I’ve been using Voyager for over half a year now, and I am just amazed by how flexible and dependable it has been.
I am primarily a back yard imager who puts my telescope outside for several days at a time to image one or two targets. Thanks to good weather a couple of weeks ago, I completed a narrowband imaging run on two targets for seven days straight. Due to obstacles in my back yard, I shot target #1 until about 1 AM and then shot target #2 until the end of astronomical night. On most of those nights, I would start the DragScript before dusk and do other things (like spend time with my family ). Night after night, Voyager waited until dark, centered on the target, focused, calibrated, changed targets at the right time, and kept going until dawn. I always awoke to find lots of high quality data on my SSD. Given all of the complexities of astrophotography, this degree of reliability blows my mind.
I am grateful to Leo for continuing to develop the program and for being responsive to user requests. I have come to appreciate the artificial intelligence he has build into the program and have learned to “trust” Voyager about many things. Recent additions to the program, such as the image viewer and native ASI camera driver with per-event gain control, really make for a top-notch experience.
