PrimaLuceLab EAGLE3 control unit for telescopes and astrophotography
Forget having to connect your telescope to a laptop or desktop computer with lengthy cables, and big batteries. With the EAGLE3 you will spend less time setting up your equipment and more time imaging! In a single control unit you have a powerful Windows 10 Enterprise computer (faster and more stable than standard computers), quick SSD storage, an 8 port USB hub (4 high speed USB 3.0 ports plus 4 USB 2.0 ports that can be remotely turned on/off).
An advanced power distribution system for all of your imaging accessories with 7 power out ports (4 x 12V out plus 3x variable 0-12V ports for dew heaters control) and a special WiFi system to remotely control the telescope from any smartphone, tablet or external computer (including Mac). Everything is controlled via the included EAGLE Manager software and housed in a beautiful rigid aluminum case designed with our flexible PLUS mounting system, allowing you to perfectly connect the EAGLE to any telescope.
Thanks to the innovative design protected by international patent application and Italian utility model, you will no longer need need an uncomfortable laptop, large batteries and lengthy cables to control and power your telescope. The EAGLE is much more than a computer!
Digital astrophotography can be complicated: if you want to take the best photos of the night sky, you not only need a telescope, mount and a camera… You will also need a list of accessories like a guide camera, motorized focuser, and dew heaters, and they all need to be powered and controlled with the proper software. This can quickly turn any telescope into a complicated mess of tangled cables! EAGLE solves all the problems and make astrophotography easier and quicker!
PERFORMANCE COMPARISON WITH A MINIPC:
Not only EAGLE3 offers exclusive features for advanced astrophotography, but also all the power of a real computer (superior to a Mini PC) to allow you to use any astrophotography software. In order to test its performance, we used PCMark benchmark and compared EAGLE3/ EAGLE3 Q/ EAGLE3 S / EAGLE3 PRO with one of the many cheap Mini PCs on the market (where we installed the same EAGLE3 operative system for a precise results comparison). As you can see in the picture below, EAGLE3 offers 32% more performance than a common Mini PC with Intel Celeron N3160 processor, 4GB of RAM and SSD disk; EAGLE3 Q raises at +52%; EAGLE3 S still raises the gap by bringing this difference to 82%; EAGLE3 PRO boosts everything to a wonderful +130%!
