Remote Telescope System (RTS2) is an integrated system for remote observatory control. It is designed to keep an observatory running, protect it from elements, take images, ensure that pointing is good, react to TOOs, keep track of what was done, send you data, and help you to do science. It picks targets from a database table, stores image meta-data in a database, processes images, and stores WCS coordinates in the database. An abstract device layer enables control of all possible combinations of mounts, CCDs, photometers, and roof and cupola controllers.

INDI is an instrument-neutral distributed interface control protocol that aims to provide backend driver support and automation for a wide range of astronomical devices (telescopes, focusers, CCDs, etc.). Current supported devices include many telescopes, CCDs, filter wheels, focusers, and video cams. INDI is used in popular astronomy suites like Xephem, KStars, DCD, and Cartes Du Ciel.

Lynkeos processes astronomical webcam images. By stacking the best images, the signal to noise ratio is increased, and details lost in the noise of individual images become visible in the resulting image. This software accepts, as input, QuickTime, AVI, and MPEG sequences, or still images, in any image format supported by its active plugins (TIFF, FITS) and Cocoa. It generates a 16-bit RGB TIFF or a monochrome FITS image as output, to be further processed with some all-purpose image processing application.
