The Soapbox MountPusher Guider

the interface on top of an image acquired with the guiding solution

I have the following problem at home: the balcony is small, the tube is big and I am lazy. This sums up to a constant problem of drifting, the planet or lunar surface being imaged slowly walks away. Though there are methods to polar align a mount even when there is no way to see the north pole, the small balcony part means frequent small bumps into the whole thing. The oversized scope is also prone to accidents. I also tried the feature tracker in Sharpcap, failed, and the autoguiding of PHD2, failed. So I came up with the soapbox ensembleI call it noszogtató in Hungarian, for it means something like nagger-pusher-convincer. It got itself a soapbox, literally.

UPDATE 2019-09-30: I extended the hardware and the software.

Jupiter, Saturn, 2019-06-08

The setup is the usual, ASI 224MC, TSO ADC, N250/1200, HEQ5 with the home made motorized focuser and the home made arduino noszogtató mount guider. I would like to call this the soapbox project — it is mounted inside a soap box, though in Hungarian and Romanian we use soapbox to denote compact and dumb cameras too.

Jól kalibrált monitoron mindegyik számnál elkülönülő árnyalat látszik. Ha mégsem látszanak, akkor a megjelenített képek színhiányosan rajzolódnak ki. A monitort valószínűleg kalibrálni kell.

You should see distinct shades for each number. If those shades are not clearly visible, the displayed pictures will lack accuracy. Your display most likely needs to be calibrated (brightness, gamma, contrast etc.).
