"Star Focus Assistant" is a utility developed to help astrophotographers using a DSLR camera focus their camera while viewing an object in real time. This requires that your camera have the ability to send a real time or "Live View" image to your computer so that you can see your "target" image change focus as you turn the focus ring on your camera lens. "Star Focus Assistant" does this by tracking a slowly moving bright spot (your focus star) and magnifying dynamically a portion of your display. "Star Focus Assistant" uses pixel information from this "Live View" image. Star Focus Assistant is $20 shareware. Users can try Star Focus Assistant in Demo Mode for up to ten launches before registration is required.
