Control Applications for Astronomical CCD Cameras
Collection of embedded softwares to control a telescope mount.
EQ Track purpose is to provide amateur telescope makers (ATM) with electronic board schematics and embedded software to control their telescope mount via stepping motors. EQ Track comes in different "flavors" : - "Basic" controls the right ascension and declination motors of an equatorial mount. - "Go To" controls the motors of a mount in any orientation (ie. equatorial, altazimuth, alt-alt), to point and track equatorial coordinates.
This library aims at maximum performance for the computation of the geocentric positions of planets, Sun and Moon. It is written completely in assembly language and works with binary files for the perturbations.
