played with TheSky 6

Some bad weather was coming through. A good time for some learnin'.

1:10 PM. I made a Field Of View shape in TheSky 6 for the Canon 40D. Checked against SkyTools. OK.

1:46. Just figured out how to rotate the camera chip in TS6. Not as fast as SkyTools. I edited the FOV and applied a Position Angle value.

1:48. Changed the time. Ha ha. Saw the comet. Good.

2:00. TS6 has an interesting advantage in the FOV feature: you can show one or more shapes, eyepieces or cameras, at the same time. That's helpful if you want to know which eyepiece is similar to a camera view...
