Re: How Accurate Is the GoTo Feature of APCC for Imaging
Frankly, at a cost of $0 and maybe 45s of my nightly imaging time...it's "accurate enough". :)If you are doing one alignment per night and can rely on autoguiding instead of a corrected tracking rate (to reduce autoguider movements), you can certainly get away with doing that.
Now, if you are doing a supernova search, or many objects per night, the time to do plate solves and autoguiding setup will add up. :-)
