GNS, the only true solution to be able to sleep. Your smartphone supervises the observatory from outside and wakes you up in case of problems.
GNS is integrated with the main automation programs.
Native support in:
Easy support in:
- Prism (in the meantime the official support is launched, check the free utility) check the Niklas Stork free utility).
- AAG CloudWatcher
- Voyager Astro
… and checks tasks such as opening the dome or roof, cooling the CCD, etc…
Let’s see how it works:
First of all, there’s a small PC software program to be installed in your observatory control computer; this program knows nothing about astronomy, ASCOM, CCDs, etc., think of it as a dumb assistant. It will just count down, and tell the smartphone app how things are going.
From our CCD control program, or automation software, or whatever we are using, we’ll keep the PC software up to date of how things are going, allotting time for each task. This is automatically done by CCD AutoPilot 5, Sequence Generator Pro, and Maxpilote; other programs require the user to work a little bit (detailed instructions for integration with CCDCommander and ACP are included in the user’s manual.
With the GNS you can go to sleep with confidence 🙂
