Re: AA8 User manual

I can't find the pdf manual either?
One of my fellow amateur astronomers is also searching for his with AA8.

Re: Automating stacking and reduction in sets of 5 images

May I ask what You want to obtain by this?
Why not just stack all, that will give the best s/n ratio.

Is it to create an animation of an object that moves? (Asteroid, comet, …)

Sun orientation marker

I really find the Sun marker usefull. However, it is in the 2D plane the picture is taken in. Would it be possible, to supply further information in order to get the 3D direction to the Sun? The angle into or out of the plane? The comet tail might be much longer into the picture. Off course, this wo...

Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Any news on pausing PHD2 when doing an auto focus in a sequence? PHD2 still "freakes out" when I auto focus. I am using an off axis guider. I know I can script my way out of it, but it would be very convenient to have a checkbox in the sequencer: Pause PHD2 when AF. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kk6csgk...

Re: Placing a mark at an exact coordinate

Hello, no, but after the annotation is moved with the mouse, it can be moved precisely with the keyboard with CTRL + arrows. Actually if the point is removed and it's replaced with a star selection, then snapping is possible with the experimental shortcut SHIFT + S (with the annotation active, and ...

If I zoom an extremely ammount in, such that pixels in the image is eg 20x20 pixels on the screen, I can identify the pixel that closest match the coordinate by fiddeling the cursor arround. But this is cumbersome, if you need ...

Is there an automatic way to coregister multiple images (different sources)? I have my own set of calibrated images and want to stack those with a set of calibrated images from a friend of mine. We have different setups with different pixelscale and image dimensions. Since there's hundreths of image...
