Does Stella require internet access to work?
Don’t worry, you don’t need internet for Stella to work properly! Unlike Bluetooth, Stella requires no pairing and no special drivers. Supporting a DHCP server or client, Stella can enable your telescope to be remotely controlled.

All you need is a Wi-Fi enabled device like an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android device.

How does Stella work?
Stella creates its own 802.11 wireless network. By default, this is an open wireless network called "Stella", but you can rename and secure as you wish.

You join this network from any of your qualified devices and just like that... you're ready to use Stella! As long as your device gets its IP address by DHCP, no additional network configuration is required.

Battery Life
Stella uses a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. It has a typical battery life of 4-8 hours under continuous use and offers a “power-saving mode” to aid in increased battery life. Stella can also be powered from an external source, like USB ports or wall socket. Cables for both AC power (120V, 60Hz) and USB to micro-USB are included.

Stella Apps, Software and Firmware To complete your Stella experience, you'll download and purchase our telescope control application, StellaAccess onto your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch or Android device. The Stella Wi-Fi adapter works seamlessly with StellaAccess app as well as the SkySafari software. Firmware is upgradable via computer. Note: You'll need the mobile application, StellaAccess to use the Wi-Fi adapter.

Does the mobile app, StellaAccess, come free with Stella?
No, purchasing Stella Wi-Fi adapter does not include the mobile application, StellaAccess. StellaAccess is available for purchase from the Google Play Store or Apple iTunes Store.

Compatible Meade Telescopes
Stella can wirelessly enable almost any telescope with a standard USB or RS-232 serial interface. Models that have been tested and are known to work with Stella include:
  • Meade LX200 Classic and GPS
  • Meade LX400 ACF
  • Meade LX600 / 850
  • Meade LS / LT
  • Meade ETX (when equipped with #497 or AudioStar Controller)
  • Meade LXD 55 / 75 / 650 / 750
  • Meade LX 80 / 90
  • Meade Magellan I
  • Meade Magellan II
Some Meade ETX models (60/80) ship with the Autostar #494 controller. To make Stella work with these scopes, you need to replace the #494 Autostar controller (which does not have a serial port) with the AudioStar (which does). Contact Meade to upgrade your controller.
