Abstract

Sequence Generator Pro works with most of the equipment you will find in observatories and at star parties frequented by amateur astro imagers. To start with a basic setup you will need a telescope on a GOTO mount, an imaging camera, a guiding system, and of course a computer to coordinate it all. To get even more out of SGP, add a motorized focuser. And to really optimize SGP, consider a flat screen panel, a rotator, a cell phone to wake you up when something goes wrong, and even a full observatory with a weather sensor to close the roof when the clouds come in. One major requirement is that any equipment that does not work with SGP native support should be ASCOM compatible, as nearly all amateur astro equipment is.
