The OpenGimbal Project is an ongoing effort to design an easy to build, wi-fi, automated telescope control system with online networking features, for use with tablets and laptops, or remotely via an internet connection.

Advantages include:  No bending over, no squinting, no bumping it, since you dont touch it. It’s built to be affordable, easy to use, stylish, portable, science capable, and also… imagination inspiring . 

It works with our custom suite of mobile apps or through a standard web-browser. Developers can access the device via VNC or SSH. Equipped with automated observation tools including: astronomical object search and detection, automated gridded mapping, object tracking and, someday, voice command!
