Re: Astrotortilla vs SGP

I was able to get APM downloaded and SGP knows where it is. The UCAC3 zip file i downloaded. then when i open it it stays in download, im unable to show SGP where it is on my computer. Any idea where i steered wrong ? Also I'll be using a DSLR if that makes a difference.

Thanks

Re: Astrotortilla vs SGP

Maybe I'll download SGP and try it out with the free 45 day trial. Anyone have a good link to a set up procedure for platesolving w/SGP ?

Thanks

Astrotortilla vs SGP

Hey guys, Astrotortilla is frustrating me to no end. Is SGP platesolving easier to set up and use than Astrotorilla ? Or should i save my money and continue trying to figure out Astrotortilla ?

Re: Post your deals

I might be looking to sell my scope/mount and all, money is getting short and i really only have used for visual observing. You can see pictures of it on page 9 of post a picture of your rig.
Anyone interested let me know.
