I tried to “white list” SGP in Bitdefender 2018 but for some reason that did not work. Turns out BD has an option called “Advanced Threat Defense” that can be turned off. Doing that allowed SGP v126.96.36.199 to be installed.
After starting SGP 188.8.131.52, I opened the Target Settings dialog box and then just clicked the " i " icon to open the graphic - got an exception. After trying a couple of things, I realized I had not entered an RA or DEC value for the target. Entering a value solved the problem.
Probably need to check for valid RA and DEC and put up an error box. Hmm, technically, 00:00:00 is valid for both RA and DEC but SGP threw an exception with those values.
Right clicking graphic does not record end time if you click more than 3.5 hours past midnight.
Some thoughts about extending the Planning Assistant concept – now that FMW is bundled, I would like to see the Target Settings dialog box support a Simbad database lookup on a target name just like FMW does. For new imagers, in particular, they often just want to take a picture of M51, for example. So being able to just enter M51 and click a lookup button to get its coordinates would be hugely helpful. If you actually want to do mosaics or to set your rotator angle or custom position your subs, etc. you would still use FMW.
