It’s perhaps “cheating” ;-)

It’s a brand new Lenovo X1 laptop

Thanks. Nice machine!

It's over twice as fast as my fastest computer, but the preprocessing time is still impressive and it shows how well Astroart utilizes modern multicore/multithreaded processors.

I am getting similar results....I just calibrated, DeBayered and Sigma combined 80 subs in 1:15 seconds with an i7 box with 32GB of ram and a 1TB SSD. Way faster than my old i5 8GB laptop.

ASTROART7 is able to preprocess comet tracking, but ASTROART8 can not preprocess comet tracking.

Did you use the 'follow minor planet' option?

Hi to all!
I want to upgrade to AA8! I want to upgrade the AA7 (32Bit) and I want to move or copy it to a 64 Bit Notebook. Is there a guide for such work?
Is there a Comet traking inside, now. I do my Astrometrie by Astrometrica. But I would like make some pretty Pictures Comet sharp and Stars with no trails.
I can do this in Astrometrica using the Images L, R, G, B in Astrometrica, but the Stars are trails of course. The Deep Sky Stacker isn't fast for other Formats than JPG.

This is a function I would like within AA8. Even a setting for the Comet like Direction Angle and Movement "/minute should work (Data is visible in Astrometrica as an Example).

How can I test the Goto on my EQ6 R Mount. How can I read about Imaging Camera and Guiding Camera?

I work with an old Celestron 8 with a ZWO ASI Mono Pro LRGB now, and it works (no Guider). I will move the Camera to a C11 (EQ6 R) and adding a ZWO ASI Mini Mono for guiding.
