Meade released a new wireless adapter to replace AUTOSTAR called STELLA, a new WI FI Adapter however I can't even find it on Meade Web site ??

Sometimes those things get introduced in the retailers first, before they show up on the Meade site.

 

Give it a few days or a couple of weeks and it will probably be there.

I am sure your correct Bill, it just seemed strange to see an add for it and not being able to see it on Meads web site.
Thank you,RickScofield

Wow!  That thing looks pretty neat!  It pretty much runs the gamut of the AutoStar Controllers, excluding the 494 (no plug-in on it).

 

I could use that with my ETX 80 if I plugged one of my 497 handsets into it, or one of my DS-2000 mounts with a choice of several different scopes.  If I could plug in an imager into it, I could set it up in my POD and look at things from my recliner in the house.

 

That needs some more investigating when the time comes.

From the photo in the PDF, it looks just like a SkyFi and the description of it sounds very similar.  Maybe OEM'ed for Meade by Simulation Curriculum...?

The link on the regular Meade site works now, or at least clicking on the advertisement when the Stella image came up  worked.  It really looks/sounds like a good thing.
