What is EAGLE?
EAGLE is the innovative control unit for telescopes designed by PrimaLuceLab that makes astrophotography easier and quicker. In fact it replaces the normal laptop that usually is used to control the telescope and the cameras for astrophotography. But EAGLE needs lot less current therefore it does not require large and heavy field batteries to power the telescope for the whole night. Also. EAGLE powers all the parts of your telescope, such the mount or the camera: in this way you will not bring many power supplies, and you can use your telescope with fewer cables. EAGLE uses a Windows system (so it's compatible with all the astronomy products, and you can install any software you want to use, in addition to pre-installed one) that you can control from any tablet, smartphone or other external PC via the WiFi network that EAGLE creates at power up.
