Hi,

 

I read that the "Hi Precision Slews" option is better for centering DSO objects, but do you know if the "sky model" is changed?

 

More precisely, my two questions are :

 

1- does the third star of "the Hi precision slews" process is considered as a third alignment star (in addition to the two initial stars alignment)? or does it replace one of the two stars?

 

2- Is the tracking of the DSO (near the third star) better?

 

 

thanks

Fran├žois

Hi Francois!

 

What I think is that the position adjustment is more of a straight up adjustment of the map in the scope, rather than a replacement of one of the two stars.  The intent of that adjustment is to make a necessary adjustment of position only based on a known major star and not any rotational correction.  Once that correction is made and the scope moves on to the object desired, I do not think any drift from that point will be any less than otherwise.

 

I will attempt to call in to Meade Customer Support and see if they have an answer any different than what I am thinking.

 

Best Regards,

Hi Francois,

 

I found out that Meade Customer Support is shut down due to the Corona Virus restrictions in California.  I will post here whenever I can find out anything further.

 

Best Regards,
