PLAY is the all-in-one astrophotography software developed by PrimaLuceLab in order to record beautiful pictures of the night sky in the simpler way and with the telescope, mount and camera you prefer! PLAY includes all the best features needed for astrophotography like auto focus, auto guide, mount control and alignment, camera rotation and field de-rotation, sequence acquisition, live stacking and much more! PLAY allows you to configurate your telescope by selecting OTA and mount type and by connecting to any camera, autoguider, mount, and filter wheel that is provided with ASCOM drivers (tested with ASCOM platform 6.4 and later). In order to use PLAY you have to have at least ESATTO focuser or SESTO SENSO 2 focusing motor and it natively supports ARCO rotator and ECCO environmental module! And if you install PLAY in the EAGLE computer, it automatically adds more advanced features! The first release of PLAY will be available starting October 2021 and we will progressively add more and more features. PLAY is free!

PLAY is the software for Windows 10 and EAGLE computers that PrimaLuceLab developed in order to provide the easiest solution for advanced astrophotography with telescope, camera and other accessories you want to use in your setup. PLAY is not a replacement for great automation astrophotography softwares like Sequence Generator Pro, NINA, Voyager, MaximDL, Prism and others that provide the most advanced features but that are designed for experts and have a steep learning curve. PLAY is the straightforward way for advanced astrophotography allowing you to record great pictures of galaxies, nebulas, star clusters, planets, Moon and Sun without complexity!
Instead of requiring you to use many different softwares to control all your devices or a complicated software to make it all work together, PLAY offers an easy to use interface that simplify the capture process of astrophotography images. PLAY offers advanced features like focus control (autofocus available in one of the next releases), mount alignment, target preview and pointing (plate solving available in one of the next releases), camera rotation, sequence acquisition, live stacking and much more!
Not only PLAY allows you to control EQ mounts through their ASCOM driver but it also automates Alt-Az deep-sky astrophotography by taking control of selected Alt-Az mounts (actually tested with SkyWatcher AZ-EQ5 and AZ-EQ6) and using ARCO rotator as high resolution field de-rotator! This opens new possibilities in deep-sky objects astrophotography since an Alt-Az mount doesn’t require polar alignment, is not limited by the meridian flip and allows to install multiple parallel telescopes and removing counterweights!
