Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, I test the script this evening with the following driver: "Telescope Simulator for .NET" and with the EQ8-R mount connected with SynScan and EQMOD. The telescope simulator works good (moves on one side and perform the wanted movement). Both connection with the mount are not O...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, OK for ASTAP field of view. Yes, it works better with the field in vertical direction. For the mount slew ... I check it with my new mount ... the mount moves a little bit before the point and then perform the last movement in +RA and +DEC. If the new position is already in +RA or +DEC...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, Thank you for the different scripts. I test now the v035. It works good ... as long as I set the correct parameters. For example, I change to default_sleep = 1 (sec) ... it was too short and a lot of image plate solving were not fitting. I change now to 7 sec and ASTAP found I guess ab...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, One point, to be checked, is the correct selection of the coordinate system … B1950, J2000, J2050, JNOW, JLOCAL. Some software allows to select one coordinate system (ASCOM Telescope Simulator), other have something fix. For example Prism software gives the objects coordinates in RA/DE...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, I achieve to set the correct path changes in the script. It is now working ... also at least the script is running, but ... For seeing the movement of the telescope, I start CdC at the same time. Also I have the Sky-Simulator, SharpCap and CdC connected to the ASCOM.Simulator.Telescop_...

Re: SharpCap - a new dawn :)

Hello Robin, "Right now, I have a long long list of ideas for new features to go into SharpCap 3.3" Think that 3.4 comes after 3.3, or it could be 4.0. May be, if each user gives you a new idea per year, then we can have a +1.0 version each year. Also ... 100 users give 100 new feature per...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, Thank you for the scripts. Concerning R ... I install R-Studio 1.3.1073 last August. But for the path definition "default_Rscript" in the script "...R-3.6.2\\bin\\Rscript.exe" ... I have no Rscript.exe in my R-Studio installation. For the pracma installation ... I d...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, Concerning the Sky-Simulator software. You can add some pointing error depending on the slew distance or the slew time. It is nice for checking the plate solving software. The software can perform some small variation for testing PHD2. I have not tested it. But, you can not simulate an...
