Here’s a quick update on Beta 126.96.36.199.
For the first time since 188.8.131.52 the meridian flip finally worked, went off without a hitch. the sequence ran the entire night unattended, Imaged 3 hours on the Fireworks Galaxy and 5 hours on the Bubble Nebula. Scope parked and did all of the Calibration frames, Flats, Bias and Darks.
I only found two issues from last nights run.
- After the Flats were done the Flat panel did not turn off as expected.
- I still have issues with convergence during platesolve centering. mount always seems to gets stuck, and is very repeatable, between 75 and 85 pixels no matter how many attempts are tried. Because of this I set the centering to 80 pixels. I’m using a CGE-Pro mount.
I used the new “Sync” setting. I’m not sure I understand what the new Offset or non-sync settings do. Plus Ken said these have not been tested so I didn’t want to be the first without knowing what they are suppose to do.
I think that’s all for now If the weather holds again tonight, I’m planning on another run at the same targets. If I have any problems I’ll post the logs.
BTW - Great software!
