Without using PHD (or Metaguide) have any of you used 10Micron's comet tracking feature ?

How is it done ? Loading ephemerides to mount ?

Or can you use Cartes du Ciel for this ?

Hi einarin,

 

I did it two times. Use the mount with model and without guiding. You could use a downloaded *MPC file with the data of the comet. Download it to the mount, select the comet in the hand controller, start slewing and following, that's all. Straigth forward.
