PrimaluceLab EAGLE5 S Computer For Telescopes & Astrophotography

If you're looking for more power and storage space in a compact and low-power system, the EAGLE5 S is the perfect choice for you. Despite delivering desktop-class performance, this system has an average power consumption of only 1A, meaning it can still be powered with a compact field battery. With more than 2x the performance of the standard EAGLE4, the EAGLE5 S offers the best price/performance ratio among the EAGLE line.


Equipped with Intel's 11th generation i3 processor, featuring a TDP of only 15W and 6MB of cache, the EAGLE5 S provides desktop-class performance while consuming minimal power. This system offers three USB 3.2 type A ports, two USB 4 ports (one with a Thunderbolt 4 type-C connector and the other with a Thunderbolt 3 type-C connector) with data transfer rates of up to 40 Gbps, as well as five USB 2.0 ports, two HDMI 2.0b ports, a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, and WiFi 6 802.11ax connectivity.

EAGLE5 S Features:

  • With Windows 11 Enterprise installed, you have the freedom to use your preferred Windows software and devices.

  • Also equipped with an EYE sensor that monitors sky quality within a 5° field of view where the telescope is pointed.
  • The system includes an inclinometer to measure the elevation of your telescope.
  • The motion detector can detect unexpected or unwanted movements of your telescope caused by high winds, sudden flexures, or cable snags.
  • With the DARK mode, you can turn off all the LED lights for optimal observing.
  • Boasting powerful and fast WiFi 6 (802.11ax) with dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz) connectivity.

  • The system weighs 1.25 kg (2.75 lb).

High Speed Connectivity

The EAGLE5 S model offers powerful Thunderbolt 4 and 3 ports with USB-C type connectors, providing lightning-fast connectivity options of up to 40 Gbps. In comparison to standard USB ports, USB-C/Thunderbolt adds several additional features, including:

  • Speed: With connectivity speeds up to 40 Gbps, the Thunderbolt 3/4 port outperforms USB 3.0, which is limited to 5 Gbps.
  • Power: The Thunderbolt 4 port can supply up to 100 W of power, while the Thunderbolt 3 port can provide up to 15W.
  • Connectivity: The Thunderbolt port allows you to connect many devices such as external drives, displays, multi-port docking stations, audio devices, etc. You can connect up to six devices, daisy-chained, through a single compact port.
  • Additionally, since it features a USB-C type connector, the cable is reversible, making it impossible to connect it the wrong way. If you have a standard USB-C device, you can connect it to the Thunderbolt port, although the maximum speed will be 10 Gbps in this case.

Inclinometer

The EAGLE5 S comes equipped with an Inclinometer sensor that accurately measures the elevation of your telescope relative to the horizon level with a high resolution of 0.1 degrees, and an average error of less than 1 degree. The real-time inclination data is displayed in the user-friendly EAGLE Manager X interface, allowing you to remotely monitor and confirm if your telescope is pointed at the correct elevation. Even when installed in parallel to your telescope with the power out ports pointing towards the sky, the EAGLE accurately displays the elevation, enabling you to ensure that your equatorial mount elevation settings are correct based on your Latitude or that your Alt-Az mount home position is accurately set in elevation.

Motion Detector

During the process of recording a sequence, it is possible to have some images appear blurry while others remain clear due to external factors such as wind gusts or cable snags that can interfere with the telescope's tracking accuracy. To address this issue, the EAGLE5 S features a Motion Detector that can detect unwanted motions and display them separately in the EAGLE Manager X interface. By differentiating these motions from mount tracking or goto movements, the Motion Detector allows the user to automatically repeat the last acquisition using PLAY or third-party software that supports Motion Detector technology.

About the EAGLE Manager X Interface

The EAGLE5 S is bundled with a software called "EAGLE Manager X" which automatically starts when Windows is booted up. The software provides a simple and user-friendly interface which enables you to perform the following tasks:

  • Enable/Disable all 12V power out ports: You can remotely activate or deactivate all connected devices (such as mount, camera, filter wheel, etc.) with the click of a button.
  • Check power consumption: You can monitor the power consumption of each 12V device connected to the EAGLE and also view the total power consumption of your telescope.
  • Name power and USB ports: You can assign custom names to each port to easily identify and manage them.
  • Check GPS data: The software displays information on the elevation, latitude, longitude, date, time, and number of connected satellites.
  • Check EYE sky quality: You can select the sensor that faces the sky and check the sky quality value.
    Set power out voltage: You can adjust the power output of the 3 x 0-12V power out ports for dew heaters and monitor the current consumption.
  • Verify elevation: The inclinometer can be used to verify the elevation of your telescope in relation to the horizon level.
  • Motion Detector: The software displays motion detector data and identifies unwanted motions to allow for automatic repetition of the last acquisition in case of unexpected movement.
  • Dark Mode: You can turn off all the LED lights with this feature.
  • Connect or disconnect USB devices: You can easily connect or disconnect devices connected to the A-B-C-D USB 2.0 ports, without the need to physically access the telescope.
  • Set connectivity options: You can choose between wireless or wired connectivity modes for remote access to your EAGLE.
  • Set automatic power routines: You can define the status of each port when the EAGLE is powered on or shut down, enabling automatic activation and deactivation of your devices.
  • Connect to ECCO controller: If you have an environmental controller, EAGLE Manager X can automatically connect and control dew heater power based on calculated dew-point.
  • Save sensor data: Data from various sensors are saved in log files on the EAGLE for later analysis.

Use the Devices and Software You Prefer with a Windows 11 Mini PC

There are various operating systems available in the modern world, each with their own strengths. However, most astronomy software and drivers are designed to work on Windows. To provide users with the flexibility to connect their preferred devices and use the software of their choice, the EAGLE runs on Windows. You can easily load any software that is compatible with Windows 10/11 on the EAGLE, just like you would on your standard Windows computer at home. This allows you to avoid being limited to one particular hardware manufacturer and customize the EAGLE according to your needs. The EAGLE5 uses a Windows 11 IoT Enterprise license, which is lighter and more stable compared to traditional PCs with Windows 11 Home or other OEM versions that come with unnecessary pre-installed software.

EAGLE is not just equipped with advanced astrophotography features, but also with the computing power of a full-fledged computer that surpasses that of a Mini PC, enabling you to use any astrophotography software you desire. To evaluate its performance, we conducted a PCMark benchmark test and compared EAGLE LE, EAGLE4, EAGLE5 S, EAGLE5 PRO, and EAGLE5 XTM with a typical Mini PC that we installed with the same EAGLE operating system to obtain precise results. The results, shown in the image below, indicate that EAGLE4/LE delivers a 32% better performance than a standard Mini PC with an Intel Celeron N3160 processor, 4GB of RAM, and SSD disk. EAGLE5 S increases the difference to an astonishing 183%, while EAGLE5 PRO achieves an even higher improvement of +231%. EAGLE5 XTM is the fastest of them all, providing an incredible boost of +316%!
