Hi folks .... maybe somebody can give me some pointers about "Plate Solving".
Now that I am confident in using Autoslew and CdC for visual and imaging on my DDM60Pro I need to try to understand the mysteries of plate solving.
Thus far, for imaging, I have been taking things step-by-step using Astro Photography Tool (APT) and BackyardEOS (BYE) for imaging using my Canon DSLR. I really ought to start using my Moravian CCD camera now that the nights are starting to draw in.
I already have MaximDL, PinPoint and Sequence installed on my laptop but I have been hesitant to get to grips with these as the various manuals that came with these seem pretty complex for a total novice like me :-(
Can anybody suggest where I might find useful videos or PDF guides which will get me started with these bits of s/w ... and in particular plate solving ???
I have had a good look on the internet and YouTube etc. without a great deal of success so far.
