SQM Reader Pro CD

SQM Reader Pro

The only software like it anywhere!


SQM Reader Pro 2 for Windows gives you the tools you need to get the most from your Sky Quality Meter model LE, LU, LU-DL or LR. From initial setup of the meter, to nightly data collection, to enabling sophisticated statistical analysis, SQM Reader Pro 2 makes understanding the light pollution in your evening dark sky easy, accurate and convenient.

SQM Reader Pro 2 uses your computer's Ethernet connection to read dark sky data from the model LE, a USB port from models LU and LU-DL, and a 9-pin serial port from the model LR. You can read dark sky data from the model LE over a network or use an Ethernet crossover cable to read it directly. You can read dark sky data from models LU, LU-DL and LR directly via the appropriate cable. SQM Reader Pro 2 does not calibrate the Sky Quality Meter or alter its accuracy.

If you are an imager, a serious deep-sky observer, or you are conducting a dark sky study, SQM Reader Pro 2 is for you. Click to see who is using SQM Reader Pro.
