Re: Interesting Behavior with APCC Pro and Pegasus Astro UPBv2

Great. I'm looking forward to it.

On the subject of automation, does APPM have any kind of an API that would make it possible to invoke it from a script with the sample points for the target? Alternately, is the definition of the PNT file format defined so that I could write my own routine to solve a bunch of points on the declination arc?

Thanks,

Hi Wade,

Can I do dec-arc modeling with the current APPM version? Is it as
simple as making a model with just a bunch of points on my target's
declination? Or do I need to wait for the next CP4 firmware and accompanying APCC release to use it?
The Dec-Arc modeling feature has been well tested for over a year and a half. As mentioned previously, it will be in APCC Pro version 1.9, which will be available soon.

The Dec-Arc modeling does not require a change to the way APPM operates. By default APPM can collect data points along declination arc paths. It is APCC Pro that implements the Dec-Arc tracking feature, which can be turned on and off at run-time with a single checkbox.
