    Default What aquisition software?



    I use a dslr to image so I use backyard eos for my camera and control my scope with eqmod. Phd2 for guiding.

    I am looking for a software that will do everything and even let me schedule my night. For example I would tell it to image one target for 2 hours and then slew to another target and image that for 2 hours. Anything do that? I am looking APT right now. Any help would be welcome.

    SGP (Sequence Generator Pro) will do exactly that. Plus it will let you target your images using existing photos on Astrobin, and it will plate-solve to get perfect framing. If you have an ASCOM driver for your camera, it will work.

    yeah the only issue with that is I currently use a dslr and there no ascom drivers for dslrs. maybe time for an upgrade.

    the other good thing about SGP, there are a lot of us here who use it and know lots of the ins and outs and some of its quirks, so help is pretty much always at hand..

    The move from DSLR to CCD/CMOS is a big step and does warrant some good consideration. But, if you are getting more and more into this hobby, then its one of those steps which is inevitable... and you can be assured the results are well worth it :-)

    If you don't want to upgrade your camera just yet, think of APT as SGP - lite.

    It will do all that you asked in your first post. Plus it is way less expensive than SGP. Don't get me wrong, SGP is an awesome program, but for DSLR AP you can do everything you need with APT. I own it and use it whenever I image.

    Cheers,
    JT
