Feature Tracking (Expirmental)

Post by BlackWikkett » Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:37 pm

I've been playing around with Feature Tracking and hadn't had much success. Finally got it working tracking the moon without the system constantly over compensating. Found settings that worked for my FL / image scale that kept the moon centered on screen.

If / when feature tracking becomes none experimental please include the ability to turn off tracking circles drawn on the live image. If this would be possible. The tracking circles are not saved to captured images but would be nice not see them while observing the live image but still have the Feature Tracking active.

Hope that makes scenes.

thanks for the suggestion – makes perfect sense. This feature was mainly designed for lunar and solar imaging, so it's no surprise that it works best for you with the moon.

Cheers, Robin
