Re: Plugin for Starnet++

starnet definately works, but I need to be able to take/make a starmask to put the stars back into the image after it has been processed. Haven't figured out how to do that in AA yet :-\

Re: autofocusing noobie q

Does the naming sequence follow what has been set up?
Apologies, I can't find any reference to "sequence" in the help files.
Also, is there a list of autofocusers that AA can communicate with, and does it have to be through ASCOM?

thanks again

Re: autoguiding query

I have re-seated my spotter & guidescope to sit centrally (as opposed to at the end of the scope) and diametrically opposite to the camera, in a bid to optimise my overall balance, due to my excellent (but heavy and long) Intes Micro MN86 sitting on my CEM60EC. This actually worked very well, and l...

Re: autoguiding query

Hi, about "reduced the pulsing", which option exactly ? By the way, I suggest to reset all autoguide settings (click the 3 buttons "Default values") and repeat the calibration (is it normal that RA is 2X faster than DEC?) hi Fabdev, I Mean by increasing the "pause after pulse" value. I will double ...

Re: canon 7D q

many thanks Dunmunro - sorted with that !
All my imaging up to now has been monochrome with filters, so this is new processing territory to me.

canon 7D q

hi all, We actually had a few clear hours last night, and I was able to do a first time test in/on my new obs with a canon 7d mk2. I have many, many hours of imaging with SX cameras but Canon is new to me, and M31 was nice and high. 2 q's arose that I could not understand, any help and advice would ...
