Telescope Control

Products for telescope control
plus hardware/software design and consulting.


The Telescope Control group is a provider of electronic components designed specifically for the purpose of controlling a telescope. Currently we have over twenty years combined experience designing and manufacturing custom software and hardware for telescope control. We are bringing this experience to a product line targeted at the advanced amateur to professional observatory. A less expensive line of components will be available for use in amateur telescope control projects.

Planned Projects

Micro Step Stepper Motor Controller - Single Axis
This is a solution for stepper motor users who have problems with the vibrations generated by full and half step motor drivers. The unit will control both windings of a 4 or 6 wire stepper motor. Opto-isolated inputs include motor_enable, step and direction. Provisions for a panic switch are available. Power is attached to the board using a standard PC type power connector so simple PC power supplies may be used.
Price and availability TBD

Current Projects

We have forked a copy of the OCAAS observatory control program to our own CVS server. We are investigating the merit of further development of this famous package.
