  1. Hi guys, With new mount and upgraded scope features, now looking to venture into imaging. Before I start, I'm not looking to get feedback on polar alignment, mono guidecam, better imaging cameras, etc; this is more a 'dummies guide' setup discussion! I'm not expecting to get great images at this stage, just more the options available, getting over some issues, so that I can jump outside on a clear night with an ideal, foolproof(!), setup for either imaging or visual as time would permit and what may work best for me. As you may guess from the topic name, I'm a mac user (Macbook Pro) and would rather keep to this if possible (whilst I do have Windows (and Ubuntu) via parallels, I'd rather not use these). I've got a setup which has worked well for visual, and obviously want to have a couple of 'staple' setups that I can use depending on expectations of night observing or imaging. So far, the best one for me has been the Skywatcher Wifi Synscan controller, which has worked a treat with my Android phone - I use the Synscan app to complete alignment and GOTO stars/planets/DSO etc, or Stellarium_plus after completing alignment. This removes the need for the Synscan Handset and any USB cables to the mount altogether. But I don't know if this will work for guiding. That then brings me to my issue on mac - connecting USB(A) between Macbook and Handset, I've attempted to control the mount through Stellarium. Trying each of the available connections (/dev/tty.usbsetial-1420, /dev/cu.usbsetial-1420, and just for sake of it, the /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port and /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port) in the dropdown menu under DeviceSettings/SerialPort, I cannot get the mount to connect (well, more like selecting the telescope and clicking the "Start" on the TelescopeControl just results in the spinning icon and I have to Force-Quit Stellarium and start again with the same result each time. Annoyingly (for fellow mac users!), Parallels/Windows/Stellarium connects and controls the mount fine! As the mount is the newer "pro" type, I also have a USB connection directly under the hand-controller RJ45 and AutoGuider ST4 sockets, but using this still results in the same issue. Another issue I have seen is that when I unplug the USB from the computer when connected to the handset, the date on the controller jumps significantly - for example, last night at ~23:30, I was transported through the local wormhole galaxy to Jan 2048 according to Synscan! Obviously unplugging isn't going to happen during a genuine session, but just wondering if this is a possible issue somewhere?! Any other mac users connecting USB directly to the SW 'Pro' mounts? Software wise, would folks generally suggest steering away from Stellarium towards KStars or SkySafari(Plus) for controlling the mount? Can the Wifi dongle be used for controlling mount from computer (any OS) or do I need to go USB either to handset or directly to mount? Is there an issue in using Mac USB to the telescope compared to 'straight' Windows (i.e. PC/laptop with Windows instead of virtual)? Anyway, back to topic... I've a Nikon DSLR to use for primary camera at this stage, which would be triggered independently from guiding software. PHD2 is my hopeful choice of guiding software (is EKOS with KStars similar?), with T7C guide-camera on 240mm f/4 guidescope, and at this stage, I can confirm PHD2 at least connects to the camera on OS-X. There is an ST4 port on the camera, but having read several topics, I think I want to pulse-guide directly - is this correct or is ST4 best for this setup? This sorta comes back to software and connections - my understanding is one of the following cable setups for guiding (as a minimum) : Guiding-camera => USB(A) => Macbook => PHD2 => USB(A) => SynscanHandset => AZEQ6 Guiding-camera => USB(A) => Macbook => PHD2 => USB(A) => AZEQ6 Guiding-camera => USB(A) => Macbook => PHD2 => Wifi => SynscaWifi Adapter on AZEQ6 [using ST4: ST4_on_AZEQ6 => Guiding-camera => USB(A) => Macbook => PHD2] (no additional connections needed if ST4 is used) Additionally, I'd like to use an observatory package, say Stellarium/KStars/SkySafari, to select objects and drive the mount, then use guiding software to keep good 'tracking'. Where in this train does EQMac fit in, or when is it used? What about the 2019 addition to EQMod (ASCOM Alpaca)? Can this be used or is it already in other packages?! For Windows users, how does EQMod fit in (if I go down route of getting Windows laptop for controlling things, is the setup similar to above? There may be bits in the above that repeat, and for that, I'm sorry, just want to get across the message that I'm new to the guiding but haven't quite settled down into the software/hardware I'm expecting to use for 'goto' and 'guiding' TLDR: For a mac user, what setup and software are folks using for guiding and observatory softwares for the newer USB-on-mount 'AZEQ6/EQ6-R Pro' mounts from SW?
  2. 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
  3. Today we published a fresh weekly snapshot of Stellarium (v0.20.2.18140): https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium-data/releases/tag/beta And we need some feedback from users. At the moment we need to know your opinion about changes in 2 plugins - Satellites and Oculars. Of course we'll accept your opinion about changes in other parts of the planetarium too, but those 2 plugins in our focus. Thanks for your attention and testing.
  4. I'm trying to set up Stellarium with my cameras (Canon EOS 1300D and a Canon EOS 2000D) and my telescope (Celestron NexStar 127SLT). I think I've found the correct values for everything like focal length and sensor size etc... but the FoV in Stellarium it is different to what I actually see. I've attached screenshots of the settings, as well as the predicted image and an image I captured using the EOS 1300D and the Celestron NexStar 127SLT (it's not very good, I know). Any help would be much appreciated. (And I apologise if I've posted this in the wrong place - I'm new)
  5. I've always used the web version, but since I got the telescope I decided to install the full desktop version. I managed to save my setup and eyepieces etc. Things that I unable to save and not sure whether I should be able to: - start in Windowed mode - fixed both settings and viewing bars bottom left corner - Object information - I set my 'Customised' options, but after relaunching the app they are lost_ - basic stuff like date format, start-up time (default to 10pm) - I think I can say that NONE of the Configuration [F2] settings save - Sky and viewing options window [F4] - NONE of the options changed here save between sessions The only thing that saves is .. my location. Am I missing a plugin, some sort of trick to save those, should I reinstall or does Stellarium simply not save these F2 and F4 settings between sessions?
  6. Hi SGL, is there any plugin or setting that can (more) accurately depict views through an eyepiece? I'm aware of the oculars, but what I'm after is the shimmer of the planets, dimming of DSOs when using smaller scopes, planetary detail dependent on telescope size etc. Thanks
  7. Hi Everyone, I am trying to setup the off axis guider in stellarium I've entered all details for my QHY5L II and checked the off axis guider box in the config. However, for the love of God I am not able to make the OAG red box appear in the display. No clue whats happening. My main imaging camera is a QHY9M. Any help will be appreciated.

  10. Hi, having recently bought a mobile (cell) phone tripod adaptor, I thought I would have a go at setting up my custom landscape view in Stellarium. I have watched all the videos on YouTube and read all the threads on here and I think I've done everything correctly, but the custom landscape doesn't appear in the list. I have tried this on my laptop (running Vista SP2) and my (very old) PC (running XP SP2). Neither of these work! I have included a screen shot of what I've done. I have obviously forgotten or missed something really basic, but for the life of me I can't see what. Any help/advice would be much appreciated. Thank you & a Ho, Ho, Ho!
  11. 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?

  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 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.
  18. 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

    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. Stellarium 0.13.3 is a stable version that introduces some new features and closes 33 bug and wishlist reports.

  24. 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
  25. 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
