N.I.N.A - Nighttime-Imaging 'N' Astronomy

Any Australian users having a play with N.I.N.A?


fantastic product that is open source and simplifies the imaging process for all levels of users.

For a youtube run through of the product goto
  • Full integrated allSky plate solver
  • Raw native camera drivers
  • ZWO, Altair , ASI, QHY native.
    Offline Sky / Image planning tool incorporating a Color SkyMap.

Take a look.

Hi Stafan been playing with N.I.N.A for about 6 months it is a great program ,and the other thing i like about it, if you have any problem with the program you will get a answer within hours instead of days ( some times I wonder when they sleep)

I'm keen to give NINA a go soon - I've been Sequence Generator Pro for over 12 months and overall quite happy with it, but for mono imaging with very fast camera lenses (135mm F2) the exposure times are very short, and I understand that NINA's interframe delay is much shorter than SGP's leading to greater efficiency.

I can't get the plate solving to work no matter what I do, their support hasn't been able to resolve.

I tried to find out unsuccessfully if this does automated focusing? Can someone confirm?

Only runs on Windows which makes it a no-go for me as I have a RPI which I use to remotely control my rig.
