Re: APCC, APPM pointing model and camera rotation

Thank you Rolando,
I should have phrased the question better. I’m most concerned with unguided exposures rather than pointing. Just wanted to make sure that unguided exposures won’t be affected by camera rotation.
I suppose your answer is the same regarding the camera does not come into the equation.

Pointing is a function between your planetarium program and the mount. You camera does not come into the equation.

Subject: [ap-gto] APCC, APPM pointing model and camera rotation
I’m about to purchase the APCC Pro software from Astro-Physics for my AP1100 mount. I do a have a quick question regarding the pointing model.
Will the model be affected by the rotation of the camera or removing it for maintenance and mounting it again in the same orientation?
What is the impact on pointing, tracking, etc..?
Do I have to recreate the model after such event?
Thank you very much.
