Use the checkbox "local" on alignment panel

What i said before about limitation to 60-90° is wrong :
In fact, you can also use radius option of solver to perform such an alignment (but it is slower...)

I really appreciate you took the time to make the video. I could watch it with the subtitles on and translated to spanish (youtube tool). Is now much clearer for me. I'd have to try it once the weather cooperates here.

This is one of the best responses I've received on the astronomy forums. B)

Best regards,

Alfredo


You're welcome :)

I was not aware that youtube could translate like that : Crazy !

At a declination higher than 60 degrees could work from here.

How big would be the error with this approach?


I don't know !
I've just noticed that when moving ALT/AZ knobs on final step, it's harder to reach target

it was just a one time test :
And I'm affraid i'm not able to reproduce with simulators :S
Impossible to solve first frame whatever i do.
Need to think again to what i've done before ...

I've done polar alignement without polaris yestetday with polar assistant, and it looks to work !....
I've started procedure with my mount pointing to zenith
Then on first frame ekos makes a warning and suggests to slew to polaris : answer no and be carefull...
I suggest to limit rotation to 15°...

It is certainly less accurate, but it works.
Will retry asap

Do think that stacking should be be a feature in Ekos/Kstars, that would be a great addition.

Thanks Gilles for sharing your work.


well... of course !
I've seen it on new webcam driver, very nice
(too bad it's not available for 16.04 to use it with Raspberry Camera...)

Doing that with Siril might be overkill, but i also like it that way :
Each layer doign its own job.

BTW, who can help me to make a simple python script to display RGB fits ?
I've tried with astropy, but i'm lost...
