In the course of extensively evaluating data from SGP logfiles of different users with MiakelA’s SGP AF LogViewer I noticed that SGP doesn’t respect the regional settings of Windows in all cases.
My regional settings on the notebook for image capturing is German (Germany), see appended “regional_settings.JPG”. This implies that the date format “dd.mm.yyyy” is used and ‘,’ as the decimal separator. However, in my SGP logfiles, the date format is mm.dd.yy instead of “dd.mm.yy”, so day and month are interchanged, see “logfile_section.JPG” of 4th June 2019. When I import the filtered data into a spreadsheet, all date values are wrong. This has to be corrected manually which is a very annoying task when a large amount of data is processed.
I am aware that data evaluation is not the main reason for SGP to output a logfile. However, the data are available and we will continue trying to use them. You can judge the importance of doing so when you take a look at the best focus vs. temperature charts that helped us to prove that quadratic fit is superior to SGP’s current focus evaluation algorithm ( QUADRATIC best fit Focus routine TESTING - SEND LOGS , posts 62 and 63). Only by using the data in the SGP logfiles it was possible to obtain this information.
