OT: CCD-Guide 2020 / Planning tool for astrophotographers
« on: January 18, 2020, 05:32:26 pm »
Hello astrophotographers,

Every year the CCD-Guide team publishes a new DVD, which assists astrophotographers in planning their imaging projects. Besides a huge number of reference images CCD-Guide contains a software to find images, to view images and to obtain all necessary data. The newest release contains more than 4,500 images of 53 astrophotographers.

A special highlight of CCD Guide 2020 are the very powerful ObjectTools, which were developed by Hartmut Bornemann: The ObjectTracker answers the question when an object can best be observed. ObjectMarker allows the plate solve and labeling of astrophotos with the object names from the CCD-Guide object database. The ObjectViewer supports the analysis of an image including research in internet object databases.

More information about CCD-Guide including extensive video tutorials and an order possibility can be found here:

It is important to mention that the CCD-Guide team members work voluntary and all income is used exclusively to cover production costs or to support projects of our astronomy club Astronomischer Arbeitskreis Salzkammergut.

Have fun with the new CCD-Guide 2020!

Greetings from
Bernhard Hubl & CCD-Guide team
