DC-3 Dreams makes astronomy automation software that differs from others in two important ways:
(1) It includes a self-contained web service with mobile features, allowing individuals, teams, students to acquire images remotely without access to the desktop at the observatory from their tablet, mobile phone, or desktop computer. By filling in very simple forms, the data is acquired and may be delivered via DropBox, iCloud, etc.
(2) The optional ACP Expert scheduler provides all observatory operations including startup/shutdown, target selection, data acquisition, and calibration frames, totally 24/7 hands off. ACP Expert’s artificial intelligence scheduling adapts to periods of unsafe weather, requests made during the night, and receives VOEvent triggers for transient events from sources such as ASASSN, SWIFT, and Gaia, automatically scheduling followup observations.
