An high-performance and open-source Ethernet interface for the Audine camera

The AudiNet interface greatly improves the performance of the Audine camera, a CCD camera for astronomy designed by a group of French amateur astronomers located in Toulouse, France. This improvement results from replacing the PC / Audine parallel link with an Ethernet PC / Audine link. The advantages are:

  • the loading time of images is shorter.
  • the connecting cable is longer.
  • you can directly connect the Audine camera to an Ethernet network and, why not, to Internet.
  • the PC remains available while images are loading.
  • you can use any operating system.

AudiNet is a solution based on a standard, off-the-shelf electronic component Picoweb and software programs that interface with the astronomy software AudeLA.
