IP Cameras

Sky Hub system is compatible with a variety of cameras.   The main requirement is that the camera is IP based and supports the RTSP protocol.    In the initial release the tracker will be optimized to work with a single fish eye lens camera.   This will give the largest view of the sky.    In future releases the fisheye camera will work in conjunction with a Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) camera.  When the fisheye camera spots something in the sky, it will direct the PTZ camera to that location and focus in on the object for greater detail.
