Skyfi/Skywire problem with CPC800

Recommended Posts

I have a CPC800 with Starsense. It has not been used for 3 years but GPS still finds position/date after a while. Furthermore I check it on the HC prior to use. 


Starsense is working perfectly; all items are spot on in the centre of field using Autoalign. Finds whatever I ask it to on the HC. However, plugging in SkyFi or Skywire after alignment as suggested, the object it way off – 10º to 20º -  in both Skysafari 5 or 6 Pro. I have no idea – SF/SW is used on an Ipad mini. The only difference between now and 3 years ago is that the IOS has been updated. 3 years ago all worked perfectly. Any ideas?

Thank you for your reply.

last night I tried the following :

1. Disengaged the GPS on the scope and set time manually (even though the GPS when on was right)

2. Switched off time and date in Skysafari.

It worked!! Good positioning and following through Skyfi/Skywire.

Thank you once again
