Star maps in AstroTelescope can be displayed at any scale and rotated by any angle, with selectable star-density, and with or without star names. Hipparcos Catalogue and selected NGC and IC DSO objects are available from the application locally, but any object can be searched online by calling up the public SIMBAD service on Strasbourg Astronomical Data Center.
The application can control a connected mount both by selecting an object on the star map or manually; mount position can be synced automatically from a solved image in AstroImager. Its built-in driver supports Meade LX and Celestron NexStar protocols both over serial line and TCP/IP (direct support for Synta/Celestron coming soon). The application can be used as a client to any remote or local INDI server with any supported telescope mount, and it can also control EQMac application over TCP/IP connection and LX protocol.
