Re: Notified!😍 #mach2gto #Mach2GTO
Hi Ray, thank you for your very fast responses. So if I might ask another follow-on: If I install APCC, and callNo, ASCOM clients always call the AP V2 driver, which can start APCC if it is not already started, then the driver connects to APCC.
Your comment about RA rate correction intrigues me. I didn't realize I needed APCC to be running to get good results.Just running APCC Pro initially won't make a difference in pointing and tracking rate performance. You will need to run APPM to gather data points throughout the sky via plate solving. Once the data points have been accumulated APCC can create a pointing and tracking rate model. Then you will see improvements in tracking and pointing. How much improvement depends on the repeatability and how well the pointing model terms model the telescope and camera setup that you are using.
