Camera Settings Not Saved with Profile?


#1

Hi:

I am using an SBIG STT-8300 with the self-guide filter wheel and therefore the SGP guider API.

Tonite I made a new sequence to run before the image run while the moon was up to get some darks. To do that I made a sequence/profile that had no guider. Once done with that I closed that sequence and opened the previously prepared and used sequence for the object I am currently imaging - This object/sequence did have a guider (API), of course, and had been used successfully before.

When I went to PhD it (supposedly) connected using the API but gave me an error when tried to take a frame (“guider not connected”).

Only after a lot of cursing did I realize that what had happened is that the guide chip had remained on “none” in camera setup despite having loaded the older profile/sequence where it was set properly to “internal”.

Does this setting not save as part of a profile/sequence?

Unfortunately 2.4 reset all of the system settings (of which this is one). The guider selection for SBIG is not saved with the profile but rather with the system settings.

Thanks,
Jared
