Re: Default Sigma for Plate Solve

Oh, thanks very much indeed Robin. If 50 is the default, how do we know how much to lower or increase it to find more or fewer stars? Is there a range of star quantity to be within or does it boil down to trial and error? Perhaps this is part of the ‘art’ of SC rather than the ‘science’. Thank you f...

Default Sigma for Plate Solve

Hi: Last night I finally experienced an inaccurate slew - a situation that I'd prepared for by setting up all the plate solving components, including Astrotortilla and all the correct indices. I said to myself: "ahaaa, I finally get to use Plate Solve." Well, Plate Solve failed repeatedly and each t...

Re: Flats and Offset Question

Thank you everyone! I’ve just returned from 6 weeks away and am picking up the flats issue which, at this point is really a matter of understanding the best process for capturing the Flats. I’ve heard so many variations in the process here and on CN forum that I confess to longing for an outline of ...

Re: Can SC Reticle imaging digital Finder be Adjusted to......

Robin, In moving around the reticle I also found that I could rotate it and resize the concentric circles by right-clicking. Could you tell me what, if any, is the significance of the concentric circles? Is there a way to adjust them to be a specific angular FOV? I see that they can be adjusted in a...

Re: Can SC Reticle imaging digital Finder be Adjusted to......

Hi Robin and thank you. Two methods to try is great. Can you tell me how to move and align the reticle in the first method? In the second method, I gather that I center the 290’s SC reticle once and it stays in the preset. Is there a way to then regain the full resolution of the 290 after aligning t...

Can SC Reticle imaging digital Finder be Adjusted to......

.....align the digital finder with the OTA EAA viewing camera? Hi, I'm going to be mounting an ASI 290, equipped with a 12mm F1.2 CS lens, to my OTA to act as a wide FOV digital finder (and to track approaching or passing clouds). If the dovetail bracket that holds the finder/ camera has no adjust-a...

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Thank you Dave! I'll get into the linked topic and see what's up. BTW, I agree on your experimentation point. Being 1 year into all this and still feeling there's still so much to learn, I sometimes when I haven't had time to test something, I try to short circuit the process and ask others. Thanks ...
