Hi,
At the moment Capture is working with markers to re-position the scope to a position used before for a given image. State-of-the-art would be platesolving. Just have the exact center (and rotation!) of an existing image determined by platesolving. Then take a new image and display the required movements and rotation. A good implementation would do this in (almost) real-time while the camera would take images in a loop... Ultimately, as an alternative, Capture could connect to the scope and directly do the slewing and syncing based on the difference between original and current image. I'm writing some software of this kind right now to do this for my particular equipment. I failed however to establish the communication with my 383L+. Just cannot get it to connect to ASCOM...
Thanks and best regards,
Antares
