Framing and Mosaic Wizard - ability to cancel Fetch

This has bitten me a few times. Sometimes I make a mistake entering the FoV value, like entering 25 when I meant to enter 2.5. This causes SGP to go off and start downloading a 25 degree tile! AFAICT the only way to stop it is to exit SGP. It would be great if the F&M Wiz gave me the opportunity to cancel the download without having to exit SGP to do so.

Thanks,
Andy

We believe in being responsible for your mistakes… if you enter 28 degrees, you will wait and you will suffer!!

Hmm, maybe that’s a little too hard line, maybe just changing fetch to an abort button? Fine, whatever… seems reasonable.

Well, I actually need larger tiles, like 44 degrees or more but no matter how long I wait, it never gets downloaded. I have a widefield setup and would love to see 50-60 degree tiles to improve my framing.

Here are some recent shots I’ve done with this setup

I’ve never been able to download a tile larger than12-16 degrees.

OK. We can take a look at improving it or worst case, at least documenting limitations.
