Comet tracking?

Is there a way to track a comet in SGP? Or to do a comet do we have to figure out its position for the time we want to start and work with sidereal tracking?

I think PHD2 has a comet tracking mode

ok, so how would SGP incorporate that? you set up the sequence in the mean time instructing phd to comet track?

I have never tried it this way. I prefer to track the stars and process separately in PI.

Iā€™m assuming in this case that you would set PHD tracking manually, rather than have SGP instigate it. The relative brightness of comets is a plus - so initial alignment would be manual and the centering functions would be disabled.

One of the most memorable comet images was from CCDMan. You should ask him how he did it.
