STF8300

Post by gardenfish » Sat Sep 08, 2018 9:42 am

Arrived yesterday. I met guy 1/2 way from LA and sold my 16"dob. When I got back I set it up with the fw and got the filters installed. Then loaded drivers and got it all working through sgpro.

This morning I am working on getting it on the TOA150 and getting spacing figured out for the ff/red. I am going to take darks later and try it out tonight skies willing.

Getting all the info set in SGPRO and getting a profile for the TOA150 and SV70T. The Image scale goes from 1.45"/pixel on the TOA and 3.31"/pixel on the S70T.

I find the easiest way to make new profiles in SGP is to take an existing one that is closest to whet you're going to need rename it and make the necessary changes for the pixel size and other things. That way you don't have to start from scratch and put in things that are the same as the others.

Works for me.
