Best practice for frames with slightly different spike positions

Hello,

As the subject says: are there recommended settings in the integration tab, when you have frames with slightly diffrent spike positions (resulting from different sessions - and let's say these frames are about equal in number)?

Kind regards, Stephan

Good question, but I'm not aware of a specific workflow for that. APP registers star positions and usually spikes don't move between sessions, did your setup change a bit in between?

Well, this happens, when you have to take away your cam from the scope or switch from landscape to portrait orientation. When bringing back the cam the positioning can differ slightly, only 1 or 2 degrees, thats the accuracy you ususally achieve, but unfortunatly it's visible in the spikes...

They can differ in that sense yes, but alignment should take care of getting the exact same orientation again right? I must say I never take photo's in portrait and then landscape, I tend to try and use a similar orientation always for a target. I never saw an issue with my spikes if I did that. But I do think that if you do, it's something that needs to be solved on the hardware side.
