Sequence Generator Pro (RC2) is Released for Testing

Sequence Generator Pro (RC2) is released for testing.

SGPro 2.4 (Beta 10 or higher) will require PHD2 2.4.1e or better to function properly: You can download it here:

Release Candidate 2 Changes:

  • Fixed a bug that would prompt a sequence to start guiding even if no active light frames were detected
  • Fixed an issue where, if the user did not disable the “Auto-Off” feature for Canon cameras (via the camera), SGPro would let it turn off.
  • Added a new recovery type to detect and fix failure to flip calibration data (prevents recalibration of auto guider after meridian flip failure)
  • Possible fix to wait for flatbox to open/close prior to imaging.

Release Candidate 1 Changes:

  • Serious Issue: Fixed an error where opening an image in SGPro might cause the image to become corrupted permanently (due to duplicate header entries)
  • Fixed a bug where closing child windows might displace the main SGPro window
  • Fixed a bug where sequence end times might be in the past (despite the fact that they should be in the future)
  • Added an option where auto focus dark frames only need to be with +/- 2sec of the exposure length to be applied
  • Added ability to apply CR2/CRW/NEF darks to auto focus frames (same rules apply to naming these images)
  • Removed duplicate XPIXSZ and YPIXSZ FITS header entries
  • Disabling image history navigation during image download
  • Fixed a bug that could alter the behavior of “Focus on sequence start” in an unpleasant manner
  • The auto guider will now always attempt to “settle” prior to taking a light frame (even if the dithering option is not selected).
  • The manual rotator direction can now be reversed if your profile has a gear combination that causes the image to be “flipped”

Beta 15 Changes:

  • Fixed an issue where the Image History module could sometimes crash SGPro (if your image history had bad data)
  • Fixed a bug where aborting a sequence during the guide and settle process would present an error dialog indicating sequence failure
  • Fixed a bug where resuming a sequence could sometimes trigger auto focus when you do not have that trigger selected
  • Fixed a bug where canceling AF during initialization could result in infinite inward movement of the focuser
  • Updated Canon SDK to the most recent version
  • Fixed a bug where older sequences could crash when opening dome slaving options

Beta 14 Changes:

  • Added support for additional Pinpoint catalogs (USNO and UCAC4)
  • Added new GNS option to sound alarm when warning messages are sent
  • Fixed an issue where SGPro would crash upon clicking the open sequence menu icon
  • Added notification for AF failure due to HFR = 0
  • Replaced “Marked as Bad” text with “X” image
  • Guiding and settle timeout now set at 15 minutes (from 5). Need some timeout to know to invoke recovery
  • Changed “Scope has central obstruction” option to “Disable smart focus”
  • Made PHD2 status fetching more robust
  • Possible fix for black status bar
