Software equivalent to Meades Audiostar?
      #6115887 - 10/03/13 07:00 PM

When I had my LX80 for a very brief time, I really enjoyed the audio commentary of the Audiostar controller. Now that I don't have one any more I am interested to know if there is a software or app equivalent. I think it would be neat for outreach and it is also really interesting to hear the details about objects I am looking at other than their name.

Thanks

If you have a Celestron mount, there is NexRemote.

If you do any imaging with a DSLR or CCD camera, Astro Photography Tool - APT has an object directory that is accompanied by a playable audio describing the object selected. And its also a great image acquisition software as well.
