Re: AP 1200 - Robotic Capabilities
Hi Mark,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In comparing TPOINT (TheSky) and ACP (PinPoint), did you use TheSky Controlled-Telescope driver for both? i.e. ACP (Pinpoint) to control the mount via TheSky (without TPOINT) and ACP (without PinPoint) to control the mount via TheSky (TPOINT enabled).
My point of view is that TPOINT may have better pointing accuracy if the mapping run could be built via ACP with its consistent approach slewing. ACP with its consistent approach slewing may add more precision when using with the PinPoint engine than just using TheSky and TPOINT in standalone mode (without consistent approach slewing).
A more detail explanation of how you have done this comparaison will be very appreciated.
Any comments are welcome.
I did an experiment with the AP 1200 mount and T-point and ACP to see what
