AstroGuider

AstroGuider is a simple to use guiding application for your telescope mount. It can be calibrated semi-automatically or manually, you do not need to take care about camera orientation or pixel scale.

The built-in drivers support the following hardware:

  • ATIK CCDs,
  • Starlight Xpress CCDs,
  • ZWO ASI USB 3.0 CCDs,
  • any mount controlled over camera ST4 port or
  • any mount controlled over CGUSB ST4,
but it can be used as a client to EQMac or any remote or local INDI or INDIGO server with any supported CCD or telescope mount as well.

Application is integrated with AstroImager (it can initiate random kick to allow dithering) and AstroTelescope (guiding is automatically stopped, if telescope is slewed or parked). Applications communicates over INDI protocol and it can be used to integrate with any INDI 3rd party application as well.

AstroGuider has all camera controls known from AstroImager (image zoom, subframe selection or manual and automatic black and white point setting).

To run AstroGuider you need Apple Mac running OS X 10.9 or later.
