Voyager: Reliable Automated Astro Imaging
You sleep while Voyager does the work!
You can't add reliability to an unstable platform. You have to design it in from the start.
Built-in Integration for one of the widest selections of third party software and hardware in any imaging automation tool
Your images, taken your way. Easily customize your night's automation with a drag and drop sequencing tool.
“I used to babysit my equipment to ensure that I would have usable data in the morning. Since switching to Voyager, I image with the confidence that I will get good data every time. And I’m getting more sleep”
“Voyager’s multiple scope server/client capabilities have allowed us to control our 4-scope widefield array (four telescopes on one mount) by synchronizing target acquisition, autofocus and image acquisition. Without this automation we would have been required to manually control all four telescopes throughout every imaging session.”
“I think I’m in love. Last night was the very first time I used Voyager. I don’t generally review something after the first use, but just have to share my experience. I spent a few hours in the last few days configuring my gear, setting up a sequence and familiarizing myself with the software. At first I was reluctant to try a new capture program, but I kept hearing how reliable and user friendly Voyager was. The comprehensive Wiki and a few questions to the community was all it took to get me started. I configured Voyager so that it would control everything including camera, mount, platesolving, planetarium, guiding and autofocus. I clicked connect, and all my gear connected and the guiding and planetarium software opened. I ran the V-Curve Focus Wizard (required only the first time out), then went to the sequence and pressed the play button. Within minutes my mount slewed and centered, guiding started, scope focused and subs started rolling in. I was literally astounded with how easy it was! Plus, the newly released Fits Viewer is absolutely amazing. I spent the next two hours watching as filters changed, focus routines executed, and data piled up. I could not be happier and can’t wait to see what Leo and Rowland do next!”
“Last night was my first serious imaging in what seems like forever. It was my first night testing a DragScript with two targets as well. Despite the short summer night, I was able to image most of the night and get a better understanding of DragScript and sequences in Voyager. When I checked this morning, I got all the subs I was expecting and best of all they were all in great focus! DragScript is really awesome in that you can customize almost anything you like. I think the reliability and stability of Voyager will save me countless hours of sleep. This summer, despite the short nights, should be a lot of fun with Voyager running the show. Leo has certainly done something quite remarkable with this program.”
“I have tried many automation software products before and I rarely managed a complete session without problems, also because of the complexity of my setup (ActiveOptics and camera rotator especially). For me Voyager was a great revolution, both when I work in a fixed location and when I carry my setup around. The result is always the same: good quality files and complete sequences. I believe that Voyager has its strength in reliability, but I have seen it grow from the first versions in an impressive way: to only speak of reliability is in my opinion an understatement. This software is powerful, solid, and also cool. Thanks to Voyager I got my first APOD with over 22 hours of shooting on M27 (Narrowband file was taken with single 1800″ each sub exposure in 4 nights).”
“In my personal quest to gather high quality photographs of all of the 2300+ DSO’s visible from my remote dark site within my lifetime, I have a total of 8 C14’s and 5 C11’s all of which gather images every night from sundown to sunup that the weather cooperates, moving from target to target like a swarm of “sky-roomba’s”. These telescopes have to run remotely without fail, day after day and the software controlling them has to be absolutely rock solid reliable as well as give me the flexibility to control all of the actions a remote telescope needs to be able to take. For me cost is not really a factor but reliability and flexibility are paramount and Voyager delivers that in spades. I have worked with literally every other package out there, ranging from freeware to costing hundreds, and Voyager continues to exceed my expectations at every turn. The support is superb, the developer has several times added features to the program that I’m quite certain I’m the only one who uses and Voyager remains my go-to control package … If you’re playing around in the backyard then many other packages will mostly work, but if it absolutely positively has to work 24/7/365 then Voyager is your only option.”
