We're also building AstroSwarm, a distributed observatory that anybody with a telescope can join. Each telescope that joins the network becomes a source of information for the rest of the network, making new kinds of astronomical observations possible.
We designed the Astrolab to be fully compatible with AstroSwarm, but not dependent on it. So you can get started today, knowing a world of new possibility awaits you tomorrow.See What Astrolab Does Today
