Thanks for confirming.

That will work for model building, but you need the current temperature as you are imaging, so you really need a way where the temperature is updated on a consistent basis.

the modeling adjusts based on temp at time of modeling and current temp when imaging

I don't own an environmental sensor that interfaces directly with my computer but I manually enter current temperature and barometric pressure from my backyard weather station into the APCC-Pro Pointing Model tab when I run a model.  The data is pulled through to APPM and I assume used in the calculation of the pointing and tracking model.  Is this assumption correct?

Per my chat with Ray, having accurate temperature data is THE most important thing.

HI Marcelo

Temperature does have some impact on the modeling (talking with Ray on this) so you might consider having an environmental sensor in there like an MGBox V2

OK, thank you very much. Good to know. :)
My telescope is an Esprit 100, so I guess I don't need an atmospheric pressure detector at the moment.
