Re: Image problems with my 183 MC Camera with SharpCap Pro

Thanks, I turned Turbo USB speed down to 50 and so far it has been good (over 10,000 frames captured today in a timelapse and no issues)


I have the latest software from ZWO and I think the problem was caused by a Turbo USB setting of 100.

ASIAir corrupting my guide settings on iOptron Smart EQ PRO+ mount

I use my ASI air on a small iOptron Smart EQ Pro + mount. After doing the recent update to 1.4 it seems to be corrupting the guide settings in my mount. I have them at the default of 0.5 x Sidereal and it works fine using PHD2 this way. When I connect the ASIAir to the mount and use the iPad to upda...

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

Re: Solar tracking mode on ASIair.

Thanks Katherine

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

It is also on the apple store.

Re: Solar tracking mode on ASIair.

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.

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.
