Plate solve for NiteCrawler rotation angle before Start


#1

I have a NiteCrawler focuser/rotator. When I hit the Start button for the evening, the scope slews and the camera starts rotating to what it thinks is the correct angle. Problem is the initial camera angle is assumed to be zero so it rotates to the objects angle relative to that assumed zero degree location and is incorrect.

To get around this, I have to manually plate solve so the camera angle is known, THEN hit the start button.

Is there an option somewhere to have an initial plate solve at sequence start so SGP knows for sure where the camera angle is?

Thank you,
Dan

You might want to give the Beta a shot. It has multiple fixes around this as well as persisting the rotator offset between launches which should eliminate this problem.

Thanks,
