Re: PreProcessing drag and drop files

Could it be your technique? Tap touch pad and drag does not work. Tap release tap and drag works. At least for me.

Re: Plate solving in AA8

Hi Dave, great that you solved your ASCOM issue. My experience with AA plate solve is that once I click "OK" to solve, the image is almost immediately solved. So hang in there till you get it fine tuned. Just a suggestion once you do get an image solved if you move the courser off the image look at ...

Sometimes I go into the house and use Remote desktop to control AA on the imaging laptop and it all works, so I know it can be done. You are running everything on the AstroArt versi...

Re: AA8 failure to connect to camera

I'm confused by what you are trying to do. It sounds like you have the mini PC outfitted to run all your equipment and use remote desk top to operate the remote computer. If that is what you are doing you should not have ALPACA discovery enabled.

Re: AA8 failure to connect to camera

Hi Dave, I don't think you should be trying to connect to ASCOM remote/Alpaca if you are using remote desktop. The ASCOM driver is in the mini PC that has the camera connected to it and you are remotely operating the mini pc desk top. I think your problem is that the mini pc is trying to connect to ...

Re: Best Connection for Astroart to Gemini 2
