Hi I have been watching a few videos regarding the above and in them, they used Sharpcap, there was a screen that had a reticule so the stars could be well and truly centred. I cannot find that screen, can anyone help please.

Re: Focusers

Hello all, I have downloaded Ascom driver 6.4 but when I open it there is a Miriad of headings, so which one do I need to click on to ensure the focuser, which I have not yet purchased, works correctly?

Sharpcap and Apple

Hi I am thinking of buying a new laptop and am looking at an Apple but it seems that the majority of the Apples seem to be Mac, my question is would Sharpcap run OK?
Apple have laptops with SSD already installed and the GB I would want would be no less than 8.
