Target Data: What Do I Want to Shoot Tonight?

  • Alex McConahay
Part of the The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


Sequence Generator Pro lets the imager select a target and program an imaging run for that target. To select an appropriate target, the imager must know what targets are attractive, which are available, and how to find and designate them. This chapter will discuss some of the issues involved in target selection, and then describe how some of them are used in SGP. The next chapter, about the framing and mosaic wizard, is one of the most powerful tools to choose and configure targets. The last part of this book describes in detail how some of SGP’s “Friends” (AstroPlanner, Deeps Sky Planner, Deep Space Browser, and planetarium programs like Starry Night) work with SGP.
