                             WiFiDir Wireless WiFi Telescope Control For Skywatcher / Orion mounts:  The adapter has 2 modes of work: TTL Mode and RS232 Mode Connected directly to the mount`s body bypassing the Synscan hand controller (with the switch in TTL mode) Connected to the Synscan hand controller (with the switch in RS232 position) In both cases the adapter is autopowered from mount`s or Synscan hand controller. You will need tu use the apropiate software depending if you connect via mount`s body or Synscan hand controller according to this table; For other mounts: For other mounts: For the rest of the mount`s like Celestron, Meade and Losmandy the adapter must work conected to the mount`s RS232 connector that is usually a RJ11 / RJ12 connector located on the mount`s body or hand controller, this mode of work will give you direct control from Skysafari and similar android APPs. Telescope control throught PC is also possible, if your planetarion software dont have support for TCP conection you can use HW Virtual Serial Port, the recomended version is 2.5.10, you can find it at the end of the page. For this kind of mounts that has no on-port VCC external power is needed, you need to use BTDir on board micro-USB power in, its accept voltage ranges from 5 to 24V. How it works: The adapter creates a TCP data conection between the software and microcontroller, the conection settings are made from the adapter web interface, to enter the configuration pages you need to connect to WiFiDir ssid and type on your browser the adapter IP address, by default is: the default password is “password” You can change then the adapter settings to mach your aplication or change your aplication settings to mach the adapter settings. The data conection is made throught the adapter configurable “Data port” Web server port is only used for serve the configuration pages and should be 80 or 23, can be config to any but 80 & 23 are the standart web ports that browsers check firts when you enter a IP address. The adapter can work as access point (smartphone conects to the adapter) or as station (the adapter connects to you wifi network). For station mode “Static IP” option from WiFiDir adapter must be unchecked unless your previously configured your router to accept the adapter Static IP. Restore default settings: If you enter wrong credentials for your ap in station mode or you do not remember them, the adapter can reboot with default settings in this way: Inmediatelly after power on the module press the "RESET" button with the supplied tool for 4 seconds, then release the button and power down the module, on the next power on the module will boot with defaults settings.

HW Virtual Serial Port: This software creates a COM port throught TCP to allow Windows based astronomical aplications comunicate throught WIFiDir adapter, this version is for windows but there is many other ones for MAC and Linux. Download from here: HW Virtual Serial Port 2.5.10
