Acquisition Software NINA

Hi All,

If you can't afford SGPro as your automated acquisition software there is a new contender on the block known as NINA.

It has a simplistic setup and a very extensive manual which wasn't needed to get it going.
The best part it is free and has nightly builds if you are into beta's.
It has some very nice features simple mosaicing and target selection with goto / plate solving. It is a fully automated program.

I can't claim that it is an absolute direct competitor to SGPro, but it looks promising and isn't far behind definitely worth looking at.

Unfortunately it's currently missing dome control, otherwise that looks good.

This is the one I'm going to try once my gear is setup again: https://software.starkeeper.it/index.php/voyager/ - not free/open source, but it is being actively developed and looks to have some great automation features.

Very Interesting indeed, I must look into this one.

At 69EURO puts it in line for me slightly cheaper then SGPro.
Great find.
