EAGLE S has been recognized as Hot Product 2017 by the famous american astronomy magazine Sky&Telescope!
Primaluce Lab's EAGLE S, thanks toits i3 2,1 GHz Dual Core processor, more storage space (128GB SSD) and the increased number of USB ports (6 in total including 4 USB3.0) is the enhanced version of EAGLE. It's the ideal solution for several astrophotography advanced applications (such as imaging automation with telescopes) or for high resolution planetary photography. EAGLE S is designed to be installed IN the telescope, it powers devices and it allows you to remotely control the entire telescope in a simple and smart way.
Technical comment by Filippo: "EAGLE S is the more powerful version of EAGLE and has been designed to combine the innovation of EAGLE system to more computing power: I recommend it to anyone who wants to automate astrophotography sessions (using appropriate software), to those who want to make hi-res planetary and Moon photography with appropriate USB 3.0 cameras (so they can record high fps video in the bigger SSD drive) or to anyone who wants to use software that require high computing capacity (such as planetarium software with 3D interface)."
Like EAGLE, EAGLE S is an all-in-one system that integrates a computer running Windows 10 Enterprise (more stable and compact version than normal computers), a power bridge to manage all the connected devices, a WiFi system to remote wireless control, all that in a special aluminum case PLUS compatible that can be connected in various ways to your telescope, always with maximum rigidity. But it adds:
- More power: 2.1 GHz i3 dual core processor and 8 GB RAM memory
- More space: 120 GB SSD drive
Several applications in astrophotography require high computing power. For example if you want to use astrophotography automation softwares (for example with plate solving that, analyzing an astrophotography, delivers accurately coordinates, angle of rotation and image scaling) or if you want to make high-res planetary imaging (using specialized cameras that download to your computer a video composed of many images per second), higher computing power is definitely recommended.
EAGLE S has a more powerful processor, a bigger SSD drive and 6 USB ports (4 of which are USB 3.0). This way you will have all the power you need, all with the ease of use and innovation of the EAGLE system that allows you not only to remotely control all of your instruments but also to power them!
EAGLE S has four 12V power out ports to connect up to four instruments that can be powered directly without needing additional cables or power supplies. Like EAGLE OBSERVATORY, two power outputs have 8 Amps each protection fuse while the other two ports have 3 Amps protection fuse.
Comparison of EAGLE, EAGLE S and EAGLE OBSERVATORY with all the main specifications and the type of use they are recommended for:
CONNECTION AND POWER CABLES In order to make the EAGLE system more efficient, we have made special power cables for different mounts or CCD cameras. The Eagle-compatible power cables present on one side of instrument power jack (for 12V power). On the other side they have the plug with Eagle screw in order to prevent being disconnected accidentally from the Eagle. We also provide certified USB cables with various lengths to customize your system according to the imaging and guide telescope you want to use . If the cable for your equipment is not present among the optional accessories, contact us and we will make it for you. Eagle is also the perfect system to connect the SkyWatcher SynScan computerized mounts directly to EAGLE using the EQMOD compatible cables and therefore bypassing the SynScan handpad (EAGLE, using a special software, directly controls the mount without the handpad). Then we offer EQMOD USB cables that allow you to connect Skywatcher AZ-EQ6, N-EQ6, HEQ5 and EQ5 SynScan SynScan to one of the USB ports of EAGLE.
