Guidemaster: a universal Webcam Autoguiding tool for fine astrophotographs.
Guidemaster is now online in
Since long time I tried to take simply good astronomical pictures. To me, one of the most important characteristics of a good astronomical picture is _sharp stars_.
I have one SC-1 modified Webcam, which I use for Guiding my telescope. Unfortunately I could not find any software which is fulfilling my requirements on accuracy and easy-to-use. At the Nuernberger observatory there is a SBIG CCD camera and related software, with which you can guide simply and well.
Unfortunately I didn´t find software with similar perfomances for my Webcam, therefore I wrote this program.
After so many programming hours I was satisfied with the software, though I would like to make this software accessible also for other star friends.
I would be very pleased for any feedback about what works fine and, above all, what can still be improved.
Much fun with the software and I hope you can take many beautiful astro-pictures with GUIDEMASTER.
