The DFM Engineering Telescope Control System (TCS), provides a user-friendly interface
to the telescope.
Utilizing an IBM compatible computer with multiple displays and a keyboard, you have continual position
display, status reporting, and an easy-to-use, menu-driven command set.
Our pointing model corrects for precession, nutation, aberration, atmospheric refraction, mount misalignments
Typically, the DFM Engineering TCS and pointing model will achieve 10 to 20 arc- second blind pointing
to a 60°
Computer operation is simple. A total of 28 commands are divided into four submenus: initialization, movement,
rates and miscellaneous.
All commands are available to your external computer, allowing you to create your own custom user interface.
And the TCS becomes a peripheral to your computer system, allowing integration with your own observing
