Applied with an improved synopsis and description.  This is a nice
package!

Thanks,

:)

Now your description doesn't mention that you can control (actual) telescopes with it (via the serial port; that's what the qtserialport dependency is for). I do that, it's fun and kinda eerie.

I agree, that's a really important feature of this software. What do you
think of adding the following sentence to the description?

"It can be used to control telescopes over a serial port for tracking
celestial objects."

I'm not familiar with the language of astronomy. Improvements welcome :)

I think it's a good sentence :)
