thanks - I don’t know why I never looked at that before. How cool. I called up 2 dozen targets I want to get to and picks my framing and scope required. I sent a few 4 up mosaics as well. I did M80 and 81 as a “pair” of frames. It’s really slick. I set my 152mm at .64 scale and my 80mm as 2.02 image scale and seemed to work well.
I love being able to load in a wide field and pic the frame/target areas (details) I find most interesting.
Yes I suspect it slews then centers with the same rotation night after night to align frames over several nights and filters. Before I knew this I was shooting a 10 min sub of the target just to center and rotate. This is a great time saver. (10 min !? was required to see any nebulousity of the elephant trunk with 3nm ha. Really working exposure with my setup (F8) nb 3mn - is about 15 min at least per sub.
OH - I thought I had asked - after a pier flip ? SGP will automatically flip the sub? or is there an option I have to set? I suspect if it see’s a rotator it will use it to keep subs in line. That will be awesome.
(before flip it plate solves) so after a flip it centers/solves again… I suspect this will flip the rotator?
OH while you’re here - I have a REQUEST should be easy. Could you add a “SLAVE” dome toggle on the observatory dock? I do have it slave at seq start. But I often want it slaved before I start. Every time I do I have to call up control panel, click other and click Slave. It would be great to see it there in front of me in the dock all the time. As well this would allow me to see when it unslaves… (sometimes I’ll abort, restart and when I abort it thinks seq is done and will unslave. It would be nice to see status all the time on the dock.
