Hello,
Is-it possible to track a comet with Stellarmate ?
For example, I've captured 67/P but of course, I was limited by the speed of this comet for the exposure. 
And during the session,Stellarmate keep the first position of the comet for each capture.
Is-it possible to indicate at Stellarmate to follow the position of the comet for each capture ?
Thank you,
Frank

Ekos itself doesn't have comet tracking, but I have used PHD2 comet tracking mode for this, Cartes du Ciel can initialize the tracking parameters directly in PHD2 so it's not very straight forward, but quite convenient and easy once you know how.

Hmmm, ok, thank you for your message.
I didn't know this function. Interesting. Is-it difficult to install CDC ?
I will keep on eye on this asap.
Thanks !

I'm not sure if Stellarmate has it already installed (binary is called skychart if you try), but there are .deb packages for armhf available from the home page.

For CdC, be sure to follow the link to download the beta version 4.3, the version 4.2.1 comet displacement information is not compatible with the recent version of phd2.
