Feature Request: Polar Alignment

Post by timfromma » Sun Sep 09, 2018 3:05 am

I know that ASIAIR utilizes PHD2 for autoguiding. It would be extremely helpful if it also utilized the PHD2 polar alignment feature. I still need to bring my laptop for polar alignment but it would be really nice if ASIAIR could take care of this too so I can go truly laptop free.

I second this request.
A precise PA would obviate the need for guiding on fast scopes.

Hi Sam,

Any news on this? It shouldn't be difficult to implement since the source code is freely available on Github!

Do let us know of any updates! I look forward to the day I won't have to take my laptop with me solely so that I can run SharpCap polar alignment routine and literally switch on, PA, switch off and be done in 5 minutes...
