The 2+ hour session last night was designed to just capture two targets and solve/correct normally. The early part of the log shows other activities (PHD2 polar alignment check) so can be ignored. On the first target acquisition the plate solve apparently worked although I could not see the results at that time.
On the second target (NGC7331) it simply did not proceed during stage 2 but did not crash. I can’t interpret the log (attached). I waited for a few mins before pausing sequence.
I reverted to manual checks and pointed the scope myself via ‘solve’ etc.
I reset the schedule after unclicking target 1 (which was complete). I restarted (see log file). Again the plate solve 2 failed on stage 2 reporting ‘image preview opened’.
The other most surprising event was that I found the setting ‘flip guide calibrations’ and believed that that setting would take effect after any mount flipping. To my astonishment it took immediate effect and completely corrupted the guiding instantly. I was able to correct this effect by re-flipping the control. It is therefore not clear to me why the control works in only real-time because I might not have been there.
Any advice/comments would again be most welcome.
