Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Metrocat07, Thanks for sending the Youtube video, can't wait to take a look. Yesterday I set up inside to just familiarize with the process and couldn't get an image in SharpCap...finally I realized/remembered that I wasn't in focus! Duh! Shows you how much of a beginner I am, but not for long! My b...

Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Metrocat07, Actually, after deleting and reinstalling the Skyportal app, everything seems to be working (SkySafari app is still in the works). Now that I can use the scope, we have a seven day of clouds ahead, so not much time to experiment. Unfortunately, it's been since fall that I began to develo...

Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Metrocat & Turfpit, Sadly, SkySafari has found a calibration bug in their software, we've been trying to beta test all winter and I am still in limbo. The "fix" is due in weeks (so they say). I can't tell you how frustrating it has been. The one picture I took of the moon last fall was my last time ...

Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Unfortunately, I'm in the United States, perhaps someone can ask whether these lectures/workshops can be made available online. I'd be glad to pay for them. More than glad!

Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Just wanted to touch base with everyone. My Evolution / StarSense scope refuses to align. I consistently get "Alignment Pointing Error too large, and then invariably, the SkySafari app freezes (this has happened consistently the last three disastrous attempts to observe). So, I just wanted you to kn...

Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Sorry Dave I apologize. And again, thank you for trying to work with my issues. I've never been involved in any forum before and didn't realize I was breaking protocol. I'm new to all of this and will be sure to stay on topic going forward.

Re: StarSense alignment issue

Beautiful shot of the full moon Dave. Thanks for sharing the information. I see you were using the R2. Here's a question for anyone using Celestron StarSense with SkySafari 6 Pro, although I think the question is more generic. Last night I was trying to obtain a manual three-star alignment. Only one...

Re: In need of a SharpCap tutor

Dave and Don, Last night was the first night I had a glimpse of the full moon rising over the eastern horizon. It was brief (I only had 15 minutes before the clouds rolled in). But during that fifteen minutes I did it! I actually got a decent snapshot of the moon (attached). I feel like I'm official...
