AZ GTi and Astroberry / Ekos alignment


Recommended Posts


I have Astroberry controlling my AZ GTi + camera quite well, but have a question about alignment for any of you with a similar setup.  

Do you still use the SynScan app to perform an alignment routine before switching over to Ekos? Or do you just use Ekos straight away with go to and plate solving?

The documentation seems to say either option is possible:

Ekos is autonomous - by plate-solving it is doing its own alignment and doesn't 'need' any other app.

The ability of Ekos to 'solve and slew' means that it doesn't need the first slew to be precise (which is what something like a two-or three-star alignment is trying to provide) - it syncs after the first platesolves and is then aligned for that target.
