#1

Sequence Generator Pro 2.4.0.2761 (RC2) is released for testing.

SGPro 2.4 (Beta 10 or higher) will require PHD2 2.4.1e or better to function properly: You can download it here: http://openphdguiding.org/snapshots.html

Release Candidate 2 Changes:

  • Fixed a bug that would prompt a sequence to start guiding even if no active light frames were detected
  • Fixed an issue where, if the user did not disable the “Auto-Off” feature for Canon cameras (via the camera), SGPro would let it turn off.
  • Added a new recovery type to detect and fix failure to flip calibration data (prevents recalibration of auto guider after meridian flip failure)
  • Possible fix to wait for flatbox to open/close prior to imaging.

Release Candidate 1 Changes:

  • Serious Issue: Fixed an error where opening an image in SGPro might cause the image to become corrupted permanently (due to duplicate header entries)
  • Fixed a bug where closing child windows might displace the main SGPro window
  • Fixed a bug where sequence end times might be in the past (despite the fact that they should be in the future)
  • Added an option where auto focus dark frames only need to be with +/- 2sec of the exposure length to be applied
  • Added ability to apply CR2/CRW/NEF darks to auto focus frames (same rules apply to naming these images)
  • Removed duplicate XPIXSZ and YPIXSZ FITS header entries
  • Disabling image history navigation during image download
  • Fixed a bug that could alter the behavior of “Focus on sequence start” in an unpleasant manner
  • The auto guider will now always attempt to “settle” prior to taking a light frame (even if the dithering option is not selected).
  • The manual rotator direction can now be reversed if your profile has a gear combination that causes the image to be “flipped”

Beta 15 Changes:

  • Fixed an issue where the Image History module could sometimes crash SGPro (if your image history had bad data)
  • Fixed a bug where aborting a sequence during the guide and settle process would present an error dialog indicating sequence failure
  • Fixed a bug where resuming a sequence could sometimes trigger auto focus when you do not have that trigger selected
  • Fixed a bug where canceling AF during initialization could result in infinite inward movement of the focuser
  • Updated Canon SDK to the most recent version
  • Fixed a bug where older sequences could crash when opening dome slaving options

Beta 14 Changes:

  • Added support for additional Pinpoint catalogs (USNO and UCAC4)
  • Added new GNS option to sound alarm when warning messages are sent
  • Fixed an issue where SGPro would crash upon clicking the open sequence menu icon
  • Added notification for AF failure due to HFR = 0
  • Replaced “Marked as Bad” text with “X” image
  • Guiding and settle timeout now set at 15 minutes (from 5). Need some timeout to know to invoke recovery
  • Changed “Scope has central obstruction” option to “Disable smart focus”
  • Made PHD2 status fetching more robust
  • Possible fix for black status bar
