Simulation Curriculum, the publishers of SkySafari, have announced that SkySafari 7 is currently in beta testing prior to general release. In this latest version they have implemented support for ASCOM Alpaca and INDI and are looking for experienced Alpaca and INDI users to test this functionality in iOS.
If you are interested in participating in the beta testing, more information is available here. You will need to outline your experience with SkySafari, including what versions of SkySafari you have run previously, what telescopes you are controlling, what kind of astronomy you are involved in, if you are a power user, etc.
In order to participate you will need to have TestFlight installed on your iOS device(s). When you are officially invited to participate you will see and have access to the SkySafari SS7 Beta Testing forum. The SS7 Beta Testing forum is hidden until you are invited to participate. When you are accepted, you will be notified via a TestFlight email and then you will be able to both view the SS7 beta forum and download the SS7 beta app.
