Re: SharpCap Pro Not Slewing Mount Correctly using Celestron Starsense

The procedure I followed was the same as before, that is I connected to the the mount and then slewed the mount nor...

SharpCap Pro Not Slewing Mount Correctly using Celestron Starsense

SharpCap Pro Not Slewing Mount Correctly using Celestron Starsense Hello. I am currently using SharpCap to control an Orion Sirius mount (Skywatcher/SynScan) using the Celestron StarSense alignment accessory with the SynScan adapter (as a consequence, I'm also using the Celestron mount driver). The ...

Re: Recommendations on guide scope and camera

Hello Stephen,

I forgot to mention that I use the ASI120MM Mini as a guide camera. It works pretty good and is only $150

Re: Recommendations on guide scope and camera

Hello Stephen, I use an Orion Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope with Helical Focuser. It is pretty light and can be used as either a guide scope or as a finder scope. It is also not too expensive at $130. I am pretty happy with its performance. Orion also has a cheaper version for $80 called the Orion Mi...

Re: Spiral search problem with Skywatcher mounts

With regard to the size of the spirals, I would think that adjusting the size of the spirals based on the camera's FOV would yield an optimum spiral size. Just a thought.

Re: Spiral search problem with Skywatcher mounts

Hello Steve. Yes that has happened to me. When SharpCap get disconnected from the mount, the mount just keeps going in one direction until you stop it. Fortunately, I was just testing the mount out without a scope attached. If I had had a scope attached, it could have been bad news.

Re: Spiral search problem with Skywatcher mounts

I think I have figured out the problem. I was using the SkyFi wireless unit to control the telescope. It has always worked fine in the past but apparently, it gives unreliable results when used with SharpCap. When I made a direct wired connection to the mount, everything worked fine. Sorry for the t...
