Solar tracking mode on ASIair.

Please consider adding the ability to do solar tracking of the Sun.

This would be a wonderful addition as I do a lot of time lapse videos of the Sun with a Coronado Solar scope.

Thank you Sam, That would be great.

Two programs I have tried so far are.

http://www.oc-lab.fr

and

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/astroguid ... 7015?mt=12

Both work ok but require a separate PC.

Having this functionality on the ASIAir would be far more convenient.

Regards.

Rob.

Thanks for your suggestions and I will convey your messages to our devs.
BTW, I cannot open the second link that you attached, could you check it again?

Thanks Katherine

The software is called AstroGuider by Cloudmakers and has a solar tracking mode

Ekos (the astro imaging module of KStars) also supports solar tracking.
