  1. Hi Ian. I use Induino MeteoStation for weather in combination with WounderGroundWeather. Both work with IndiLib https://indilib.org/support/tutorials/177-howto-configure-compile-wire-print-and-assemble-the-induino-meteostation.html The Odroid I use for imaging and the RasPi does most of controll and GPIO. GPIO support on the Odroid is not as good as the raspi. Also, the raspi has only 100mb/s network. I'm lucky that the observatory has a bandwidth of 300mb/s, so I get the images down faster with the Odroid. I use this driver https://indilib.org/support/tutorials/165-diy-auto-indi-telescope-cover.html with my 3d printed dustcap. Works quite well :) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2307397
  2. Hi Ian :) I'm happy to see that you found this thread useful. A couple things to add after having some experience using the obsy. 1. I should have figured out how to connect my mount to the 'portable' pier before casting it. I could have saved some cash by using the existing pattern for the pier-plate, and not have to get it customized. 2. I made the height of the pier, the obsy walls and the roof so that the entire mount and scope clears the walls. I did this to have a clear view to the horizon, witch I have never needed or used. I would rather make the obsy wall height and the roof 'height' so that the park position of the mount is less critical. 3. The Orion StarShot Autoguider has issues with INDI. I've been planning to replace it, but have not got around to it. Having a autoguider that calibrates on each try, makes a lot of the 'smart' functions of EKOS work a lot better. For starting with linux, I would just get a copy of Ubuntu and install it on a old PC or Laptop to get familiar with setting up and installing INDI. For later you would most likely like to have it on a raspi, odroid or even a small PC, running just the serverside and no gui, then connect to it from your desktop or so. The goto page to get everything installed https://indilib.org/forum/general/210-howto-building-latest-libindi-ekos.html Having a obsy makes starting an evening of imaging, and ending it later, SO much more enjoyable. No 30 mins to an hour setting up and calibrating, just booting up and done. I have the obsy dry enough, that I keep all the gear in during summer, when it's to bright to image anything. All gear looks good, with very little dust at all.

  4. I see there is a 30 day trial, so I'll have a go soon I do like the pix insights way of doing it all, but it cannot be perfect on all types of processing, I guess.
  5. Thanks Theres only slightly more than two hours of data, but it's good enough to keep for future expansion. If I get the mosaic done, then I might start on a SHO later. (Probably not this year, but I'm not getting bored anytime soon )
  6. Ok I see. I did not know there was a way around this. I think something like this could be integrated in Pix insight as it sounds exactly what the mosaic gradiant merge tool does. If all the subs that had the same orientation was stacked together and then merged, it should work. This is to much work doing manually, but nice to know APP can do it.
  7. Im using pix insight for the entire processing. I usually get some stacking artefacts whit subs from both side of the meridian. However I had no space left to crop this image, or I would have lost some of the nebula. The mosaic version I'm working on has overlap, so this should not be an issue. I think that it might be. I'll look up conesharp, and see if it does the trick.
  8. Thanks. I think this for some reason happens when I mix subs from before and after the meridian. Not sure why, as I have spent my time on polaraligment this year, and nothing to fix there.
  9. So I started a while back on my first mosaic Soul to Heart nebula. With this weather I'm not sure that I get the chance of finishing any time soon, so I decided to process the Ha data for the Heart nebula. I have some stacking issues on top left, and right + bottom left corner. I have successfully removed similar before in GIMP, but I'm not sure I managed this time. Usually those type of artefacts are more diffuse, and not so visible. If anyone have tips on removing those, then please share. Specs 2h 10min of 300sec subs on my ASI 1600mm-cool @ Unity and -30c with the Equinox 80 Let me know what you think. Best regards, Magnus.
  10. I got it None offence taken. If we weren't more hardy than that, we would not survive winter!
  11. Welcome to the club! I have a feeling you would have to search long and hard to find a truly intelegent 'flat earth' 'discussion'....
  12. I'm sorry. Guess I miss read that. You know I'm Norwegian? Ever heard of 'Janteloven'. All Norwegians / Scandinavians live and die by this. It's translated https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Jante PS. I do not speak on behalf on any other Norwegians or Scandinavians than myself.
  13. In a infinite number of multiverses there will allways be one identical to this, where I shared the joke seconds, or milliseconds before I did here
  14. Don't wait arround to make kontakt. The truth is out there. I'm not a comedian. This whole ordeal made me look at more youtube videos. There is apperently a firmament we should look out for! I guess I'm a glober at heart.
  15. So. Just to 'round' things up, and get back down to 'flat earth'. The video I posted here was sort of funny, but close to violate 'code of conduct' To avoid this being a negative entry in this otherwise funny thread, I have removed it. If you still want to watch it, then search YouTube for VwNYcEleUUY
