Re: Point Mapping Strategies for the Mobile Imager

Hi Dean,

I use the two line mapping cause we have always different setups. We are working with a AP3600 with normaly two telescopes mounted. But then other peoples came and put their Teleskopes also on  the mount. A normal full sky mapping would take to long. Thats why I tested the two line mapping. Normally when a setup is not beeing changed every time you should better build and reuse a full sky mapping. 
Yes the two lines are bracketing the declination of the objekt.

I have done that with a two line mapping. Worked fine. 
Konstantin, when you say "two line mapping", I am assuming those two lines are bracketing the declination of the object you are intending to image that night, correct?  

I didn't get a response from anyone as to whether there is inherently anything wrong with doing a special abbreviated map focused on the single object to be imaged that night.  However, it seems like [purely guesswork on my part] this is similar to what is being incorporated into the new keypad software.
