SGPro doesn’t currently support this. Meaning… automation for scope covers is only ever in direct response to the need to use the camera and doesn’t currently consider physical obstructions as part of that automation. I’m not saying it shouldn’t consider those things, just that it doesn’t currently and that we can take a look at adding that.
I don’t disagree with this, but adding a new type of equipment is not a trivial task… lot’s of considerations, new automation logic, new error handling, etc.
Maybe. A lot of flatboxes use compatible instruction sets. What kind are you using? Maybe there is a different kind of flatbox in the list that thinks it doesn’t have a cover and just uses the flatbox parts.
Last, I should note that, because the flat box will only ever open automatically in an attempt to use the camera, do you know what startup event is causing it? Maybe plate solving for centering on the first target? Maybe there is an easier way to adjust that small point during startup.
