Introducing Smart Planning for 

Plan like the pros do. SkyTools Imaging is new software that replaces guesswork with accurate calculations. Smart planning stems from accurately estimating the signal to noise ratio (image quality) under any conditions. 

It will help you select target objects that are appropriate for a given iTelescope, or tell you the best iTelescope to use for a given target object.

It will select the proper filters, determine when to make your reservation, and create an optimized imaging plan that can be uploaded to the iTelescope.
