So if I take the image on the night will that have the WSC information in, or do I need to enable in Ekos first, if so how do I do that...
Many thanks

Yup superb, that’s what I was looking for, many thanks as you can tell am new to this, but to be honest the software is superb, best I have ever used, just can’t find everything I need to know in one place, I have watched all the tutorials on YouTube, but the newest one is over 12 months old and the software was comepletly different then....
I realise a new one was just released today, and have watched that, but I had already figured all that out, so look forward to the next
Again thanks :)

I am not sure I explained the above very well....I will try and simplify my question...
When an image is solved, and the target, say M42 is centred, BUT I want to have say the top right corner of M42 in the centre of my image, can I just click on the solved image in that spot and tell the mount to centre there.....or can this not be done with this software.....like it can be done in other packages such as APT... (not that I use that anymore) as this is far superior.. :)

Hope that makes more sense now..

Hi
I understand how the platesolve feature works and have now used it a few times with success
But is it possible to upload and image from a while ago solve the image, and then say you want to centre the top right corner of the uploaded image to photograph, can the image be clicked on and tell the scope to slew to a certain point on the image....
Or does movement commends have to come through the image in the planetarium software Kstars..??

Ok, all sorted and working now....
One thing still puzzles me a little, my problem was that because I had not set a new park position, it was following an old one from before I owned the mount, which I get, BUT why was that old park setting so far away from NCP and in a weird position....seems odd what it would have been set like that....is it something to do with moving the mount with clutches open...or does that not affect..?

Yes but the whole point is a remote setup, so I need to be able to park and unpack from exactly the same position, I won’t be there to manually move, I thought that was the idea of the park and unpark feature with these mounts.. :)

Hi,
Yes I found that earlier, I think I have sorted it now, but it’s still confusing me
The home position on my mount was no where near the NCP, so after I pressed park and it slewed to this weird position, I loosened the clutches and pointed at the NCP, ok I thought next time it will be correct....and then parked the scope, it didn’t move as it thought it was still in the same position, so all good parked and pointing at the NCP.

So powered the mount off then back on, and unmarked, then slewed to a star, all good, and synced...still all good, then pressed park, and guess what it went back to the weird position.....but can’t understand how it could, as I had corrected the park position with the clutches off, so as far as the mount was concerned nothing had moved.....it’s still totally confusing me
