Westerlund Telescope control software


The telescope and instrument control software is ASCOM compliant, assuring flexibility and redundancy. Primary telescope and dome control is executed by Autoslew, with MaxIm DL/CCD and TheSky 6 allowing telescope and instrument control. Currently, primary operation is carried out from both Autoslew and MaxIm, with TheSky allowing planetarium-style control.
