Consulting Services

Tpoint Consulting can offer state-of-the-art expertise in telescope pointing and tracking algorithms and in many other areas of positional-astronomy and astrometry. Any scale of problem can be addressed, from a few hundred lines of code implementing a pointing kernel up to complete telescope control systems. Studies of the pointing characteristics of individual telescopes can also be undertaken.
