Hi,

KStars can hide objects and allsky overlays when I move my view. Is it possible to activate this feature for zoom too? The DSS colored allsky overlay (very cool feature btw) is activated on my computer which makes the zoom very laggy (even on my notebooks i7 cpu) and I zoom too far in/out. There are no problems if I deactivate the overlay.

Hi,

some weeks ago I was looking for C/2016 R2 (PANSTARRS) in KStars but I couldn't it. So I checked the comets.dat and it seems there are only ~443 comets in the list which are all periodical. So I looked up the JPL query and there is a filter on ksutils.cpp:1253

QByteArray query("obj_group=all&obj_kind=" + kind + "&obj_numbered=num&OBJ_field=0&ORB_field=0");

obj_numbered is set to "num" which means there are only official named comets selected:

And finally, the numbered state can be "numbered" (meaning the object has been officially numbered by the IAU) or "unnumbered"
( ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/?help_sbdb_query )


I just changed obj_numbered is to "all", recompiled and got about ~3500 comets. There should be an option (checkbox?) to add non-periodic comets to the list.

Indeed, he Pro model only removes the additional glow on USB 2.0 ( zwoug.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=7543 ).
At first I had some dark corners after dark calibration but there was just a problem with the right temperature (-17°C instead of -20°C). Now, with same settings/temperature, the glow is gone :)

ZWO released an ASI 1600 Pro two weeks ago that has an DDR memory buffer to solve the amp glow problem. But there won't be an upgrade for 1600MM-Cool to Pro ( zwoug.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=7528 ). I bought the camera about a month ago, so maybe I will ask my dealer if there is an option to replace it with the new Pro model.

Yes, the fan is active and the temperature changes. It gets up to ~37K below ambient temperature. I got the ZWO power supply some days ago but the glow is still visible :(
