Re: APPM model how many points portable?
My 1100 is due this summer so very curious also, as I will set up each night and tear down, often with a C11, sometimes a 4” refractor.
Right now with a MyT I do one large model, then a recalibration each night which takes 10 minutes. I understand that’s not exactly possible with the AP mount.
But spending 90 minutes a night building a model will be a real bummer. Is it a plate solve issue? TSX only takes a second per image to solve. I really do not like TSX in general, and glad to be getting away, but… 90 minutes?
Say it ain’t so!

Subject: [ap-gto] APPM model how many points portable?
Hello, looking for opinions and guidance for how many points to model. There are a lot of topics on this but none of them seem to answer my questions. I set up each time in my backyard in the same place on an ATS portable pier. I'm using
APCC Pro, 1100GTO, Edge 9.25 with OAG and SGP. My pier is within I would estimate the same few inch square each time its set up. I did a 93 point model last time because I knew I would have several nights to image and it worked great. The problem is that
with a couple failed points that went to all sky solve it took well over an hour and a half using SGP and platesolve 2 as my plate solver.
