GuideDog version 1.0.6 has been released. New features include: Visual feedback of scope movement, double crosshair to help in camera orientation, Autostar guiding commands now issued with 4 digits (Mgd####), minor bug fixes.
GuideDog version 1.0.5 has been released. New features include: logging of RA/Dec errors to a file, a new aggressiveness slider to fine tune guiding corrections, and support for Meade's new Autostar guiding commands.
I've just released the initial version (1.0.0) of DSLRControl. This software was suggested by Etienne Bonduelle and allows for automating exposure sequences with a Canon DSLR, while controlling a scope through a CCD guider port, and controlling a LX-modified camera...all on the same parallel port!
Welcome to barkoSoftware.com, the new website and location for GuideDog
The new site supports a Discussion area where users can share information/tips on using GuideDog. Hopefully this will be more friendly than the typical Yahoo group, and of course won't include the irritating advertisements.

Adds support for parallel port based relay boxes
Ability to enter separate guide rates for RA and Dec
