

Is the SKYQ connected to your WiFi network? Do you know its IP address?

So if anyone is checking this post, use the Celestron NexstarEvo driver for SKYQ and not the regular celestron driver.

Hi Jasem,

thank you for yesterday's support , It seems to work well but i have just 2 questions

- When i use the mount control the telescope movement is not continuous i have to clic one again to move it ?? is there a parameter somewhere i forget ?
- For the park position on Kstar is located at 180° of the mount position ?? what is the starting position polaris ? how can you define another park position ?

thank you for your help

1. Using the mount control (Ekos --> Mount Tab --> Mount Control), you'll see a pad to control the mount. You need to keep pressing the button to keep motion. Once you let go, the motion stops.
2. Currently, the NexstarEvo driver does not save custom parking positions. I asked the driver developer (Pawel) to look into it.

The nexstar evolution driver should support SkyQ as well, since the NSE have just SkyQ build in.
But note that I (developer) have only AltAz mount and did not test it on EQ variant.
The driver should work though. Note also that it is fairly new code and the scope needs to be supervised during operation.
Especially for EQ mounts. I would welcome any test reports and comments.
