New for 2013 is the SkyQ Link WiFi Adapter¬†from Celestron, which allows wireless control of most Celestron motorized telescope mounts that use the hand control computer. There is an IOS interface with telescope alignment mode and a planetarium interface that immediately aims at any celestial object you tap from the SkyView screen. SkyTour generates the best objects to observe based on your location and the current time. For use with a laptop, the unit interfaces with the NexRemote hand controller emulator program. The unit is powered from the mount and does not require any batteries. The SkyQ has been named one of Sky and Telescope’s 2013 Hot Products. It retails for $99.95.

    I’m not sure it will work with a Meade mount, you may need one of these: http://www.southernstars.com/products/skyfi/index.html

    Get a CCD for the eyepiece and this remote and go back inside your house on these cold winter nights to do a little stargazing :)
