I use Maxim DL to check the last frame for FWHM while I'm waiting for the next frame.
I can then find out if the seeing & or focus is getting better or worse.
My limitation is the atrocious Melbourne weather -
it's been nearly 6 months without setting up my system.
I can't be bothered with even occasional clouds -
I want an all clear night forecast before setting up.


Still - this topic of RC telescopes being outdone by other designs is interesting.
Is it business puffery or not?
