JMI

What is a Next Generation Computer?

JMI's popular computers allow you to easily guide to hundreds, thousands or even millions of objects in the database without knowing where they are and without using a star chart. You don't even need to level or polar align your scope. You can spend more time observing and less time hunting for objects. These computers are sometimes called digital setting circles because the early versions only displayed right ascension and declination, thus replacing the telescopes mechanical setting circles. The Next Generation Computers (or MAX computers as they are sometimes called) are not "Go-To" computers in that they do not move the telescope for you.

We supply hardware for over 100 commercial telescopes
