  1. The tripod being level makes no difference. The polar axis has to be aligned regardless. I would suspect that the polar scope reticle is not aligned in the polar scope. I use to scope to make sure the polar axis is roughly aligned and then sharpcap to align.
  2. Let me know if it doesn't sell as I would be interested.
  3. Startools is regularly updated. +1 from me. I stack in DSS Process in Startools. Tweak in Gimp The image attached is doing just this.
  4. Many thanks. I have been using ascom apt sharpcap on a laptop with 15m usb 3 lead and was just trying an alternative. Sounds like I should stick with my current setup.
  5. Forgive my terminology but when using Astroberry when running Kstars on a remote (to the rasp pi) pc images can take a number of seconds to download. For my ASI1600 this is about 5s. Does this sound average (obviously WiFi dependent)? Also do people run like this or do they run EKOS on the Pi?
  6. I would suggest that many ppl would want just a rotator and not necessarily a derotator, that would simplify things. Fantastic job. Well impressed.
  7. You should go into production. I would buy one.
  8. ASTAP has a free ccd inspector feature.
  9. Works fine for me. If you examine the log it will tell you why the frame hasn't stacked. It is usually because it couldn't align or maybe the fwhm threshold has been exceeded. You can turn off all of these featires to get it to stack. I also notice you are guiding. It could be because it is not connected to PhD.
  10. Second telescope I brought was a 12" Dark Star dobsonian. Many happy nights starhopping. Amazing when you think I saved up for it whilst working a Saturday job for 9 pounds a day.
  11. Does anyone have recommendations for a 12v 10amp regulated power supply suitable for use outdoors? I need this to power an EQ6, zwo 1600 camera dew bands and zwo eaf
  12. The link for this does not seem to work. I am interested in this.
  13. I have used plywood and cable ties for holding stuff as power and usb hubs.
  14. This looks excellent. I am thinking something very similar. However I am cautious of condensation. What are your ventilation plans?
