Re: Inspect Corners

Ah I see. It helps me feel bad about my poor back focus. Looking forward to it! :D

Re: Meridian flip script operational

Thanks as always for your reply, Johan. Currently I slew to some star on the far side of the meridian, then wait for 20 minutes or so, then begin plate solving, etc. It is boring, and there may be smarter alternatives. But I haven’t tried alternatives. Maybe there is some bring basic that I’m missin...

Re: Meridian flip script operational

Ah, I found you had previously answered this same question here: https://bb.cloudmakers.eu/viewtopic.php?p=4156#p4156. I'll give that a try.

Re: Meridian flip script operational

Looking forward to trying this out!

One thing that confuses me:
The script will wait for the mount to go 20min over the meridian,
If my scope will hit my mount about 15 minutes BEFORE the meridian. Is this value customizable?

Re: Meridian Flip, a thought experiment

Ah thanks. I did have a smaller limit set. I need that limit, to prevent my filter wheel from crashing into my tripod. I'll take a look at the script to see if I can make it work with the user-defined limit.

Re: Meridian Flip, a thought experiment

Clear skies, and I'm testing the script. I hope it doesn't smash my scope. Wish me luck!

Edit: The HA Limit was reached and the mount parked before the script noticed anything. I guess I'm confused how the script is supposed to work with an HA Limit...?

Re: Astrometry for macOS 2.0

There is so much potential here. Multiple targets in a single sequence, automatic framing, meridian flips... Great to see!
