I am going to use APT with my Atik 428ex, when we next get a clear sky.
I will let you know how I get on.

I agree with Marks comments about SGP.

Cheers, if you don’t mind I would love to hear about that...

I did use APT with my Atik 428ex this eve. It worked a treat.
But sadly I lost my skies shortly after an exposure of Mirfak.

So it should work for you. It is cheaper than SGP. And frankly. It is easier to understand and use.

I wish the Cloud Gods would go on holiday.

Frustrating stuff indeed mate, I feel that pain!
Cheers for the reply though, much appreciated.
