Prism software

I'm new to Astrophotography and was looking for someway of controlling telescope and Observatory and found Prism . I found it easy to setup easy to use I can recommend this .

Great Telescope

Easy to put together and easy to use for a beginner. I had to use the included spacer to get my 1.25" eyepieces to focus properly in case you're having that issue.

powerful device

very reliable, strong, and dependable

PRISM software - the benefit of the full integration

I'm commission a site for serius observations and there are a lot of requirements and technologies to be harmonized and so many areas of post-processing that require dedicated software that you can really get lost. PRISM is open and allows full integration of any equipment in few mouse clicks with an impressive set of analysis and post-processing and automation tools that can drive efficiently you into a professional experience of the sky wonders.

Best Choice Around

Software is very well thought of and is packed with anything you would ever need.
The interface is gorgeous, it integrates well all the features.
Price is very convinient; I am very glad that Hyperion does not require a subscription fee, like others unfortunately do.
I don't give a 5 star because the pointing model for Alt/Az mounts is unavailble.
