Our Customers Say it Best
Prism was chosen to supply the data-streams for our astrophysics research with the multi-longitude Global Jet Watch observatories as it was the only commercial software capable of controlling our array of cameras. Our observations require at least 4 cameras running simultaneously with several others being available for other modes during a night.Pr. Katherine BlundellOxford University
"I highly recommend Prism 10 software to all that want to save time and money. This is the best and fastest software on the market for astrophotography and automation in my opinion and is very affordable. Download it and see for yourself .you will become amazed very quickly."David CollingsSparta, North Carolina
I highly recommend Prism to my fellow amateur astrophotographers and citizen scientists. It’s a very rare treat indeed to come across a software package that doesn’t require a whole host of 3rd party addon programs for you to accomplish your goals. From data acquisition, to analysis and processing, Prism really is a “one stop shop” for your software needs.Mike KeelerUSA
This is the most encompassing single software solution to everything astrophotography imaging I have encountered. Potential competitors in the world are very rare. No American software program or suite can come close to this product.Dr. Raymond MerrickJonesborough, TN
There are actual customers images captured and pre-processed in PRISM. Some of the post-processing was done in Photoshop
