AstroImager is a powerful, but easy to use image capture application for the astrophotography.
The built-in INDIGO drivers support the following hardware:
AstroImager is developed and tested with many of the cameras, wheels and focusers mentioned above. Nevertheless, even with the best effort we can’t test all models in all situations so please download a trial version and test it with your hardware before buy it! If it will not work, let us know, maybe we can still help you and fix it.
AstroImager also controls the set point cooling and the mechanical shutter of the attached camera (if available). It can preview or capture and save images to selected folder with any file name prefix, count, duration and time lapse, browse captured images and show them in Finder, zoom and stretch them automatically or manually. It can measure FWHM, HFD and the drift of a selected star to help easier and faster focus and align your equatorial telescope mount. Captured images can be plate-solved using public astrometry.net service or local Astrometry for OS X application.
Images are stored in FITS format with user defined keywords and can be debayered during preview. Sequences of images can be saved in various video formats including SER as well.
Even if it can be used separately, it is meant to be used together with AstroTelescope and AstroGuider. Application communicates over INDI/INDIGO protocol and it can be used to integrate with any INDI/INDIGO 3rd party application as well.
To run AstroDSLR you need Apple Mac running OS X El Capitan, macOS Sierra or later..
