The following is not an endorsement, but is for your information only.
If you use a computer to control your telescope (limited to specific scopes at the present time) or use a laptop computer in conjunction with your telescope out in the field, you may wish to check out the following web sites:
ScopeDriver (shareware) allows you to connect your computer to one of the following telescopes:
See web site at: http://www.adpartnership.net/ScopeDriver/index.html
- Meade Autostar with RS-232 serial port;
- Meade LX200 (including LX200 GPS);
- Losmandy Gemini Level 1 or Level 3;
- Any telescope compatible with Autostar, LX200 or Gemini command set.
- Celestron software yet to be developed.
DarkAdapted (free) is a gamma control application program. It modifies your screen gamma settings so that you may, for example, preserve your dark adaptation while using your computer. High-resolution sliders allow you to adjust red, green, and blue video components individually and in real time.
