Re: LattePanda

And one big "Hmmmmmmm" about the history of MINIX juxtaposed against the Minix-Z83. Is this supposed to be humorous? Seems like a slap in the face to me. Is it running Windows 10 or a carefully crafted verison of MINIX?

Re: LattePanda

Thanks, Dave, you caught me being sloppy. I used "RDP" as a generic term. I should be more careful. I use UltraVNC. The poster says he uses TightVNC. I will have to check that out.

Re: LattePanda

Thanks, Dave. It's good to see people using LattePanda for AP but I am beginning to think that LattePanda is a bit of overkill for my application. I found this exchange at CN. The sixth post talks of a Minix-Z83. It is more attractively priced and also comes with a case which LattePanda does not: ht...

LattePanda

Just curious if anyone has gotten SC working on LattePanda or other brand of Windows SBC.

Re: SharpCap 3.1.4477 Blind Plate Solve bug

Robin, I'm sorry I am using 'Telescope Simulator for .NET'. I was confused by the ASCOM window -- it says 'Telescope Simulator' in the title bar and 'V2' in the upper-left hand corner next to the ASCOM logo. Regarding the interface, I had 'German Equatorial' checked. I changed it to 'Equatorial' but...

Re: SharpCap 3.1.4477 Blind Plate Solve bug

Robin, I am glad that I persevered. An hour ago I was ready to give a not-so-glowing assessment but I finally got it working to my satisfaction with the only exception that I cannot turn on "tracking" AND plate solve -- I get an error from SharpCap saying something to the effect that a fun...

Re: SharpCap 3.1.4477 Blind Plate Solve bug

Actually there is another way of getting those extra arguments without the need for a new dialog. Just add them to the Plate Solve tab that you recently added to File | Settings. In the course of a night I go to three DSO's, tops. For each DSO I will plate solve four or five times. So it is no great...

Re: SharpCap 3.1.4477 Blind Plate Solve bug

Thank you, Robin. A sigma of 5 yielded 47 sources that resulted in success. I did a timing test. I did this on my desktop PC, a dual-core Celeron with 8GB of RAM, which works very well for me for software development, stacking, and image processing -- certainly not high-end but I am happy with it. M...

Re: SharpCap 3.1.4477 Blind Plate Solve bug

Robin, I was thinking that my requirements are one-off when compared to 99% of your users. Nearly everyone, I would imagine, has a Go-To mount with ASCOM drivers up the wazoo. I'd rather spend $1000's on other things. What I am getting at is this. I already have experience writing IronPython (see at...
