Tracking!

The news is good. I was able to train the PEC on my AP600 using the
autoguider on the ST7. The results are appended. The first column is
DEC and the second is RA. The scale is 1.7 arcsec. per pixel and the
total period covered is approx. 12 minutes. The object was NGC 6946.

For the training session I used a tracking image exposure of 2 sec. and
calibration times of 7 sec. and 7 sec. These results for unguided tracking
are far better than I have gotten without the PEC (see my earlier posts).
