Hristo Pavlov

IOTA

A new Windows software for recording video occultations will be presented. The focus will be on a new file format that has been developed specifically to improve the recording with integrating analogue video cameras. OccuRec is ASCOM-enabled allowing the automatic focusing and tracking of the target in fully unattended mode as well as the control of ACOM Video devices.

OccuRec also allows a time-stamping of video using NTP time base via the Internet. The accuracy, pros and cons of this timing method will be also discussed.
