What our web site is about

This site is all about converting a manually guided telescope into a computer controlled telescope. By computer controlled we mean one that is quite capable of pointing  your optics (via motors) to known celestial objects (aka Go To) and then holding them in the eyepiece for however long you choose (aka tracking). The objects most frequently looked at are not only the stars you can see un-aided at night. By objects we mean nebulae, galaxies, open and globular clusters, planets, double stars, the moon and sun. The data base of available objects is only limited by your observing location and size of your optics.

The mounting of the optics, whichever type you may have or choose, can be either a fork, german equatorial or a dobsonian mount. The software and hardware work equally well with either.
