that sounds promising! I have read your instructions and would like to ask one thing:
Do I understand it correctly, that in Model Maker I can prepare the modeling points, save this as a file somehow (the points with Alt/Az coordinates) and then I have to leave model maker?
So this means - when running your tool I cannot go back with the result to model maker in order to work on the model and such? Which features of Model Maker do I “loose” so to say?
I am asking that because I am currently thinking about if it is worth to buy PinPoint for this. At the moment I am using a sequence for the purpose of model creation:
Depending on sidereal time I need to choose the sequence I have previosly created. The sequence contains 20 Targets - 10 on each side of the meridian. Always using the Center function together with Astrometry as a Platesolving solution. In the end each Target just does 1 Frame in 4x Binning mode 1sec long.
This seems to work, but the sequence solves each region of the Sky 2 times this way which is a waste of time and I have no “settle” time as I would have in Model Maker. In addition Pinpoint is supposed to work faster and a change in the Points I use is currently a very very huge amount of work.
So for me at least it would be very good to know which function of Model Maker I will loose when using your tool together with SGP.
