Will SGP work with this equipment?


#1

Your program comes very highly recommended from a fellow astro-imager. I am currently using Backyard EOS with Astro Tortilla and PHD2 and I am seeking focus automation. My equipment is:

  • Orion EQ-G mount with EQ-MOD ASCOM connector
  • Rigel N-step focuser with temp sensor (there is some backlash when I switch directions resulting from slop in the focus tube)
  • Explore Scientific ED127 with current factory focuser
  • Canon T1i
  • Meade DSI guide camera attached to a 8mm f/5 guide scope
  • Camera cooler box
    I am looking for a solution that will plate solve, bookmark, assist in framing, auto focus, touch up focus throughout the night, and recommend exposures. Mosaics are less important but of interest. One feature I really enjoy with BYEOS is I can tell if bright stars and galaxy cores are over exposed with a point histograms.
