  1. Hello, i am new to this forum, i made my account here because i need help. So few weeks ago i ordered a USB to Serial cable to be able to Control my Telescope with my computer using stellarium. It arrived today. So i made my Star Alignment, then i plugged the cable to my Telescope and Computer, i installed the Cable driver and ASCOM Platform + ASCOM Celestron Driver. I started DriverConnect.exe and put the Celestron Driver i downloaded, and did the properties informations ( had to tick on "Advanced Setup" and "Show All COM Ports" ) and i put "COM8" on "COM Port", then i pressed "OK" and then "Connect" Result: Create Creating device Connected Connecting to device Error System.Exception: Connect to COM1 failed, no Celestron scope detected to System.Dynamic.ComRuntimeHelpers.CheckThrowException(Int32 hresult, ExcepInfo& excepInfo, UInt32 argErr, String message) to CallSite.Target(Closure , CallSite , ComObject , Boolean ) to ASCOM.DriverConnect.ConnectForm.btnConnect_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in C:\ASCOM Build\Export\ASCOM.DriverConnect\ConnectForm.cs:line 268 Dispose Disposing of device ReleaseComObject Releasing COM instance ReleaseComObject Completed release. Count: 0 GC Collect Starting garbage collection GC Collect Completed garbage collection "Connect to COM1 failed, no Celestron scope detected" In Stellarium i set-up everything, the plug-in and restarted the app, then added my telescope and i says it's "connected" but i can't find my telescope. Telescope: Celestron NexStar 127SLT The Cable i bought: https://www.amazon.com/Telescope-CP2102-Adapter-Control-Console/dp/B077G37VL1/ PC Specs: Windows 10 Pro, GTX 970, 8GB Ram(DDR4), i7 6700 3.4Ghz Looking forward for your help, thanks in advance, dragorom7.

  3. So I'm referring to the main astro-softwares that you use during your sessions on your phone or tablet, and found that most of people use mainly those two softwares on their phones. Laptop versions of the software are different products and are not the focus of this topic. So which do you use and why? My experience: I personally have Stellarium plus, and the free version of SkySafarai, so I have an understanding of how the user-interface of both works, I have been researching the extra features in the SkySafari Pro, and have figured the following so far (please correct me if I'm wrong): * I'm aware that both let you control your GoTo telescopes * I personally find current version of Stellarium to be more user friendly and easier to navigate the sky manually , could be the configured settings though * SkySafari has more options to the search bar, e.g. "Tonight's Best" based on your location, also a menu of Messier catalog with a highlight of those currently visible at your time and location, others like best deep sky objects * SkySafari has this wonderful feature of creating an observing list, very helpful to plan your session and share and download with/from others * Stellarium Plus has a database of around 1.69 billion stars,while SkySafari 6 Pro has around 100 milion starts (don't think it's important as most of them aren't visible in amateur telescopes, I think I read somewhere that only 25 million stars are possible to observe with our telescopes, up to 15th mag, wonder if any of you have tried to push this limit)

