My target is NGC7023, in the general neighborhood of the star Deneb.
I’ve been running this same setup, target and Sequence for a few nights. Last night was the first time SGPro did this.
I had opened the OBS around 4:30pm. I opened SGPro and connected camera, scope and dome. Then used the hand controller on the scope (Meade 12"LX200 Classic) to slew to Deneb. Everything was left on and running.
A few minutes before 6:00pm I manually centered Deneb, sync’d, and manually focused with a B-mask. Nothing new about this approach.
I started the Sequence at 6:00:08.
Scope reported at 6:00:14 that it was slewing to the target. However, nothing moved, scope remained on Deneb.
Plate Solve2 began and reported at 6:01:05 that the scope was pointed at Deneb’s RA and Dec.
Scope and Dome began slewing to NGC7023’s RA and Dec at 6:01:15.
Everything aligned and all worked well from thereon.
I’ll be doing the same target again tonight and will report on whether it fails to initially Center and Slew.
