Lunático Astronomía now offers the Dragonfly, a remote observatory control box (450 €). The unit works in conjunction with a smartphone app, Dragonfly Observatory Controller (available for both Apple and Android devices), to remotely monitor and control multiple switches in an observatory. Dragonfly is well-shielded from electronic noise and can be used to initialize the power on telescopes, cameras, and mounts, as well as monitor the roof position in your facility. The controller is ASCOM-compliant and manages 8 control relays (4 double NO/NC and 4 NO) and also includes 8 overload-protected input sensors. It connects directly to the internet via an Ethernet port and can be powered using 12-to-24V DC. Each purchase includes 16 banana plugs. See the manufacturer’s website for a list of international dealers.
