CloudWatcher “Solo”, designed by Lunático to make the most of the AAG CloudWatcher. It is a tiny computer customized to control your CloudWatcher 7 days 24 hours, with the following highlights:
- very low power requirements, less than 2W, ideal for remote observatories
- integrated web server, so you can check your observatory’s weather from any part of the world
- constant monitoring implies longer life for the AAG CloudWatcher
- takes power from your current AAG CloudWatcher power supply
IMPORTANT: The “Solo” must be installed, indoors, it is not designed to withstand the harsh conditions the AAG CloudWatcher does.

The information read from the AAG CloudWatcher is available to any computer in the same network, so you can use your current Windows software, in “Remote” mode, and keep the integration with your current session control software / automation – in some cases, you can even uninstall the Windows software, as the “single line data” file is also published – suitable for CCDAP, CCDCommander, our ASCOM safety monitor driver and also Chris Rowland’s ASCOM observing conditions driver.
The SOLO allows you to install an Android widget that will give you the sky conditions at a glance on your mobile phone!
As the “Solo” has its own serial port and publishes information in the local network, you’ll get rid of any USB/Serial devices and drivers issues.
