Hi Tom,As a future feature I'm planning to add sound effects so that asyou adjust themount closer PEMPro will beep faster and higher pitched until youreach thecorrect position. This allows you to make the adjustments right atthe mountwithout having to go back and forth from the PC.I got a chuckle out of this, as a similar feature has been in ECU
No offense taken!
I wasn't aware that ECU uses sound but I'm guessing it's not for the same
purpose. I'm guessing in ECU it is used to signal how close you are pointing to
a target object by reading the scope coordinates. Is that correct? In PEMPro's
case you are doing the opposite... while you adjust the mount's altitude or
azimuth to achieve better polar alignment the scope coordinates do _not_ change.
PEMPro has to take a picture, get the star(s) centroid coordinates and update
the sound based on how far it is away from the theoretical target position. And
to make matters fun, until the user finishes adjusting the mount, drift is
occurring so the target position is changing!!! :-)
