NINA question.  If I change telescopes, C8 to refractor, is there an easy to create a "profile" for the telescope?  Under Options/Equipment/Telescope. there are parameters to enter focal length, focal ratio, etc... but is there an easy way to switch back and fourth between scopes and quickly load up each scopes info?

 

Thanks

You can create as many profiles as you want.  Options tab on the left, profiles at the top, you can add them there, and name them on the right side under General.  Also under General click the "Profile Chooser on Startup" to on so you will be prompted when you start up which to use.

 

Essentially everything is separate in the profiles, so you will have to then keep stuff updated for things that remain the same, e.g. camera and imaging options.
