Great! Thank you for doing that. I just subscribed to a new photo shop and I cannot find where to align the RBG channels. I know it must be there but I have not been able to find it yet. 

Best,

Jim

Hi Jim,

There's actually quite good detail in the image, but the three color channels are not lined up due to atmospheric refraction. I took your image and re-aligned the planes and this is the result:

Re: Strange RA tracking issue with Mach2

Roland Christen
 


I have attached the link to my stars closeup there.
Your image shows trailing stars, not bouncing at the end of a slew. So, I'm not sure if you have a guiding issue (wrong guide parameter settings) or something else. Posting an image without identifying RA/Dec direction also makes it extremely difficult to do any kind of guesswork as to what is happening. Perhaps I'm overlooking something in your original post.

Both George and Howard are always available for consultation for any issues that anyone might have with any of our products. It's best to start with them for complex situations, rather than posting here on our user groups.

I am not saying the two cases have something in common, also because I was trying to image and didn’t follow an analytical approach at the problem.

Subject: [ap-gto] Strange RA tracking issue with Mach2

I've been using the Mach2 in the backyard for a few months now.
I also took it to a dark sky site in (irrc) May 2021, and also had no problems there.

On Sept 5 I took it out to a different dark sky site and had very strange and intermittent RA tracking issues: Trailed stars in what looks like an oscillation pattern.
I've attached a few screenshots to hopefully shed some light on what I'm seeing.

I'm using a 12" SCT-ACF with ~0.5 x reducer for about 1500mm focal length.
Afaict the Mach2 is just about "fully loaded".   
I've been using this setup in the backyard with APCC and APPM without any problems.

This is also after recently updating to APCC Pro 1.9.0.5, but I'm pretty sure I used 1.9.05 in the backyard also, and without any problems.
I'm using SGPro for imaging with APPM and using ASTAP directly from APPM.

One difference at this new site, is the tripod was not perfectly level in the north-south direction, but it was close.
The other difference is the new site has much better horizons than my backyard -- in the backyard there's about 30% of the sky to the zenith blocked in the south and west.

After setting up, and balancing, I used pole-align-max + sharpcap to get polar alignment.

I then went to focus the camera at zenith and start APPM.
When I took a short 10 second image near zenith, I got star trails in the RA direction.

I then pointed near Polaris and did the same exposure... no star trails.  So I focused the camera there.

Here's some things I tried to identify/fix RA star-trail the problem:
- Re-balanced the OTA, 
- Looked for any conflicting software, etc.   I did exit sharpcap, but it wasn't connected to the AP driver.
- Looked for anything loose, e.g. altitude axis clamp, or cable tugging.
- There was zero wind at this site.
- The ground was, I believe, stable... It was mostly dirt and some gravel, but it did not feel spongy under foot.
- At one point I did a complete reboot of the computer and CP5 controller.

One thing I wasn't clear about was some of the APCC/APPM settings:
- For example, the APPM model in use -- e.g. whether the previous model (from the backyard) could be conflicting.   However, I am pretty sure I had the previous APPM model "disabled".
- The horizon and horizon-limits -- I'm pretty sure I had horizon-limits turned off, but it may have been on initially.   I did get a "slew warning" in APPM and I'm not sure exactly why.
- I was thinking the APPM "horizon limit" (ie. the circle defining the edge of the points) was conflicting with the horizon I had defined, but I reduced the APPM circle just a bit and this didn't seem to help overall.
- I also tried stopping tracking to see if something like the horizon limit was turning off tracking and causing the trail -- but with tracking off the same image duration generated a much longer star trail.

Also, I had defined a new site, and new horizon, and was using the new site and horizon.    
The location of the new site was defined by the Astomi.ch GPS box.

I wasn't able to find anything and couldn't fix the odd star-trailing, so I decided to attempt APPM anyhow.
I used a "small" model with the new horizon, which was about 50 points.

The model mostly worked, but some points had the "trailed" stars, and did not plate-solve.
Oddly it seemed some of these points were in the "outside" areas of the "old" horizon; I was thinking the "old" horizon model was getting used, but this theory simply was not consistent.

Anyhow, I did create the model, and went on to image the bubble near zenith for most of the night (no guiding) and it seemed fine.

I've not had a chance to setup the mount since 9/5, but will hopefully have some time to "debug" this mystery later this week (assuming it is reproducible) at home in the backyard.
(I also do not have access to the PC I use with the Mach2 for a few days, but can perhaps pull some archived data from it later this week.)

Has anyone seen something like this and know the root cause?

I’m going to chime in on this one…

I know it’s just a joke and honestly I chuckled, but…

It’s a proven fact that there are different methods by which people learn the best. Undiagnosed learning disorders are very common. We probably know this; so what?

Videos. Especially the basics and common issues. Does NOT have to be cinematic quality. A GoPro and a mic. Covers visual and auditory learners. Quick verbal references to page numbers in the manual covers the readers in the group.

I see how much time is being spent on trouble shooting and I wonder if some of that might be addressed by simply being able to watch a video. It’s one thing to read it, it’s a whole different universe to watch it. Also, it’s much easier to verbally mention extra information and corollaries rather than type out all that text.

Just some food for thought for the group; something I’ve been wanting to suggest and this seemed like a decent opportunity. I’m sure there’s an AV student somewhere who would love the experience.

Best,

Tom

Re: Newbie question about APPM pointing model location

Worsel
 

The models are stored (at least for Win 10) in

C:/Program Data/Astro-Physics/APCC/Models/*.pnt

You can restore ANY model (be aware of the implications) by

1.  Click Pointing Model Tab
2.  Click Model in left hand section
3.  Click File in upper left (the above folder will open) and list all model (*.pnt) files
4.  Select model.

I believe that you can name a model in the folder whatever you want as long as the extension is .pnt

Hello Rolando,

   I attended Stellafane during that decade and saw something like you describe. From a stowed position for travel to fully setup, going through the motions it reminded me of a Transforming Bot. If memory serves, didn't that hydraulic actuated mount also have a telescope on it? If we're thinking of the same mount I think I might have a color slide of it, which I'll scan and post if I can locate it.

you can view the model from the pointing model tab in APCC

from this window you can load prior models. the models themselves are automatically saved after APPM run
