Introduction to RoboClip
What is RoboClip
RoboClip is a facility manager for import, editing, storage, retrieve and sharing of data related to the user targets.
Targets Data are made of RA J2000,DEC J2000,Target Name, Position Angle, Group and Note memo text. All the field are completly editable from users.
You can store inside RoboClip all the targets you want getting coord data and name optionally from Internet, connected planetarium or from Sesame online research tool (governative online database structures) or just simpy editing it by hand.
This data will be stored in a database placed in the Documents/Voyager/Data folder and will not be affected by new Voyager installations or upgrade.
So you can create your personal catalog of interest targets to shot during your activities directly in Voyager without passing for a planetarium and/or without having one.
Form release 2.2.6 of Voyager and 1.0.12 of Web Dashboard is now possible to create modify and use a powerful mosaic tool.
