At InFINNity Deck various pieces of software are being used to control the equipment and collect data. Most of these package are either free-ware or have been bought from other parties:

Among the Free-ware packages are:
  • AutoStakkert
  • FireCapture
  • Stellarium
  • Cartes du Ciel
  • MountWizzard3
  • jAmaSeis
The non-free software packages include:
  • Astro Pixel Processor (APP)
  • Sequence Generator Pro (SGP)
  • LesveDome
But as I could not arrange everything I needed with these packages, and being a programmer since 1984, I decided to create some tools myself and share them with the astronomical community. The tools are written in Java, PHP, VB (C#, .NET), the latter concern the ASCOM drivers which can be used in packages like Sequence Generator Pro (SGP):

If you have any questions and/or remarks please let me know.
