I’ve just bought stellar mate but haven’t had it outside yet, can anyone tell me if there is a polar alignment function on the mobile app. I can see there’s one update in the forthcoming version about an improved alignment but before I bought it the online info seems to suggest it’s part of it and not just on the desktop version which I already use.
Will this new camera revloutionize the astro photography?
By the looks of it - it would gick the polemaster a tough competitor, and that is just the beginning!
I browsed the internet and discovered this new camera, but it looks to be quite a work horse.
The company sais it is wokring with "AI", has multi star guiding, can do polar align for you and also plate solve.
I made a video, covering the main features which it is supposed to have.
I need to have my eye on this company in the future
I am forced to use the drift method alignment from my back garden due to a neighbouring building being between Capella and me. So I have been practising the drift alignment method. I have however ran into a problem, and no amount of googling has provided me with the answer. so I am hoping that someone can help me out in understanding what could be the issue or what I could be doing wrong.
The problem that I am experiencing is that the objects in my viewfinder are drifting backwards. i.e. they are slowing disappearing off my screen on the lefthand side. There is no drift upwards or downwards that I can detect thought. The drift is slow enough to allow me to take a picture of up to around 4 seconds without the stars looking out of shape. But at 10sec or higher, the drift is quite clear.
Does anyone have an idea or suggestion for me to try?
So the little circular bubble level is weak.
But how to improve the levelling stage a head of the alignment stage?
A traditional level like this one
Or a simple multi purpose one like this one?
And we do this on the tripod before adding the mount & OTA?
The mount looks gently curved. How do we check that for level or do we trust the ‘fit’?
