The new hardware addresses some network problems, found mostly at shared observatories with a lot of network activity, and improved relay protection in case of power supply noise.

Dragonfly, the device from Lunático to remotely control your observatory, even from your mobile device!

Top 6 reasons to get a Dragonfly:

    1. Smart: can perform operations by itself (for example, send you an email or push message, reboot the router if no internet, WOL, etc...)
  1. Smartphones support: custom control app
  2. Universal: with ZeroConf, access it from anywhere - no configuration required
  3. Versatile: roof open and close operations can be customized. Actions can be launched when a sensor or relay changes.
  4. Secure: password protection available (3 levels)
  5. Supported: complete ASCOM and INDIGO roof and switch drivers. INDIlib drivers coming soon.

With the Dragonfly you can:

  • switch on and off lights and equipment
  • open and close the observatory roof
  • control 8 relays (4 of them double NO/NC, and 4 NO)
  • monitor the AAG Cloudwatcher and check for safe or unsafe weather conditions
  • monitor, using magnet or mechanical sensors the mount's position, the status of the roof...
  • ZeroConfiguration network system
  • ASCOM switch & dome interfaces
  • Improved internal web server:
    • simple page to manage the relays and sensors,
    • javascript for web page integration
