Quote:does sky safari integrate with your mount for tracking of such objects like these or comets?
Quote:I'm going to be attempting to track a nearby star and capture the motion of it as it passes thru the fov, since I know I won't be able to track it.
Quote:Are these pictures straight from a planetarium program?

Quote:there was an update to skysafari pro this morning which is supposed to take into account the gravitational effects on asteroids. i don't know how up-to-date the ephermeris is for 2012 DA14 but the orbit does seem a little different than the screenshots above.
