I just installed the latest version of SG and wanted to do a mock run. I entered the data for the camera and filter wheel (QSI583wsg), mount and guider. I click on the Sequence with profile and it loads the camera information. HOWEVER, if I click on the camera icon, it shows that it’s not connected. I populate all the information for a sequence and still no camera connected.
But, and I don’t know what I did, suddenly the camera is connected and the cooler is working. I have no idea what I did to start it, however. I’ve tried having the camera connected before I start SG and connected it after I start SG.
So now that it’s running, I attempt to run a sequence and it stops it and tells me that the guider failed to settle. So…I went back into the tools and removed the guider. Ran the sequence again and still get the same message about the guider. Is a guider required to be calibrated and running to do a sequence?
Also, what do you guys do to get the frame and focus? That was a nice deal with Nebulosity…but that was with a OSC camera. I’m sure I’ll have more questions, but I can’t get off the ground.
FYI, I have an f4 imaging Newt on an MI250 in an observatory, so it’s permanently mounted.
Thanks in advance!
