18 Take an Image Automatically take any kind of image Automatically find a guide star - adjusting the guide exposure as necessary, Wait for the guide star to reach the specified error before starting the exposures. Automatically flip a GEM at the meridian, plate solve to match the pre-flip o any Plate Solve and Sync or Offset Focus Rotate an instrument rotator Dome control Intelligent Temperature Control Intelligently set the CCD cooler to the coldest temperature possible from a list of acceptable temperatures. Wait for any RA/Dec coordinate or TheSky defined Object to reach a minimum altitude. Wait for any specified time Park the Mount Automatic Flats Exposure time computed automatically to achieve the specified target ADU value. Dusk and dawn flats. "Screen" or "Dome" flats

33 Dean Salman My Web site is designed so that you can customize it on your computer for your location to get statistical information on the sun, moon, and planets. This includes lunar phases to 2035, rise and set times, magnitudes, phases, RA and DEC positions, distances, and much more. In addition, I update my database every month with current events happening in the sky and what the planets are doing for the current month. To set up your location, just enter your US or Canada city or zip code on the top of the page. If your city is not found or you do not have a U.S. or Canada zip code, use the City Locator. You can save your location for future visits so you do not have to enter your information each time you visit my site. Be sure to check out my mobile web site as well if you have access to the Web on your cell phone. (my mobile web site)
