I am a first time user getting the SGP environment set up. I have a few (probably very simple) questions that I cant find answers to in the helps at this point:
In a few places in the help files I have noticed that other packages are mentioned as ‘most commonly used with SGP’. Is there a list of a recommended (or most commonly used) full set up? What other set of applications are ideal to bolt up with SGP?
I am assuming that if I want to send myself an email or SMS alert when some part of the sequence completes (or fails) I can do that by writing a script, then hooking it to the appropriate event in the sequence a via pre- or post- event script. Is this correct?
It looks like the Delay setting on the Sequence Management screen is between all of the events in the script. Can I have a delay between just two events that I select (maybe via script?)
I see how to connect to an environmental monitor but not how to use the inputs from it in the sequences. If clouds come over , for example, how would I stop the sequence, send me an alert, etc?
Do I own and align the telescope first, from some other pgm (like TheSky or the mount hand controller) then start up SGP? How does SGP figure out the initial position of the telescope post alignment?
Thanks for the help.
