I tried my second attempt at doing a mosaic on the Heart & Soul Nebula last night. I got all my frames
but here’s what happens:
On the first frame, SGP slews to the target and performs a succesfull plate solve. Then it will stop because PHD never selected another guide star. And before it aborts, I cancel the “Dismiss” and that pauses the sequence. I then go in to PHD2 (Dev Build 11) and re-select the guide star. Imaging commences for that frame.
The same thing happens on all suseqent mosaic frames. After a succesful Plate Solve, the guider won’t resume as the guide star from the previously manually selected guide star has moved. I then select another and the imaging continues. I took 6 X 2 Mosaic Panels this way.
Is there any way that when SGP’s Plates Solves are successfuly completed on each panel, that the next guide star is selected automatically? In PHD I used the hot key combination Alt/S (for PHD2 to auto select a guide star), but nothing happens. Otherwise it looks as if I have to pause the sequence after the Plate Solve routine, manually re-select a guide star, then carry on with the sequence again.
It appears that I’m almost there, I got all my panels but had to manually re-select a guide star before starting to image each of the next panels.
Thanks for any help…Clear Skies!
