Detailed Description

The sky6DirectGuide object.

The sky6DirectGuide object allows external programs to move the Paramount in precise, small increments. This can be used for autoguiding or a less common application is for calibrating the Paramount on a terriestial (azimuth, altitude) beacon.

DirectGuide, innovated by Software Bisque, was the first technology of its kind to allow autoguiding without the need of a relay cable between camera to mount. Click here for more information.
