Astrid Details and Ordering Page

Astrid is a Raspberry Pi-based, self-contained GPS-equipped astronomy imaging device with features that make it a complete, all-in-one device for recording and accurately timing occultation events. Using a tablet or laptop to connect to Astrid (via its wifi hotspot) the user can plate-solve, pre-point a telescope, control a computerized mount (if desired), schedule a recording, confirm in advance that the exposure and gain chosen are sufficient to record the target star, automatically record an event, and play back the recording.

Astrid will be sold through this page on the IOTA website completely assembled and tested. Pricing and availability are still being confirmed. An announcement will be made to the iotaoccultations list at when details are available.
