The Skyportal works well eventually. The instructions are vague and can be confusing, although there is help on line. The product it's self is, I think, badly designed. The button for selecting which way you want to connect to wifi or internet is very fiddly and does not appear to be very robust, It feels plasticy and cheap. I try to use it as little as possible because it seems fragile. Putting the Skyportal into the telescope is very easy however removing it is fiddly because an orange plastic hoop is in front of the connection tab which means you have to get an implement to help you remove it from the telescope, if you want to removed when you are transporting the telescope. The software when you use it is fairly easy to navigate around although you may find the instructions are different from the actual screen you see on your ipad or phone.
