Has anyone used Luminos App on IOS and is it worth £23.99 to install?
Apparently you can control the scope.

It would appear it needs a "compatible WiFi serial device" in order to control the mount.  I'm not exactly sure what that means.

A Skywatcher gadget, about £65. Most forums I follow reckon any sort of WiFi or Bluetooth connection is a bit shaky and not for astrophotography, also you could be hacked and Kim Jong could control your mount!
