### Re: calibration (dark,Flat & Bias

Hi Eric and Fabio,
effectively in my answer I missed one sentence becuase it was a question. The right answer should have been, "you have to disable it".
Sorry for the misunderstanding.

### Re: The center plate

Hello Patrick, in the Astrometry panel of the Tool Menu the item "Center Plate", as far as I have understood, indicates the precision in pixel (0.5 is the suggested precision) of the position of the center plate once the Astrometry calculation have been done. It is indicated by a red inclined cross ...

### Re: The center plate

Hello Patrick, the answer to the first question is yes, it could be also the center of an image. According to my understanding the always a geometrical definition (i.e. an image, either cropped or not, is centered at coordinates x and y). The center plate selection is not in the Astrometry window bu...

### Re: The center plate

Hi Patrick,
"center plate" is a geometrical definition of the coordinates (x/2,y/2) where x and y are the numbers of the pixels of the sensor.
Regards.

### Re: Placing a mark at an exact coordinate

As far as I know you can only position an annotation on pixel coordinates.

Hi Wayne,
I forgot to add the code relevant to the file name:
QUOTE
ora=mid(UTDateTime(),9,4)
fileName = oggi+"-"+ora+SeqSep+name + SeqSep + flt+SeqSep+Format(idx,"000")+SeqSep+str(exp)+"s"
fileName=fileName+".fit"

### Re: Default directory and asteroid target list

Hi Wayne, I solved this kind of problem defining a variable with the name of the directory where I intended to save the observation files. In particular I used this code (some words are in Italian, however it's easy to understand): QUOTE oggi=today() year=left(date,4) ImgPath= "C:\Users\user\Picture...

### Re: focus window and operation

Well, try with the FullFrame Autofocus routine. Is much better than the old AA6 autofocus routine. I'm using this routine in my observation unattended runs and I'm pretty satisfied. However my set up is different from yours (LX600 14") having a longer focal length. I obtained the best results by usi...

### Re: Error trapping

Hi Fabio, thank you for the answer. Well, it could be useful having the possibility to check if the .connect was successful or not so I can foresee a routine either to continue (i.e. even if the image is not well focused I can do photometry) or to place the scope in a safe position and close the roo...
