MaxIm DL: The Gold Standard

MaxIm DL is the fastest and easiest way to image the night sky. Whether you want to produce stunning portraits, collect science data, or hunt for new objects, MaxIm DL has the tools you need.

Version 5 adds a host of new capabilities, to make imaging and processing faster and easier than ever before possible.

Key Benefits

  • Complete observatory integration. Controls your camera, autoguider, filter wheels, focusers, camera rotator, telescope mount, and dome. ASCOM compliant.
  • Built-in mini-planetarium with AllSky and Zoom view helps you maintain "situational awareness":
    • See a whole sky overview, with the telescope position overlaid.
    • Zoom in on your target, with field-of-view of the camera superimposed.
    • Greatly enhanced object database and powerful search capabilites.
    • Instantly overlay images from the camera to help you identify targets.
    • Graphically control image plane rotator.
  • Redesigned camera controls for faster and easier imaging. Create your own presets for finding, centering, focusing, and LRGB sequences.
  • Multiple autodark buffers allow you to quickly switch between presets without reshooting darks.
  • Quickly change program configurations. If you use multiple camera/telescope setups, you can instantly reconfigure all software settings in just a few clicks.

  • Stack images much faster and easier:
    • Automatically identify stack groups by object ID and color filter - no more sorting through image files!
    • Automatically reject poor quality images based on criteria you choose.
    • Calibrate and/or color convert images on-the-fly during stacking.
    • Align images using a variety of automatic and manual alignment technqiues.
    • Color combines RGB and LRGB image sets, using a single alignment reference image.
    • Works from disk to save precious RAM.
    • Stack multiple images with hundreds of individual subexposures, just drop in a folder and click Go!
  • Includes a complete image processing toolkit, including a large variety of filters, deblooming, curves, deconvolution, color tools, and much more.

MaxPointTM : Telescope Mount Modelling Software

A frequent problem with GOTO telescopes is that they retain pointing accuracy only over a small area of the sky where you're working. Various mechanical errors conspire to degrade the accuracy as you travel away from the initial "sync" position. As a result, your intended target is often entirely out of the field of view of your CCD camera. Whole Sky Pointing Accuracy

MaxPointTM is designed to solve this problem through mount modelling. When you first set up MaxPoint, it creates a model of your telescope mount, including any polar axis misalignment, offsets, and mechanical flexure. Once this is done, MaxPoint automatically corrects your telescope position to ensure it is always on-target. With MaxPoint, even very low-cost GOTO mounts can routinely achieve a pointing accuracy of 1-2 arc-minutes over the whole sky!

MaxPoint works with any ASCOM-compliant telescope control program such as MaxIm DL and Starry Night Pro Plus 6.

The telescope model is easily generated using one of two methods. The first is to manually make a series of observations. Simply double-click on a reference star on the sky map. After MaxPoint slews to the star, center it in the telescope and click "+" to add the observation. Repeat this for a number of stars across the sky, and you're done!

If you have MaxIm DL, this process can be completely automated. MaxPoint slews the telescope to a series of points across the sky, takes images using MaxIm DL, and then automatically calculates the pointing offset using the included PinPoint LE measuring engine. Just sit back and watch!

Once a model has been defined, MaxPoint lets you see exactly what the errors in your telescope mount are, including a direct measurement of your polar alignment error.

Like all CyanogenTM imaging products, MaxPoint includes a complete ASCOM-Compliant scripting interface, so you can quickly and easily integrate it with your own programs or scripts.
