I got this with the meade etx 90 ec. Does anyone else have the meade LPI. Im confused of how to use it, perhaps someone could help please?

I know how to set it up, im just a tiny bit confused of how to use it on the PC.

Thank you...

I use the DSI which is very similar from what I understand. Tell me exactly how far you have got with it, and I'll try to guide you from there.

There should be a button on the right hand side called "Start". If you click on that it should start taking exposures using the current settings.

There is a PDF manual on the software CD that contains all the important information you need to get started. It's worth reading it through a couple times, and have it to hand while you are at your scope too.

If it's a long exposure you will see the counter area (red) counting down. After an exposure is complete, depending on the settings, the image should apear in the main window.
