The new Pocket Cloudwatcher Version 2 is an improved version of Lunatico’s portable solution for cloud detection. Featuring the ability to measuring sky quality, sky temperature, relative humidity and the dew point, the pocketCW2 also includes a built-in GPS and can be accessed from a phone or PC.

The new pocketCW2 will initially be launched with all the functionality of the original Pocket CloudWatcher.

From then on, we will start incorporating the new version’s improvements in the shape of software updates. It goes without saying that the pocketCW2 will include all the necessary components to be able to integrate the new characteristics, and the software updates will be free. And of course, full PC connectivity will be available from the very beginning (ASCOM driver, Windows software, etc).

  • Able to measure sky quality
  • Includes 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi

  • ASCOM – Alpaca
  • Indi – Indigo
  • Configurable alarms for each of the readings (1), for the battery level and the data updates (“watchdog” function)
  • With PC connection through USB-C connector
  • Works with an internal rechargeable LIPO battery (*optional)

Your pocketCW2 will enable you to go to your favourite “dark place”, and relax while it monitors the sky and ambient conditions, knowing it will wake you up if there is any issue!
