Re: Mach2 Unguided imaging results from last night

Rolando, any suggestions on how many data points (in general) should be enough with APPM?
It depends on the equipment you are using, especially repeatability.

With only 42 points last night I was able to get 30-minute unguided images in several different sections of the sky with just a pixel or so trailing with my A-P Traveler and STT-8300.

I'm waiting for a couple adapters from Precise Parts to push the limits since the STT-8300 I recently bought on Astromart has a full set of narrowband filters. My San Jose skies would blow out my unfiltered images in 30 minutes, so that limited the duration that I could test.
