Panchangam means 'Five Limbs', deals with the five divisions of time. An 'auspicious' moment (Muhurtha) is considered very important, for starting a ceremony. This project is to develop software to produce panchangam to a place.
Software platform for the control of astronomical instruments.
astroDevice is a software platform for the control of astronomical instruments (telescope mount, filter wheel, focuser and CCD) through a single interface. This platform manages any astronomical device through plug-ins. It can manage multiple devices of same type (eg two telescope mounts). astroDevice is an alternative to ASCOM and INDI by providing a common interface between each device type and astronomy software such as Starry Night, KStars, Skychart and Stellarium. The platform is based on a client-server architecture to provide the ability to control the astronomical devices remotely.
