I am confused about "Apparent Coordinates" and "J2000 Coordinates" being entered into Sequence .... can anybody help to clarify?
Very late last night I was attempting to carry out a series of imaging runs using Sequence in order to eventually make a mosaic of part of the sky.
Because of this I needed to enter the coordinates into the "Target Details" window in Sequence (see attached jpeg) for each separate run.
In preparation for doing this I took several quick images using MaximDL until I had the areas of sky where I needed in my cameras FOV.
I then took the RA & Dec information from the Autoslew screen and I entered these coordinates into the "Target Details " window in Sequence ready for a full set of Sequence runs.
At this point I realised that I was not 100% certain which box on the "Target Details" window in Sequence in order to enter the coordinates from Autoslew :-(
I am attaching two jpegs to show what I am talking about ... hopefully it will make sense!
I can't seem to spot anything to really help me in the various ASA manuals.
Rather than waste my time last night (the temp was falling below zero) so I decided to pack things up until I could find out what was the correct way to enter the coordinates.
Any guidance with this would be very much appreciated.
