How Do I Control My UNISTELLAR Telescope? Wi-Fi or Bluetooth? Is the Internet Needed to Operate It?


The UNISTELLAR App can be downloaded to a smartphone or a tablet and enables you to wirelessly control your telescopes via Wi-Fi. Up to 10 devices can be connected to one unit at the same time (1 operator and 9 observers).

Our telescopes need to be connected to another device (smartphone or tablet) to be controlled, but an Internet connection is not mandatory for that device. It's only needed to download our application. It functions with a smartphone or a tablet.

To benefit from the full UNISTELLAR experience (observation sharing, notifications...), we recommend you get a data connection, but if you can’t find one where you want to observe, you’ll still be able to use your telescope.

Your UNISTELLAR telescope creates its own Wi-Fi network; it doesn't use your home/ internet Wi-Fi. No internet connection is required to operate your telescope. Don't be afraid of the message "no Internet connection" in your phone settings.
