The Platypus 2 has all the features of the Seletek Armadillo plus network connection (ethernet) and a third peripheral port. It is the best controller to automate your observatory. The Platypus can manage up to 3 devices: focusers, camera rotators, filter wheels… up to 3 at the same time.

The Platypus can be accessed by local network and USB, with concurrent connections: one computer via network and other via local USB.

 Platypus has a whole range of possibilities …

  • It supports simultaneous connections: it can be monitored remotely while the observatory’s computer performs its focus tasks, etc … One computer can be connected by network and another by USB, or several by network.
  • controls all types of motors (VSI, Feather Touch, Robofocus, Moonlite, Lakeside …)
  • It allows controlling three devices simultaneously: one focuser and two filter-wheels, rotator and two wheels, telescope fans, autofocus motors (such as Robofocus, Moonlite or FeatherTouch and almost any other that is “stepper“), camera rotator, filter-wheel (with stepper motors, not USB wheels), or other devices.
  • Use Lunatico's free program PinByPin for independent control of any controller pin, manual or automated (depending on temperature delta), useful not only for fan control but also for dew heater bands, such as the ZeroDew system.
  • Rotator control
