I am interested in purchasing the software, lots of features at a very attractive price. I have been learning it over the past few days by looking at the documentation. Last night I gave it a go under the stars. I encountered a problem. Here is my setup.
APCC running the mount
Borg 77ed doing mainly guiding work at 500mm
RC10 main imaging scope at 1700mm
Full version of Pinpoint 6. something…
I was able to create a profile for the equipment and the user. I was able to apply the parameters to the sequence. I built a LRGB sequence with a designated target coordinate, pinpoint solve, repositioning to get it spot on, followed by taking the images. All the steps were active.
The scope slews beautifully to the target.
It takes and image successfully
Pinpoint solves successfully
I already have the guider on and working
Then, nothing happens. The sequence does not run thereafter.
It just stops.
I tried to set one of the tasks as current and bypass the targeting and pinpoint solutions since they were repeaditly successful and I tried to use the practice guider so I could isolate just taking the images and it runs and says the sequence is done but no images are taken.
I spent hours on this last night. Anyone have some suggestions? Also note that yes, I did have the checkboxes toggled in the imaging tasks so they should have worked. I had some issues with the camera but I think it was user error. I was able to take images utilizing the frame and center separately as well as pinpoint solve. Don’t know why it does not go through the imaging part of the equation.
SGP talks to the scope via APCC and the ASCOM Driver
SGP talks to the cameras via standard SBIG drivers.
Other software seems to work okay. Just does not execute the image part of the equation.
