I don’t have an automated rotator…maybe someday soon, but in the meantime I’m trying to get a handle on the manual rotator feature in SGP.
You can set the angle in degrees, but I’m trying to understand how one determines the actual degree value to use and what the base reference point is. The documentation leaves much to be desired in that respect.
So let’s say I’ve got a target plate solved and centered and I’m pointing East. I take a few frames to adjust my composition and get the DSLR set at an angle that works for that composition. Perhaps even the camera is level to the ground. How does one determine the degree angle am I at in order to repeat this on a subsequent night?
