Carted du ceil


Recommended Posts

My first experience of plate solving was with my SW Star Adventurer and it was a game changer. I used C d C to give me the RA and Dec of the object and after polar aligning the SWSA would keep adjusting the declination till it matched the Dec of the object (plate solve/ adjust /plate solve). Only then would I adjust the RA to find the object. With the DEC correctly set it was easy to turn the scope in RA to near enough the correct bit of sky and do a final couple of plate solves to zero it in.

I found trying to adjust both the RA and Dec after each plate solve was not very efficient time wise.
