DobsonDream 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. As encoders, any quadrature encoders with two TTL outputs and a power supply of 5 – 12V can be used.
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. Please, pick the correct edition while making a purchase.
In the complete set with unit DobsonDream there is a CD disk with the software.
