DSControl is a processing based application that allows to for independent axis control of the DS2000 head(aka Milapse head) with the old Meade #497 controller(same setup posted on the TimeIsMotion project page(http://openmoco.org/node/25). The software allows the user to pick the starting and ending points of the timelapse by pusically moving the head using the 497 controller or by using the built in control buttons in the application. Based on the start and end point in both pan and tilt and the duration entered by the user, the software then calculates the speed for both axis. The user can then use the selector buttons on the far right of the application to trigger the motion in both axis, essentially to start the timelapse process.
For more information and to download the software and instrucutions please see: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dscontrol/
