Richard Konrad replied to the topic 'slewing inbetween captures' in the forum. 4 days ago

I'm using a 300mm zoom lens so I was hoping not to have to buy an autoguider camera just so I could dither. So if your solution is doable I will be very happy indeed.

I wasn't able to find the post capture script. Also I don't have the knowledge to write a python script but would be obliged if you could point me in the right direction. I own a Celestron AVX mount. The manual states always to finish moving your mount with either the up or right arrow key on the hand controller. I'm assuming this keeps the gears tight and minimizes backlash. Anyway, with the script, I would want my mount to move in this manner.

This is exciting software. Polar alignment,focus and then slewing in between images. It's more than I thought possible through linux!

As I don't yet have an autoguider, I would still love the option to ditther between images. So is there a way I can automtically programme my mount to move x number of pixels in between each light frame? Manual dithering is a lot of work and I would like to avoid this. Can this be done under ekos?

Thanks in advance

Richard Konrad created a new topic ' Using dslr as autoguider' in the forum. 1 week ago

I am very new to astrophotography and have imaged with my dslr (300mm) for the past yeAR. For better results I would like the option to auto guide and dither. $ issues don't allow me to purchase any new equipment so I was wondering if it could be possible to autoguide with another dslr as opposed to buying a separate cmos/ccd camera. If that is possible, would ekos/indi support this? Thanks!
