Automatic object search
The SynScan Tour driver allows you to instantly locate objects in the sky. All you need to do is enter the name or catalog number of the object and the controller will point the telescope in the direction of the blue body in a few seconds.
Starry Sky Guide
Thanks to this function, a list of the most interesting objects visible at a given moment and place in the sky is displayed. The beginner observer can quickly and easily learn the most fascinating objects visible at the moment above the horizon
SynScan Tour has a built-in database of over 58 thousand objects. The database contains not only the coordinates of objects but also basic information about them. The information is presented in the form of text as well as can be played as audio files. Photographs can be displayed for many objects.
The controller allows you to control telescopes on parallax and azimuthal mountings. We have a number of different driving modes to choose from. The interface is structured in a friendly and clear way, allowing you to move from object to object instantly.
The controller has been equipped with an infrared sensor. This sensor allows you to automatically switch off the device if it is not used for a long time. It is possible to enter a text message visible after restarting the driver (for other people operating the device).
SynScan Tour is equipped with a serial port, MiniUSB socket and headphone jack. The serial port is used for connection with a telescope and a GPS module. The mini USB socket allows you to connect to a computer, the headphone jack allows you to listen to the sound information contained in the controller.
The SynScan Tour driver has been equipped with a number of additional functions. The most interesting include the function of playing music and video files. It is also possible to record the sound, just like in the recorder.
