syncronize

Asked by Gary Fritz on 2017-08-11

I when I use Stellarium to find an object it's way off. When I use the telescopes program (autostar) it's correct. How can I syncronize stellarium to autostar?

Define "way off". Stellarium sends "GOTO <coordinates>" to the telescope, nothing more. Telescopes differ in interpreting coordinates either as J2000 (standard epoch/equinox) or equinox of today. If "way off" amounts to the difference J2000 to today, use the respective other setting (data for today vs. data for J2000).

Can you help with this problem?
