If you want to use my software, you will need:
An astronomical CCD camera form the company SBIG ( SBIG ), a computer and a telescope or an objective.
After downloading a program, please tell me about your experiences with it. It may take some time to get familiar with drift scan imaging. I recommend to read my web page: drift scan imaging and the help files (and some of the web sides from the “Links ” page). You may have to do some research. You can not expect, that everything works “right out of the box”.
