alacant replied to the topic 'ST4 vs pulse guiding?' in the forum. 3 months ago

 

Hi
ST4 was the name given to a box marketed by SBIG in or around 1990. It automated some guiding processes. 
These days, the box has been replaced by electronics inside guide cameras which do the same thing.

If you've a choice, go with direct mount-computer connection. The main advantage for us being that you calibrate once and re-use that same calibration; no need for aux-mounts or extra cables.
Cheers and HTH

@VIN
Centre your framed target -right click > centre and track- in kstars' and in the scheduler tab, hit the little '+' symbol as indicated to enter the coordinates of your centred target. Call it anything.
That's it.

alacant replied to the topic 'Wishlist: MORE FAILURE, PLEASE!' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hi
A work-around is to set a job for say, 6 frames and hit the scheduler 'repeat for' button. That triggers an align every 6 (or whatever) frames. If it's really cloudy, lower the repeat number.
Cheers and HTH.

Hi everyone
kubuntu 20.04 
git from yesterday
sextractor from yesterday, needed to build the git
I still have indilib and 3rd. party from the stable ppa.

They all see to happen after a sextractor align: kstars disappears from screen. Easy to find in the logs as it's the last few lines.

Could anyone help?
TIA and clear skies,
Steve

Hy

Here is your new code from the git yesterday. I'm not sure how I'd test it but here's the log anyway:
drive.google.com/file/d/1BAUAv4ItJ-mWO0Y...DT-/view?usp=sharing
All goes well until right at the end where indi closed the session. I had to go back to the stable version to finish it but I don't think this is your bit of the code.-.

Oh, and MANY congratulations to whoever smoothed the guiding plot in the guide tab from those dreadful square waves.
