Product Description

Meade Stella Wifi Adapter

The power of full computerized telescope control in the palm of your hand!  Use your iOS or Android device to control your GoTo mount.   Simply connect the Stella Wifi Adapter using the necessary telescope adapter cable, install the Meade StellaAccess app on your phone or table and you're ready to go!    A fully immersive, smartly designed experience allows you to learn about the night sky as you navigate from object to object.   Great for outreach and education, the StellaAccess app is easy to use.  The Stella Wifi can be powered with the included AC adapter or by using the included rechargeable battery.    Because the Stella is not a Bluetooth device there is no pairing to worry about and it will work without an internet connection.  All you need is a wifi enabled device.   Stella creates it's own 802.1 wifi network which you can then join.  And because it's a real wifi network, you can also change the name and password information.   

To use the WiFi adapter to control your telescope you will need the StellaAccess app which is available for Apple, Google Play enabled devices. 


Compatible Telescopes

The Meade Stella Wifi is compatible with all telescopes that use Meade's Audiostar, Autostar, Autostar II and Autostar III with the exception of Autostar #494 controllers.  

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 LX-200 Classic and GPS

  • Meade LX-400 ACF Meade LX-600 / 800 / 80

  • Meade LS / LT

  • Meade ETX 80 / 90 / 125 (when equipped with #497 or AudioStar Controller) 

  • Meade LXD 55-75 / 650-750

  • Meade LX 90/ LX80

  • 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).
