Goto xx.x angle is not calculated correctly - solution

Postby tamuin » Wed Jan 27, 2010 9:27 pm

DVB Dream calculates the goto xx.x angle incorrectly, it appears to be using the azimuth for the goto xx.x angle. The goto xx.x angle should be the hour angle.

The goto xx.x angle can be calculated from the azimuth (you also need the elevation and observer latitude).

The correct equations can be found at the end of this thread:
