Keep your eyes on the skies with the Eclipse Orchestrator Pro 3.7 Camera Control Software from DayStar Filters. This helpful program ensures that you don't miss the solar eclipse, the transit of Mercury or Venus, or any other big astronomical event because you were too focused on getting the settings and composition just right on your Canon or Nikon DSLR. It takes care of this work for you, freeing you up to enjoy the experience fully.

Using a USB or Firewire cable, connect your camera to a laptop running Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, or 10. Enter your latitude and longitude coordinates, or connect an NMEA 0183-compatible GPS, and the software will automatically determine the local conditions and make calculations based on them. The program was first developed for the 2002 total solar eclipse, and since then, has been used around the world.

Eclipse Orchestrator Pro features a script wizard that allows you to pre-program exposures, indicating when you would like each one to occur and which settings you would like selected for each. All actions of the camera can be timed to line up with specific phases of the event you're observing, so that all you need to do during the actual eclipse or transit is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. All features of Orchestrator Pro are optional, so you can use the program for as much or as little as you would like.

The software is delivered on a CD and shipped in a standard retail box, along with a USB installation memory stick and a license key.
