Hi all –
Since receiving my AP1100 mount, I’ve had a lot of great success except for one problem area: the AP mount only supports JNOW (well, local apparent, but for pointing I think JNOW is close enough).
My one main frustration has been dealing with this. Framing & Mosaic Wizard does J2000 from what I recall, the AP mount will only do JNOW, Pinpoint only J2000, and Astrometry will do either. I’m looking into Pinpoint for APCC and other reasons, and when I asked Bob Denny about this in the DC3 forum, he indicated for his setup, he uses J2000 across the board and only at the last minute when slewing the mount is the conversion to JNOW done (if needed).
Any chance to see this support in SGP? Not sure of the best way to handle this, except for an option in the telescope setup like ‘Translate coords to JNOW when slewing’; unfortunately, this seems to be one of those, “well, the other program should really handle that…” situations!
