Some of the Features of Satellite Tracker
Great Support for Meade Autostar Telescopes! Track via the RS232 interface or create Custom TLE file to upload to the Autostar object database!
Improved smooth continuous tracking suitable for AstroVideography for the Meade LX200!
Below are just some of the many features of the Satellite Tracker:
Map your entire Viewing Plan. Just click on the next object you wish to track.
An integrated LX200 Control Dialog is now included with version 2.0.1 and higher!
Night Vision mode reduces the brightness of the computer screen so that the
user's eyes stay adjusted to the darkness of the night.
A joystick can be used to adjust the timing
and alignment settings. This allows the user to make adjustments while viewing the object.
Another utility to aid in setting the timing. The timing adjustment is automatically
changed in timed intervals allowing the user to simply press the space bar when
the optimum timing is achieved.
Probably, the best new feature found in v1.1.8 is the ability to predict
satellite passes for an entire TLE file in a single click. The results can
automatically be transferred to the Viewing Plan.
The improved Viewing Plan dialog
shows the current elevation and direction of visible objects. This method eliminates
the need to constantly refresh (and re-calculate) the object list and pick new objects to view. The user
also knows ahead of time what object will be coming into view by scrolling
through the Viewing Plan.
A satellite information database provides interesting facts about many objects.
