I’ve been imaging remotely for over a year now and tend to have multiple sequences going at once, for different images altogether. For example, I’m currently imaging the Needle Galaxy, which I stop at 03:45 and move on to Rho Ophiuchi until the end of the night. The trouble is that both these images are different sequence files. So far, I set an alarm to wake up at 03:40 or so, so I can login via TeamViewer, open the next sequence file and run that.
Needless to say, though this isn’t difficult, sometimes I just don’t wake up to the alarm to do it. I’m wondering if there’s a simple way to get SGP to switch sequences altogether? It would be great, for example, if there was an “End of Sequence” option to open another sequence and run it.
Currently, the only way I see this working is creating a custom sequence that has all the targets from both my images in it. I could then provide end times for individual targets so that it effectively switches image target, all within the same sequence file. The only hurdle is that I don’t know if it’s possible to “merge” two or more sequences’ targets. I thought the menu “File -> Import Targets” would allow me to select another SGP sequence file to import from, but that’s not the case.
Thanks for any pointers you can provide!
P.S. If there’s a way to make SGP change sequence files and run the next one using an API, please let me know!
