Thanks for the comments and thanks for the ID Pete, appreciated.


Thanks Sheila, I’d love to add some more data, unfortunately my rig won’t allow me to go back to the same position with enough accuracy, so all my shots have to be single session.


I now have the 1300D controlled by APT, and have managed to get both near and far plate solving working, but my Vixen Mount is not computer (I.e Ascom) controlled, so I can’t ‘Goto’ that position.


My main aim for this year is to get an Ascom contriolled Mount.to allow me to do this.


I guess I could have a go with the Vixen and try and lock onto the co-ordinates reported by the plate solving if I can keep the camera position the same...
