Successful trial of AzTrak!

Filed under: Software — Dave @ 12:46 pm

I know there are a lot of users waiting for DSSR to be able to autoguide Alt-Az scopes using AzTrak. The good news is that the DSSR test version now has a working version of AzTrak which is accurate enough for Solar System targets.

AzTrak autoguided on a sunspot with a Celestron Nexstar 4SE for several hours yesterday and we are currently fine tuning the AzTrak algorithms to improve accuracy. We hope to release AzTrak very soon.

Here are some sunspot videos made with AzTrak

Sunspot AR1476 6th May 2012 6:49:49 to 7:37:16 (UT)

Sunspot AR1471 6th May 2012 6:21:10 to 6:45:34 (UT)
