SV aligner quick guides are already available in four languages.
In addition to the original Spanish quick guide version, we have just published versions in English, French and Catalan.
The guides consist of 8 pages with lots of pictures plus 7 annexes regarding technical specifications, suggestions and advanced options.
Writing these guides has been a hard work not only for us but also for many people who helped us with translations and corrections.
To all of them, thank you very much for their help.
Q 1: Who is the target audience for this method?
A 1: Anyone who requires a good polar alignment in no more than 15 – 30 minutes.
By “good polar alignment” we mean one with a true NCP offset error of only a few pixels.
If you take long exposure captures, regardless of whether you work from a fixed or portable setup, a good polar alignment is critical to avoid field rotation problems.
In astrophotography, any good picture starts with a good polar alignment. Accurately aligning the equatorial mount right ascension axis so that it is in parallel to the earth’s axis is not an easy feat. Available methods, whether manual or software assisted, are time-consuming procedures that in many cases reach only limited accuracy.
This is a blog where to share our astrophotography activity.
We’ll soon share some of the content in English.
Thank you for being patient
