This is an old one but I’d like to see its inclusion in v2.5. It is the last thing that keeps me using older software.
Basically, figure out when the sun is on the horizon, slew the scope directly ‘up’ or to a pre-defined position, turn off tracking, and then automatically figure out the flux per second to get the ADUs that are user-defined. Once it’s complete, it’d be nice if it just ran the night sequence. Also, if it could be set to do dawn flats… that’d be great too.
I think the applicability to ‘novices’ is great since it saves them quite a few bucks setting up a lightbox/flat panel. In addition, it automates flat collection; something new guys have trouble understanding too.
I know, not sexy :). But, I’d still love to see it included.
