This post might seem a little abrupt, and I assure you it’s not meant that way. I’m running into issues getting answers about software - SGP Pro is one of three products I’m looking at.
First, I am a potential new user of SGP Pro. I looked through the main page, the intro, and many forum subjects before posting here.
We are building a completely robotic observatory. No hands on, period, once home, park, and polar alignment are complete. We will see the observatory about once every 30 days.
I am looking for an application that I can first input a list of targets, and:
a) the software will consider RA/DEC position of the target, AND
b) visibility of the target above horizon constraints that I can teach the system (rooftops, trees, etc) AND
c) take advantage of clear weather based on the inputs from a wx sensor, AND
d) only after previous items are considered, image available targets based on the aforementioned criteria, AND
e) perform focusing, meridian flip, and plate solving to acquire a centered image every time, that the target is available, AND
f) continue operations until the required images that are preset are captured, including positioning of the dome rotation and auto opening/closing of the dome shutter, AND THEN
g) move to the next target automatically
“Read the manual” is not an answer I’m seeking. Can SGP perform operations in this manner?
Thanks for your reading this and your responses in advance.
