We have suspended manufacturing for the foreseeable future. Our suppliers are shuttered; parts are in short supply. Supply chains are greatly disrupted while distribute rs establish alternate sources.

The state of New Jersey is virtually closed to small business, due to COVID-19, and sadly, a terribly misguided Governor Murphy, who seems inclined to remain closed indefinitely. So we have no other choice but to close our doors at least until January 2021. After 13 years in business, we're now in an extended pause. If conditions have improved in January, I'll consider a restart. Until them, best to you all.

HELPING YOU ACHIEVE MORE. Foster Systems, LLC offers expertly-manufactured products to individuals, educational institutions, dealers and wholesalers worldwide.

Chances are that you are able to use your observatory only a few nights a month. Work, school, and other activities intervene. That means often, the best nights are overtaken by other responsibilities. If you take simple steps, your observatory can be utilized whenever weather or moon permits!

When you automate your observatory, even if partially at first, you can use your telescope even remotely at great distances. And with the right software, such as ACP Expert, this changes everything. Never miss a clear night again.

Our heritage is one of innovation, offering products that astronomers need. At Foster Systems, we're astronomers who have designed the AstroMC line of observatory automation equipment and software. All our products are engineered for the specific needs of your automation project.

Now in our 13th year, the company has been known for superior product quality. And at affordable pricing, making observatory ASCOM compliant automation available to everyone. We’re proud to continue with those same values and mission today.

Whether it's one of our roof controllers, dome controllers or our line of add-ons such as the AstroAlert weather monitor, our AtPark Monitor integration system, or our ScopeShutter aperture cover, the AstroMC product family makes life easy for the serious observer.

Automation of your Roof/Dome allows autonomous operation, allowing your obaservatory to become up to 90% utilized so that you can concentrate on the images and science. In the end, your observatory is a complex tool. Making that tool more automatic gives you time to pursue this exciting science.
