ADPA means “Advanced Digital Processing for Astronomy”. ADPA is a collection of multi-platform applications dedicated to Astronomy.
ADPA suite’s programs are supported by Windows, Linux and Macintosh.
ADPA suite’s first software project is HSPI, an astronomical picture capturer and editor. HSPI uses the most advanced tecniques for these purposes. HSPI permits capturing images from different sources simultaneously, connecting the computer on wich it runs to phisically connected CCD cameras or on remote cameras using an internet or LAN connection. HSPI permits saving images sequences from these sources independently from each connected camera also, and permits real-time or postponed editing.
You can also connect a mount togethere with each connected camera, this means that you can have complete cotrol on more telescopes on which you’re connected from a single interface, and this function is powered by the offline plate solver: you can recognize the observed image and correct the mount’s coordinates for a precise GoTo pointing.
HSPI contains an alignment, rotation, scaling function also for tilted, traslated or scaled images.
ADPA suite offers also hardware projects aimed for astronomy.
GT1 Motor Controller
The GT1 is a mount stepper motor controller which is very portable and configurable. It can drive any type of mount, in terms of gear ratio and maximum speed. It is SynScan handset compatible and can also be controlled by EQMod.
Its high compatibility level permits its usage in custom mounts, reaching sub-arcsecond precision and cross-platform usage.
The GT1 has the capability of setting maximum speed and acceleration. It can reach 128x microsteps resolution and can drive up to 1A stepper motors.
We know the needs of any astronomy amateur, and we offer the best solutions we can find, to promote the Astronomy knowledge and interest.
