Considering Tool in Beta, feedback about test will be really appreciated.

I can suggest just a little feature that could be useful as the following:
add an option to enable the calculation of the adjust angle in “modulo division of 180 degrees” for rectangular sensors(e.g. on a rectangular sensor it does not matter if the image is rotated by 180 degrees, the rotation and alignment of the frames will in charge of the alignment/stacking software). The same reasoning could by applied to square sensors and obviously in this case the calculation could be performed in “modulo division of 90 degrees”.

Thank I will add settiing to use or not a module and a setting to define module

All the best

Hello Leo
what is the new mod for AO homing ?

Modified the home centering calling only the center method and no star reacquire like for the other kind of controls. No documentation about and no answer from SB. I cannot test under the sky so… really difficult.

All the best
Leonardo

I sent also it to SB about the tilt 100 issue after some time…
I will revert if I got any news…

Tilt at 100% mean something wrong on bumping settings. Check your TSX settings.

All the best
Leonardo

Default Mode:

Module 180°:

Module 90°:

Green circle evidence the angle used for alignment.
Thank you so much for the idea Andrea, I will pubblish a 2.3.1ja version.

All the best
Leonardo

Super fast implementation!!! I will try it during the next week.

Thank you

That is an excellent looking tool, I am lucky in that rotating my camera does not seem to upset anything tilt wise so I do it reasonably often. It was not all that difficult just by plate solving manually but the graphical feedback here will be a great help to speed it up. I will download and try it out next time I get clear sky!

This is amazing! I had been hoping to see this in Voyager one day. Thanks, Leo!

Awesome addition Leo! :tada:

Thankyou so much Leo, I will try out the AO centering update tonight.
