Chrosziel continuously develops and releases new firmware for its Lens Control Systems (LCS) Aladin MK II and MagNum. The nearly monthly releases not only include minor changes requested by our users but also mainly new functions. This shows that the user feedback plays an important role in the specifying process of developing state-of-the-art functions. Our in-house software development gives us the advantage of reacting rapidly to the demands of the market.
