Chimera is a package to control astronomical observatories aiming the creation of remote and even autonomous observatories with just a few clicks. Using Chimera you can easily control telescopes, CCD cameras, focusers and domes in a very integrated way.
Support for most common off-the-shelf components. See supported devices.
Very easy to add support for new instruments (it’s Python code!).
To install chimera, you just have to download it at Chimera github page and install it by following the INSTALL document.
You can help Chimera development, we are always looking for contributors. If you don’t write code, no problem! You can write documentation, help with this site, marketing. Everyone can help!
