Re: MPCORB

I need to identify the location of a comet using the star atlas. I have down loaded the GSC and USNOB data bases. They work fine for stars and deep sky objects but not comets. The MPCORB database seems to be the answer. I have I think properly down loaded the MOCORB comet data base. Specifically, I...

Drizzle

I wonder if we might see some drizzle enhancements in the next Service Pack? I've noticed that drizzle doesn't seem to restore fainter star shapes as cleanly as I'd like. I'm using older cameras with bigger pixels and I need drizzle for maximum resolution.

Interprocess communications

Hi. AA7 can send commands to PHD2. Can it send commands to multiple instances of AA7, to coordinate dithering and imaging sequences?

Re: ASCOM temperature sensor?

Hi, there are some arduino projects, but then you will need to use scripts to program the behaviour, reading the temperature via the virtual serial port. If you need to take a long sequence and just need to autofocus every 90 minutes, you could build a sequence like: seqrep.png autofocus will be la...

ASCOM temperature sensor?

Hi all. I want to add a temperature sensor to monitor the temperature of my SCT tube, and then use that temperature to focus via the coefficient of expansion of the tube. Does any know of a suitable ASCOM supported sensor?
