manufactured by
The Imaging Source

Many thanks for your interest in AstroTracker!

AstroTracker is a software program written specifically for the DMK range of astronomy cameras from The Imaging Source. It has been designed to overcome several of the problems associated with taking pictures through a telescope.

Version 3.1 has just been released: It features better video management and tidier layout.  It works on both monochrome and colour versions of the DMK camera!

The following are just some of the features in AstroTracker.
  • Dramatically increases exposure capabilities of your camera
  • Virtually eliminates vibration and motorised slips

This is a picture of the Great Orion Nebula taken using the AstroTracker software.  It was taken using a monochrome 640x480 DMK camera on a Meade ETX-125 PE telescope.  Red, Green, Blue and Oxygen III filters were used.  From start to finish the setup, imaging and putting away took fourty minutes.

This image of Comet Lulin was taken on a particularly windy night and has an effective exposure of 20 seconds, but notice that the stars are crisp and clear with no blurring, thanks to AstroTracker.  Although the comet was moving, AstroTracker tracked the stars, meaning they were crisp and sharp.

On a night of not particularly good seeing I managed to snap this image of Messier 66 (also known as NGC 3627). It's worth noting that this galaxy doesn't have much in the way of detail, even on professional photographs (just try digging around on Wikipedia for example). However, if you look really carefully, you can see the spiral arms of the galaxy.
