So I’m just trying to understand how to get SGP to do what I want.
I start by setting up a sequence for a new object. I use a hyperlink from Astrobin to get the coordinates. I put that in for my object and the coordinates populate into the fields. Now I’m ready to start the sequence.
When it starts, the scope centers on my object, but its not quite the center I would like it to be.
So I tried taking out the astrobin link and I centered the object myself using the keypad in EQMOD. I then took the RA and DEC coordinates from EQMOD and entered those manually for the object in SGP.
So I start the sequence again and it centers the object again, but its still not what I wanted. Am I doing this wrong?
Thinking about it now, the one thing I did not do, which maybe I should have, was to perform a sync in Carte Du Ciel so it knows the true location of that object.
Thanks in advance for helping a rookie learn the ropes. If this all works out, I’m gonna buy a license when my trial expires.
