PrimeTCS-Ui is the ultimate professional-class telescope controller designed for continuous night-after-night operation.  PrimeTCS-Ui includes such features as run-time correction of mount errors, support for axial encoder closed-loop feedback for sub-arcsecond tracking and pointing and comprehensive support for remote and automated operation (e.g. homing, fail-safe limits, safe shutdown).  Born from the experience of applying telescope control systems to numerous telescopes of all sizes and styles, PrimeTCS-Ui is unparalleled in capabilities and reliability.

Astrometric Instruments offers standardized telescope control systems for custom applications.  In 1995, we introduced our first telescope control system (TCS).  Since then, our systems have been installed on hundreds of telescopes worldwide.  Every system we have shipped from our 1st generation systems in 1995 to our current PrimeTCS systems can be updated to the most recent capabilities.

Choose Astrometric Instruments if you want products and solutions with longevity. Not many vendors provide decades of product function.