  6. OK, my second guide, this took a bit more thinking about cos I haven’t used Stellarium before but I wanted a ‘single device’ option as my other stuff is IOS. I will be using this with my Canon tethered to the PC by an active usb cable so I can do pretty much everything (bar focussing) indoors when it’s too cold outside! Anyway, this how I did it. If there is a better way I am happy to update this guide. Let me know. Hopefully this is straight forward cos there isn’t a lot of info on how to do this all in one place! I’ve had this working indoors this PM so I’m really excited to try it at night now. Note that you need to be connected to the SynScan WiFi network to control your scope. 1. Download & install Stellarium (I’m using v18) – do not run at this point 2. Download & install Stellarium Scope (I’m using v2016.12.26.330) – do not run at this point 3. Download ASCOM software & install (I used ASCOM Platform63) – do not run at this point 4. Download ASCOM driver from Skywatcher & install 5. Download and install SynScan App (it will run either Alt Az or Eq mounts as needed) 6. Connect to SynScan WiFi & open SynScan app, settings, WiFi and select Access Point mode (which is what I used as it seemed most straight forward). Add naming and security as needed. Note that the unit ‘resets’ to factory settings if powered up and unaccessed for 24 hrs (I have also seen this as 1 hr but haven’t tried it). 7. OPTIONAL TEST STEP OTHERWISE GO TO STEP 8. In settings set to ‘emulator’ if you want to test first. Go back to main screen and ‘connect’ – you will need to select eq or alt az. Note: you can do this part without the WiFi adaptor as it is only testing the software. Go to step 9. 8. In settings, select UDP, go back to main screen and connect (select eq or alt az). Do a star align if you are ready and leave running. 9. Run ASCOM diagnostics, tools, telescope chooser .net – select SynScanMobile Telescope in dropdown box. You may have to select and exit properties before ‘OK’ is enabled. 10. Open Stellarium Scope. Accept the disclaimer, select mount as ASCOM.Synscanmobile.Telescope and connect. 11. Label your Telescope on this screen if you want and then select update Stellarium. Accept all the warnings. If you want to customise further look in ‘options’ for auto start of Stellarium etc. You may need to update Stellarium again via this screen if you change anything. 12. Open Stellarium. It should now be ready with your scope. If you scroll around the reticle should be on the star you last aligned. You are now good to go! Select something in Stellarium and press CNTL and 1 together. Your scope should slew to the new target. Conversely, if you select something on the SynScan App it will show in Stellarium. 13. If you did this all in test mode and have a SynScan WiFi connected you should now be able to go to step 8. You do not need to do the other steps again apart from restarting Stellarium Scope and Stellarium. I have Stellarium auto open in options so I just click on StellariumScope. Hope that helps anyone interested. I’m happy to update this as needed, or do pics if required. PS I’m running this on a Win10 Dell Laptop - I have experienced a ‘form error’ bug when looking up stars in the SynScan App but that maybe because I moved the folder to a new location so it can’t find a library or something. It’ll be interesting if anyone else gets this. This does not affect the running in Stellarium so I’ve ignored it for now and will recheck later. UPDATE: 19/04 - I raised this with SW app team. It appears there is a DB missing from the v1.9 zip (previous versions are fine), they are rectifying asap - so it wasn’t me!! ?

  9. Hi, I'm totally New to this hobby and i'm having trouble understanding something in stellarium. I have ordered (not recieved) a Sky-Watcher Explorer 150PDS, which has a 25mm eyepiece 50degrees FOV as a default. I also have a Nikon D810. I wanted to get an idea of what my field of view would be with the 25mm eyepiece (30x on 750mm focal length), and also what it would be With my Nikon D810 mounted shooting prime Focus - no eyepieces. What surprised me was that it wasnt much difference between the frame and size of the object i get with 30x magnification (25mm eyepiece), and what i get with the Nikon D810 mounted. I dont get this. What magnification do i get With my DSLR mounted with no eyepiece?

  13. Dear Stellarium users, in last binary snapshot (v0.90.0.8774 - https://launchpad.net/stellarium/trunk/0.90.0) we introduced finally support of time zones dependent by locations. We really want test this feature - please help us. Thank you!
  14. Hi SGL, I am wondering if there is a way to rotate the display in Stellarium by 90 degrees anti-clockwise. That way I can match my camera view with Stellarium (see attachment image). At the moment I have to take a print screen and rotate it in another program, which is a bit of a faff when trying to locate a dim fuzzy. I know about the flip horizontal/vertical buttons in Stellarium but no combination of them produces a 90 rotation. Maybe this is a silly question but if i rotate my camera 90 degrees clockwise, will I get matching views? I guess this depends on which way the camera flips the image after taking the shot. Many thanks, Dan.
  15. Hi, After using Stellarium on my tablet for helping me find stuff with binoculars. I was wondering on the PC version is it possible to see the FOV through a certain telescope? Have been using something similar https://astronomy.tools/ but was wondering if it’s possible in stellarium . I know there is a telescope tab but not sure how it works, I was wondering if there are any other programs like this that you recommend . Any help will be appreciated PS Sorry if I e posted this in the wrong section.
  16. Hello, I am trying to control my Heq5 pro via SynScan (ver 3.10) with Stellarium (on MS Win10, 64 bit). I got the proper cable and adapter to connect to the usb port (via an adaptor for the RS-232). In Stellarium I follow the instructions to add a telescope / configure / add new telescope but when I get at the level of the device settings (see image), the field to select the port is blank and cannot be edited. I know I am using port : Port_#0001.Hub_#0004 (from checking the device manager) on my laptop. I tried installing Ascom but I still can't find the port there neither. I tried using a different port #3 but same issue. Anyone knows a work around the issue? Thank you \\
  17. Hi All, Recently in my effort to image Pluto, I used Stellarium to locate its position and compare the star fields with my image. I finally succeeded but my effort was made more difficult by a star that was visible in Stellarium near HIP 94372, but absent in my image Pluto Image post. On checking further I concluded that the error was in the NOMAD catalog used by Stellarium. If this is indeed the case does anyone know how this error can be reported and corrected? Best

