Please continue to ask about 10Micron model building and related stuff on this thread.
The old thread can be found here ....https://www.cloudyni...n-mount-models/
So we were last talking about the meaning of the model RMS values and how that might affect tracking as well as pointing accuracy ....
So topics would include:
The process of building models - either using support software, or doing it manually; the meaning of modeling terms; periodic errors; the effects on non-rigidity in your system; the orgins of non-rigidity - tripods, cables and felt etc.; refractors versus reflectors; refraction data - and where to source it; timing clocks - gps versus inet sourced atomic clocks, model effects on tracking (includes refraction compensation); guided versus unguided tracking - and how the model might help or hinder; hybrid guiding - for exposures exceeding the 10Micron quoted limits; how dithering is supported by 10M etc etc; plus any issue that you think relates to model building / model use - we can help decide if it related or not.
All the above stuff and more works its way back to the use of absolute encoders and the pointing models built on top
