Dec-Arc Tracking in APCC Pro v1.9 - an explainer please?
I am interested in hearing how the new Dec-Arc feature in v1.9 works.
I set up my mount for each session. I always know my object in advance of setup so I then run an abbreviated model which contains about 3 or 4 lines which bracket the declination of my object for the night.
This has been working great for me for about a year now at focal lengths of 380mm and 540mm.
The image below is an example of how I would set up a modeling run for an object at +60 degrees decination:
I have looked in the on line help file for APCC Pro and APPM and only see mention of the Dec-Arc feature in the "New Features" section.
So, my question is: How do I implement this new feature other than setting the check box? Does the Dec-Arc feature still require a "standard" APPM modeling run such as what I have been doing above? Lastly, if I have already performed a APPM mapping run, then how will the Dec-Arc feature benefit me?
Thanks in advance for the help.
