Hi Jared. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Yes, as I mentioned in my initial post, I use the Framing and Mosaic Wizard almost every time I slew to a new object. However, what the F&M Wizard doesn’t allow me to do is see where the objects are located in the sky and if it is in a part of the sky I can image.
I use TSX to visually see if an object is located in the part of the sky I can image. I can then either have TSX slew to the object or go to SGP and setup a target for the same object and run SGP’s Slew and Centering routine. My point was this a lot of steps. Not an problem if you are only planning on imaging one target for the night, but if you want to slew around to different objects to see if they are good candidates based on their location and seeing conditions it quickly becomes a pain. I can, and often do, use TSX’s Closed Loop Slew to get an image centered on my 2000mm focal length scope. However, this requires disconnecting the camera from SGP, connecting it to TSX, perform the Closed Loop slew, disconnect the Camera from TSX, reconnect it back to SGP, add object to my imaging list, re-center the object in SGP, and then start imaging. All the while trying to avoid shocking the camera if cooling is already turned on.
I just thought it would be handy if SGP was able to communicate with TSX or any other planetarium software so that you can visually pick target and have SGP Slew and Center it automatically. However, it would appear from the responses that I am the only one who thinks it would be useful. I have to wonder why TSX and APT would bother implementing this type functionality if no one uses it. I will either learn to live with the multi-step process or move on to another solution.
