SkyBT BlueTooth Adapter Android Wireless Control



A completely Plug & Play device that's smaller than a business card, the SkyBT comfortably attaches to RS232 serial ports using a DB9 male connector. Following Android to SkyBT pairing, tap Connect in SkySafari and the SkyBT is automatically configured with the proper settings for communicating with your telescope mount.



SkyBT is powered by two separately sold alkaline or rechargeable AAA batteries, and features a built-in recharging circuit. You can anticipate enjoying 8-10 hours of telescope control per set of fresh batteries. If an external power adapter is handy, plug it into the SkyBT's DC input jack. Input DC power requirements are 5 Volts at 300ma or greater. This jack accepts a standard 4 mm OD x 1.7 mm ID center-positive sized plug.



Note: Use only NiMH rechargeable batteries when externally powering the adapter. Applying power with alkaline batteries installed causes battery acid to leak and destroys the adapter.



The SkyBT is a Class 1 Bluetooth device with a much larger range than cheaper bluetooth adapters, typically about 100 meters.
