Quote:I remember when I was renting on GRAS (now iTelescopes). The typical pointing accuracy, even with the T-Point modeling, the fixed observatory, etc. etc. etc. was about 1' to 2'. The reason I know this is because as part of the workflow, after a slew, the GRAS software would plate-solve and display how far off the pointing was. And these were Paramount ME's.
Quote:Not yet! I have a guider I am going to add to the setup soon. It's a new pier and observatory I am now at the stage of aligning the mount before I start imaging.
