Start Capturing at: Last night I had the sequencing to start at 7:00pm to begin capturing IC410. When I returned to the Observatory I found the sequencing had not started at 7:00, but was “ready”. I pressed the Run Sequence button and then the process started (around 9:00pm).
Upon reflection, I suspect that after setting the “start capturing at” time (in this case 7:00pm), I then must push the Run Sequence button right away. Then the process will start when 7:00 rolls around.
Is this correct?
Guide Star Settle at: Soon after beginning to use SGPro, I increased the pixel settle at to 0.7. That helped the program keep going, but recently the failure to settle has become more chronic, resulting in aborts.
I have recently bumped that value to 0.8 and found that change to be of little help. As I watch the PHD graph I see the normal Dec and RA swings to generally be quite a bit greater than 0.8. So I’m wondering what is the down side of raising this value to a higher value, but one that still falls below the extremes of the guiding variation?
Included are screen shot of IC410 Target Settings, PHD2’s log file and SGPro’s log file.
Thanks for listening.
