Quote: ...Our new approach takes advantage of the ASCOM platform version 6 and the ability to simply poll the telescope driver for current altitude and azimuth as well as polling current sidereal time, telescope location and elevation - all keys to successful de-rotation rate calculation. Jordan's solution works as an ASCOM local server for both mount and rotator control. Once configured de-rotation takes place automatically upon completion of a slew making this step semi-transparent to the end user. Slew to your object and the Pyxis immediately begins de-rotating at the proper rate. We will be posting more information on the Optec website next week with screenshots and additional details. We're pretty excited that this new solution will make longer exposure imaging with large alt-az dobs easier that ever. Jeff Dickerman Optec, Inc.
