windows default iconScopeDriver for Windows Publisher's description

ScopeDriver lets you connect your computer to your astronomical telescope.

ScopeDriver lets you connect your computer to your astronomical telescope.

A computer-telescope connection adds many features to your telescope, harnessing the greater power of your computer to control your instrument. You can control your telescope from the comfort of indoors, or even across the Internet. You can also plan your observing in advance, on your computer, then instruct your telescope to take you on a tour of these objects, and log your observations from within the ScopeDriver package.

ScopeDriver can also control a camera via a serial shutter control, completely automating observing patrols and sky surveys.

If you’re new to astronomy (and even if you’re not), you can use Observing Lists created by talented people that take you on tours of interesting stars and deep sky objects. Move from one fascinating object to another, and read about them on your computer screen as you observe.
