Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Hi Rudi, just a suggestion. I really like the idea of the sequencer. A few times I requested new features to Fabio and he implemented some of them. Since the sequencer will create a script that will do the same thing I have found it much easier to embellish the script whenever I feel the need for a ...

Re: Cannot connect to ZWO Camera

Just a suggestion check that all three are installed.

Re: Cannot connect to ZWO Camera

Re: settings QHY268c in Astroart

When you start your camera (I assume it's an ASCOM driver) you should see the ASCOM camera chooser. The Properties button should open a window with camera controls.

Re: Setteling time when using Center

Hi Rudi, the center script has been working well for me so far. Here is the script I used for years to center. You can adjust the pause to meet your needs. raOri = Telescope.RA deOri = Telescope.DEC Camera.Binning(3) Camera.Start(5) Camera.Wait ra,de = Image.EstimateRADEC ok = Image.FindCoordinates(...
