Re: Wish List - Star Atlas and platesolve data base

Hello, adding figures to the Atlas can be done easily. As you wrote, platesolving the guider may not work, and in any case it will not help to reach the guide star, since the guide camera will be moved blindly by hand. By the way: since an OAG just rotates around the main field, maybe the best info...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Thanks for all of the suggestions, Duncan. I tried them and even used Windows 10 software compatability test to try and fix the problem. The test reformatted windows to Windows 8 but the result was exactly the same. No taskbar on the bottom so no ability to find minimized windows. So, I am just goi...

Wish List - Star Atlas and platesolve data base

Currently the camera frame is shown in the Star Atlas. Would it be possible to show the guide camera and imaging camera frames simultaneously in the Star Atlas? I intend to use an OAG in the future and it would be very handy to have the both the guide camera and imaging camera frames visible to aid ...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

I installed AA7 on another laptop and it correctly shows the star atlas as an icon when minimized... My current display (from where I am typing this) is a 1920x1200 projector display but the source is a laptop with a native display of 1366x768. By default the laptop forced the projector display to s...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Everything is updated and this is a new computer. Exactly why I cannot stand Windows and always prefer to use my Mac. All other programs seem fine so I am not sure what the issue is. If I cannot resolve this, I need to find MAC program to use. Are you using larger fonts and/or icons? Sometimes that...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

As you can see on the attachments, the camera window is open and when I minimize it, it disappears instead of going to the lower left corner. All the windows I open do the same thing. That appears to be a video driver bug because the lower portion of the AA7 frame is missing. I cannot replicate tha...

Correct - I have Windows 10 V10.0.17134 Build 17134

Same here, but I have no problems except the Star Atlas.

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

I tried that- no difference. All minimized windows still disappear. You mean the camera control windows and image windows? I didn't notice that from Feb 24-March 10 and I was using two machines running two mounts for two weeks...in fact, now that I think about it, I had no problem with the Star Atl...

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

Actually, any of the windows you minimize in AA7 disappear in Windows 10 - not just the Star Atlas. I've been leaving them open and just shuffling them around which makes it difficult to view the main window. Try enabling "auto hide taskbar" in the Win10 taskbar settings. I haven't noticed anything...

Re: Sequencer AA7

The current autofocus always selects the brightest star. Maybe the focus exposure time was too short? On some fields an exposure time of 2 seconds may be necessary to get an acceptable star. OK, I will write you by PM when ready. (But only increasing the exposure time will solve). I think I underst...
