The sequence (and equipment profile) has an option to re-calibrate the autoguider (e.g. PHD2) when the target changes. This is great but a re-calibration of PHD2 takes some time and may not be necessary if for example the set of targets listed are part of a mosaic (all areas of night sky are close to each other).
However, a contrasting situation is when say, you have 5 targets listed. Target 1 causes a calibration of PHD2 and the imaging progresses. Then SGP switches to target 2 and since it is 70° away from target 1, it re-calibrates PHD2 and the imaging progresses. So far so good. However, targets 2 to 5 are mosaic segments so now when SGP switches to target 3, it will re-calibrate PHD2 once again when it didn’t really need to.
The solution would be to have a global option for re-calibration per target change (as it is now), but also provide a local option within each target (in the “Target Settings” window). The user could then say that when switching from target 1 to target 2, PHD2 should re-calibrate, but when switching to targets 3, 4 and 5, it should not bother.
Thank you for taking the time to read this request!
