Get AstroPhoto Plus

Please make sure that you are connected to the internet while installing AstroPhoto Plus.

Open a terminal, and run the following command:

wget -N -q https://raw.githubusercontent.com/GuLinux/AstroPhoto-Plus/master/scripts/setup/ubuntu-raspbian.sh && sudo bash ./ubuntu-raspbian.sh && rm ubuntu-raspbian.sh

The script will automatically download dependencies, install and setup AstroPhoto Plus, and optionally setup sudo permissions and Wifi access point for you (useful if you need to use AstroPhoto Plus as a remote software.

This script is intended for Ubuntu and Raspbian only. AstroPhoto Plus will work on other distributions, but you will need to use the "Manual Setup" method.

For Raspberry Pi it is highly recommended to use the "Raspberry Pi Image" method instead.

Run AstroPhoto Plus

Since AstroPhoto Plus is a web application, all you need to do after installation is open your browser.

AstroPhoto Plus is designed to work completely offline, without an internet connection, but you will need one for the very first run, when dependencies are downloaded automatically.

You also will need an internet connection when downloading platesolving index files, or NGC/IC catalogs.

If you installed the server on the same computer you're running your browser, just open http://localhost.

Otherwise just replace localhost with the ip address of the server.

See the guides page to get more information on AstroPhoto Plus usage.
