    Default SynscanInit test for synscan initialization and polar alignment



    Hi every body,
    As new owner of a telescope I was wondering if an android application already exists to fill quickly all the requisted fields of the synscan.
    I did not find anything. I finally realized by myself this application; SynscanInit. Available on google play for free.
    Actually I need to test it in different locations (I am French). If you can do that and provide me with your feedback I will be greatefull.

    I pick up my NEQ-6 this weekend, I just installed the app and will try them together.

    I'm a big fan of SynscanInit, I use it every time I set up my NEQ6. Is it possible for the next version to be able to swipe to the Polaris screen, and then swipe back to the main screen?

    Thanks Mike for your support.
    It is in the pipe
    But I have to check first if this function is suitable with old android version which are still used by some users.

    Fair enough, the present version is better than no version at all
