Rcerca(Search) 7

This new version allows the connection directly with the Observatory.
There is no need for a remote desktop.
It is possible following all the aim phases of the telescope and acquiring images
directly from the star map, which acts as a client.
With the priorities or privileges set up to maximum, the client can execute all the commands required
for the remote operation of the observatory, opening/ closing dome, turn on devices,
parking/unparking the telescope, and much more.
