New forum for Sky simulator for ASCOM

Post by han.k » 21 Feb 2020, 20:18

This forum is now linked from https://sourceforge.net/projects/sky-simulator/

Sky simulator for ASCOM using online DSS images or an artificial sky. The camera simulator will show a "deep sky survey" or artificial image based on the mount and focuser position. The image will be blurred/defocused based on the focuser position.

In your image aquisition program like CCDCiel/NINA/APT/SGP you should select the ASCOM camera "Sky Simulator" and the mount "Telescope Simulator for .NET". The sky simulator program will download the images and feed the camera simulator with these.

The image location in the "Sky Simulator" program and camera simulator should be the same documents\image.jpg.

With this simulator you can test focuser routine, centering using plate solving, do demonstrations and test sequences.

Magn 14 star database & 30000 object deepsky database are included.
