DobsonDream8 GSO- Push-TO DSC upgrade kit for Dobson`s GSO DeLux telescopes.
Also, this kit is suitable for installation on similar Dobson telescopes of other brands – Orion Skyline, Astro-tech, Apertura, Bintel, Bresser, Omegon and Zhumell DeLux.
It contains everything necessary for the automation of GSO DeLux Dobson, Orion Skyline, Astro-tech, Apertura, Bintel, Bresser, Omegon and Zhumell DeLux telescopes. It only takes 10 minutes to install it. Simply tighten 8 pcs of screws and install the encoders. Now the telescope is ready for a fast search of space objects!
It helps observers to accurately and quickly find objects in the night sky.
In this case, the telescope tube is pointed to the object manually, until the crosshair in the planetarium program coincides with the desired object.
The controller receives data about the position of the telescope tube from sensors (encoders) located on the telescope mount axes.
The resolution of the encoders of each of the axes is 8000 pulses per revolution, which is quite enough to accurately point the telescope to the object.
Before using the system, you must enter the resolution of the encoders (8000 ppr) in the corresponding fields of the planetarium program.
DobsonDream can work with any planetarium program supporting work with basic encoders and DSC.
For example, for a PC with Windows, you can use the Cartes De Ciel planetarium, and for mobile devices with the Android or iOS SkySafari planetarium.
DobsonDream is made in two versions. Their difference in different communication interfaces, WiFi or Bluetooth.
In the standard kit, the DobsonDream controller contains a WiFi interface. If you need a bluetooth interface, write to us about it.
There are examples of settings for different planetarium programs in the instruction for the DobsonDream controller.
During observations, to balance the telescope pipe, twist the handle on the clutch, so that the friction in the clutch will compensate for the imbalance in the weight of the pipe.
