How to slew my telescope with Mobile Stellarium from my iPad

Asked by Mehdi Sanayei on 2016-12-26

Installed Stellarium 0.15.0 on Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad.
Created 3 telescope plugins, direct, indirect and virtual on Windows, Mac, Linux (slewing works on these 3 OS)
1 - OK - Telescope plugin started using port COM3 on Windows
2 - OK - Telescope plugin started using port /dev/uc.tty.. on Mac
3 - OK - Telescope plugin started port /dev/ttyUSB0 on Linux


 How do I slew from my telescope from my Mobile/Ipad Syellarium ?

Can I connect my iPad Mobile Stellarium as an external application to one of the Windows, Mac, Linux which as USB port connection, so from my iPad to slew my telescope ?

I think it's not possible, because Stellarium Mobile has no implementation of Telescope Control plugin.

On mobile versions see

You may be able to use some remote desktop app.

The RemoteControl plugin does currently not support the Telescope or Oculars plugins. (Very different usage environments, so we saw absolutely no need. Volunteers go ahead...)

Can you help with this problem?
