I'm just starting out and trying to keep the costs low for now so no new laptop at this point. Besides, I'm still not sure what I want in the long run (ASIAir Pro, StellarMate, or PC).
I have an older MacBook Pro (Mid 2009) running OS X El Capitan. I'm going to start with this for now.
I have Parrallels 14, running Windows 10 64-bit because APT does not have a Mac version.
My question is if I should install PHD2 in the same Win 10 instance and run both apps from there or would it be better (if even possible) to run PHD2 natively on the Mac while still running APT via Parrallels?
I'm pretty sure that native PHD2 (in MacOS) would generally be better and if I didn't need APT for image capture from my Nikon DSLR; that is to say if I ran only Mac apps, then I would have my answer. I know I could "buy" AstroDSLR but I'd like to stick with APT.
Since I'm already running Parrallels and that instance is consuming most of the system resources, maybe it's better to have both in Win10.
