About Astrojohn

I am a science geek! Interests Astronomy, Skiing, Philosophy, basically any form of technology including writing automation software for my observatory. I will also share this with others using the same EQMOD/Astroart tool set.

Astroart 6.0 Manager – Automate your observatory V9.12e – freeware.

I have just released the minimal system to automate your observatory.

Just unzip to the desktop and run the link to the planner and manager. (OM912e)

Astroart6.0 Manager V9.12e
There is also a system checker that will validate all your files.

You should create a TEMP folder on your desktop to store your images and planning files.

There are additional tools to create target files and to check they conform with AA6 target lists. If you need those just send me an email.  I also have tools to select galaxies for supernova hunting or to produce target lists of variable stars.

There are individual scripts that you can read with the configuration checker and customise to match your hardware, camera, dome, filters, focuser, mount etc.

Hope you find this useful.  I am happy to provide assistance to customise the system to your hardware, however, Astroart6.0 does most of the hard work for you.  If you can drive all your equipment with AA6 through ASCOM drivers or direct, you will not have a problem.


All the best
