I’m running sequences now on my trial SGP but I have some questions about what I am doing. So far, I start a sequence with an equipment profile already set. I have been slewing to my target area manually, then using the frame and focus feature in SGP to get my target where I want it. I also focus manually at this point. Then, I go into the Control Panel and go to the Plate Solve tab and plate solve from where my scope is pointing since that is the shot I want to use to keep my scope aligned on and for future imaging of that target. The Plate Solve works but, I don’t know how to save that particular image and solve for future use. Then, I go to the target in the sequencer and give the image a name. I do see the coordinates of the plate solved image on the left side of the Target box but, when I try use the “export” option on the right side of the window, I get a message that I don’t have a valid plate solve!. So, now I get PHD up and running, set up my sequence and start imaging which initiates my auto-focus routine. All seems to work as advertised except I don’t know if I will be able to make SGP slew my scope to the exact same spot on another night. Olease advise on that.
I also need to know what to do to get the scope back on the image after a meridian flip if I can not save the current plate solve?
Thanks for any help.
