- Push-TO DSC upgrade kit for Celestron StarHopper Dobson telescopes.
It contains everything necessary for the automation
of Celestron StarHopper Dobson 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
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
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
Examples of settings for different planetarium programs you find in the instruction for the DobsonDream controller.
