Sample Tpoint scatter plot


The Company: Tpoint Software provides computer packages and consultancy services for high-precision telescope pointing applications. All types of telescope are supported: professional and amateur, optical/IR/radio, groundbased or space.

The Products: The TPOINT pointing-analysis application is used on thousands of telescopes worldwide, including the very largest. TPOINT uses pointing observations to expose and measure misalignments and flexures, which the telescope's control system can then take into account. Other packages (SLALIB/C, TCSpk, CPK and TPC) provide TPOINT-compatible control system components that implement the analysis results to achieve maximum pointing and tracking performance.
