Re: First timer, focusing (?) problem

Thank you Robin and Bruce, Last night I had a taste of this exciting hobby (just a taste). I'd like to think that my frustrations aren't that unusual, although sitting here this morning I'm wondering if I'm just not intuitive enough to master (or at least manage) all the intricacies involved. I only...

Re: First timer, focusing (?) problem

After a year of trial-and-error frustration with my Celestron Evolution 8, Celestron graciously agreed to replace my mount. Now I'm finally back to working with SharpCap. I'll admit that I've forgotten most of what I learned a year ago, but last nigh--my first night using SharpCap--I was able to vie...

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.
