Re: Live stacking under 1 minutes

Hi Robin, I use so short exposure to perform astrometric measures of very fast objects like neo who moves several arc sec/ min. Sometime there is for me the need to stack short time exposures (typycally 10 sec subframes to minimize tracking error of my mount) to obtain a stack of, say, 40 sec or les...

Wanting to take a step forward I got the equatorial wedge, I assembled everything correctly but at this point I'm not sure how to perform the polar alignment routine with the fork mount...
