LuSol-Guide (Made in France 🙂 ) is designed to be a simple and useful software to perform autoguiding on Sun for solar observing as well as solar photography during many hours. LuSol-Guide offers also the possibility to guide on Moon, and crescents (Sun eclipse, Moon crescents). It is developed for Windows 7/8.
Thanks to LuSol-Guide, no precise alignement is required to track the sun over a long observing or imaging session. For imaging use, particulary with h-alpha filters, LuSol-Guide simplifies the realization of long time lapse movies at the moment of the acquisition as well as post-processing.
A lot of cameras are supported and all mount compatible with ASCOM interface can be used. They are:
- all mount with ASCOM driver : tested on Vixen sphinx, Celestron Nexstar, Takahashi, Synta mount (HEQ5, EQ6…)
- all camera with Directshow/WDM driver : ZWO camera (tested with the famous ASI120), the Imaging source DMK/DBK cameras, qhy5l-ii (note a problem with the last driver of QHY!), standard webcams, Inova camera (tested with PLB-Mx only)…
Enjoy using this software and please feel free to contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org – with any feedback or suggestions that you wish to make !
What’s new in 1.3.2 ?
