Download ACP 7.0 and ACP Planner 4.2
ACP 7.0 is current
Thanks for taking an interest in ACP Observatory Control Software. The ACP download is a full function kit, with a 60 day evaluation limit. Purchasing a license will remove the time limit.
ACP Planner is free, and will run without limitation.
Please note that ACP requires the latest free ASCOM Platform, as well MaxIm DL/CCD 5.2x, which is available for 30 day evaluation. You will also need the Guide Star Catalog 1.1, available at http://gsc.dc3.com/ (instructions for installing are in a read-me file at that location). ACP has a Guide Star Catalog installer that will assist in getting it configured in ACP and MaxIm DL. The catalog also comes on the CD-ROM you get when you purchase a license.
The kit is about 5MB in size, and requires Windows Installer (which is almost certainly already installed on your system). This version is compatible with TheSky X Professional (only) and TheSky 6 Professional (only) as well as Starry Night Pro. Please note that only the Professional versions of TheSky have the support needed for Planner integration.
If you are updating from a previous version of Planner, just run this installer. There's no need to uninstall your previous version.
All of our support (both pre-sales support and value-added customer support) is conducted at the DC-3 Dreams Communication Center. If you have purchased a license, you will automatically be registered as a customer at the Communication Center and given access to the value-added Customer Support sections. If you want pre-sales help, drop us a line and request a guest account, then log in to post to the Pre-Sales Help section.
Above all, HAVE FUN and join the ranks of those who have access to professional class control and automation for their observatories.
