Hi Jared and ken and all experts I urgently need your help again. I thought all was good tonight, set up a sequence to take LRGB images of M13 set the sequence going and it plate solved fine, auto focus all fine. PHD running fine an away it all went to initially take 20 Red frames of 60 seconds each. It got to Event1 Frame 6 all fine and I was thinking that I had cracked it. Little did I know.
It downloaded Frame 6 then nothing else happened, at 22.18pm I paused the sequence as it was doing nothing. stooped at Event1 Frame6 now 22.22pm
The Sequence said “Pausing”
22.23pm Frame 7 starts, SEquence still says “Pausing”, then said “Paused” after finishing Frame 7
22.25pm now says at the bottom of the screen “running sequence” but nothing can be seen to be happening! PHD running fine through all of this.
22.27 then out of the blue it says running dither and starts Frame8
22.28pm downloads Frame8 and says Image complete Event1 Frame8. Then seems to stop again with nothing indicated at the bottom of the screen. What is going on???
22.31pm still nothing going on. PHD still running fine.
22.34 Still the same screen says Image complete Event1 Frame8
22.35 I click Pause Sequence and it says "pausing"
22.36 Frame9 starts Hurrah,but still says Pausing at the bottom of the sequence window.
22.39 In frustration I click "Abort the current sequence"
Abort is greyed out but the bottom of the screen says “Running sequence” but nothing visibly is happening. PHD still running happily
22.42 Still the same, why doesn’t abort actuall abort?? So far I have obtained 9 X 60s images in nealy an hour???
22.45pm I stop PHD makes no difference. Restarted PHD made no difference.
22.49 Gave up in frustration and started to turn the equipment off
Please, please have a look at the log and tell me what I am doing wrong or what is going wrong. I have 21 days left of the free period and so far it has been very very stressful. Another night of stars lost.
Grateful if you could get back to me as soon as.
Log to follow - hopefully
