ASTRO-RES Observatory Station with 3m dome - the most advanced remote control platform:

PLL Observatory Stations are remotely controlled with the included EAGLE computer that runs Windows, so you are free to install the Windows software you prefer to control all the devices of the telescope, based on your application. You can remotely control the Observatory Station through a WiFi or Ethernet connection, even through the Internet. And you can easily add also security cameras, weather stations and UPS backup batteries.
More, all PLL Observatory Stations are also already provided with PLAY software specifically designed by PrimaLuceLab to simplify the use of all devices and capture pictures. By using PLAY you can align and point telescope to many targets of the included database, precisely focus camera and rotate it in order to frame your desired object, open or close the telescope motorised cap and dome, set camera acquisition settings and capture sequence of images, capture image calibration files for later post-processing and much more!
