Re: Mach2 Unguided imaging results from last night

That really depends more on the scope you are using vs the modeling software and encoder system. On a refractor you can get extremely long subs with a very small model. On an SCT you can build very large models if you desire but the nature of those scopes can limit the exposure length on their own.

I personally use an 82 point model for all of my imaging. That seems to work perfectly well for me. The only problem I encounter is the lag in plate solving due to APPM not supporting lighter weight plate solving solutions like ASTAP or PS2.

Rolando, any suggestions on how many data points (in general) should be enough with APPM?
