TRACKING - Precision Correction: Celestron Nexstar SE
« on: April 18, 2017, 12:58:35 PM »
It is one thing to improve tracking near zenith.

My azimuthal mount is correct as follows: if the ISS in elevation, for example, is 80 , then it is trying to rotate almost 180 from the west direction to east direction. It would be simple if the telescope simply turned in the elevation "down the head". Of course, it is important to set the eyepiece ready for observation before and after elevation.

Did you try to set anything, for example, in Satellite Tracker? Or do you know if anything could be activated / set in ASCOM settings?

There is no ASCOM Interface with Satellite Tracker software.

Not all telescopes are capable of doing what you suggest, hence, why it does what it does, simply because of possible damage to the telescope if there would be interference in doing what you suggest.

For the time being, I don't think it would be a wise move to include an option one could select in Satellite Tracker to do what you suggest since this option could possibly be selected by accident and then would result in damage to the telescope should interference occur.
