How to use the Unistellar App


Here is a display of the home page with some indications of where each feature can be found (video below): app-v2-interface-en.gif

We will go through each feature in separate articles but for now, let's get you started with your first observation with the new App.

Your first observation

1 - First, start your eVscope and connect to its network

2 - Launch the Unistellar App 

3 - Press the telescope Icon in the bottom right corner of the screen


4 - Press the "move" button down at the bottom of your screen


5 - Hold and drag the joystick to move and control your eVscope
6 - Press on the "back" button


7 - With stars appearing on your screen you can press the "eVscope orientation" icon which is the new term used for "Automatic Field Detection (AFD)"


Then, if you need, press Edit to access the manual controls for gain and exposure.

8 - The Ra/Dec feature is accessible when you are already aligned. Note that you can now enter ''h'' for hour, ''m'' for minute, and ''s'' for second in Ra and ''d'' for degree in Dec instead of using symbols.


Here is a quick intro video to guide you through this new version of the App :
