Camera offset from RA center

Post by cuivenion » Mon Nov 26, 2018 12:31 pm

I'm trying out a side by side configuration, so both the imaging and guiding equipment are slightly either side of the RA axis.

I'm wondering if this will effect Sharpcap Polar Alignment. I'm guessing not but I just want to check.

Hi,

the offset to the side won't matter at all, after all what's a foot to the side when you're looking at things that are light years away?

Cheers, Robin
