Re: Is 60s good enough?

Thanks much- I am aware of the other issues but always good to be reminded of the SCT flaws for "long" exposures. I have the Celestron autofocuser but it does not allow lock down of the primary mirror. I also have a MoonLite stepper motofocuser to lock down the primary but I want the option to use m...

Re: Is 60s good enough?

Very good to know- thanks much. There is so much conflicting info out there, it was hard to determine the correct course to take. I will give it a try without guiding and see how it goes.

Is 60s good enough?

Hello I am going to try once again to see if I can do AP. Several months ago I bought AA7 and several of you were very helpful. I was having issues with the software on my windows 10 laptop but those are resolved. I have also upgraded my mount in my observatory (AP1100) and I have doing live viewing...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Just a FYI...… changing scale and layout from the recommended 125% to 100% fixes the problem of minimized windows disappearing in Windows 10.

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Unfortunately, I only have 1 windows PC. All of my other computers are MACs. And the PC is a new Dell and I tried 3 other astro programs and they are load up fine. So, it is something funny between my new Dell and AA7. Frankly, I do not want to waste time exploring what is wrong, especially not bein...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Thanks for all of the suggestions, Duncan. I tried them and even used Windows 10 software compatability test to try and fix the problem. The test reformatted windows to Windows 8 but the result was exactly the same. No taskbar on the bottom so no ability to find minimized windows. So, I am just goin...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

I tried that too- it is at the recommended settings but I altered them just to test it. Same problem and only with AA7. All other programs display just fine.

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Everything is updated and this is a new computer. Exactly why I cannot stand Windows and always prefer to use my Mac. All other programs seem fine so I am not sure what the issue is. If I cannot resolve this, I need to find MAC program to use.