    Pluto?

    Hi All, With some difficulty using Stellarium to compare star fields, I believe that Pluto is the spot marked in my image below. It is a single 20'' exposure taken using a Canon 700D DSLR at ISO 800 and my CPC 1100. I stretched, tweaked the curve and used the noise reduction feature in GIMP. I am hoping to take another image today to see if that spot has moved in relation to the other stars. My problem was that I had difficulty comparing the star fields in my image and that from Stellarium (screen shot below). The ocular view and the sensor frame view of Stellarium were useful but I discovered that my difficulty in matching the stars arose because the bright star next to HIP 94372 does not exist in my image. I thought of digging into star catalogues before posting but thought I may get an answer from the forum more quickly. My bet is that it may be an error in the catalogue Stellarium uses. Look forward to hearing all your thoughts.

  20. Good evening, it is normal that on the constellation of the scorpion there is a form of square on Antares, Oph and Jabbah? it's like there's a cut and paste, Thank you
  21. Hello all Can I ask what is the current thinking and methods on the following things. There seems to be some really old YouTube videos of how to control your mount and control your camera but I would like to hear what is the latest wisdom on the following: Eq6 Mount Control? Stellarium? Eqmod? Handset? Bluetooth? Canon camera exposure control. Aptool? Intervalometer? Laptop? iOS app??? Is that even possibile? I have a Eq6 pro but I would love to know what the most current way of doing these things are. It's mainly for imaging. Bring me me up to date please! Thanks Gerry
  22. Hello, So I thought I would share some screen shots of my XP SP3 Virtual Machine that I have setup for Astro Imaging. The nice thing about putting all the software into a Virtual Machine is that I can move it about between different laptops. VMware also allows you to remotely connect and disconnect USB sockets, which is hand when you want to restart a usb camera. Lastly I can put the VM to sleep and start it up so as to keep everything as is. Some screen shots of the different aspects of the VM with a custom red theme. EQMOD, Astro Tortilla, PHD2 EQMOD, Stellarium (Stellarium Scope to control EQMOD) EQMOD, APT (Focus aid and other tools) Hope you take some inspiration
  23. Hi, I'm deperately looking for a telescopes.json file created by the Stellarium TelescopeControl plugin (and maybe a points.json as well ... don't know what that is for, though). The file(s) is/are normally located in $HOME/.stellarium/modules/TelescopeControl/ (Linux, I think it's a similar directory in Windows or MacOS). The files could be created in Windows and then copied to my Linux folder, but I don't have a native Windows machine and issues with the emulated one as well. Background: Stellarium won't let me add my telescope, as the configuration dialog won't disappear when pressing the OK button (see here for details: https://sourceforge.net/p/stellarium/discussion/278769/thread/fae0bc91/). According to the mentioned forum post this situation can be resolved by copying the telescopes.json (and maybe points.json) into the telescope plugin folder. I've searched the internet over and over, but cannot find copies of that files. Would be great if someone could share them with me. I'm aware that I will have to edit the files to fit my setup, but without knowing what the fies look like, I don't know where to start. Also, if anyone has had the same issue with the "Add telescope" dialog not closing in Stellarium, please share your solution, if different from what I'm aiming for. Thanks in advance, Peter
