I’ve written a Windows program for use with my digital setting circles interface project. It ONLY works with my interface, due to its use of the special protocol I wrote. Here’s a screen shot:
This software does three things:
- steps you through the two-star alignment process;
- displays the direction your telescope is pointing; and
- allows you to find objects for which you enter the celestial coordinates. You can also select the object from a list of deep sky objects.
It includes a help file which should answer any questions you have about its use.
If you find problems with this software, please leave a comment below to tell me about it, so I can fix it.
