I have made this request before but I’m not sure it was a formal feature request.
This is pretty simple and should only involve a few lines of code - and it shouldn’t impact other features.
If MG is the guider, then turn off, then on guiding as usual. Currently dithering is supported and works well - by registering a remote message handler - then “posting” the message when you dither.
The same would work for guiding/unguiding - as described here:
For unguiding, you just post MG_RemoteUnLock, then post MG_RemoteUnGuide
For guiding, just post MG_RemoteLock, then post MG_RemoteGuide
Normally I start a sequence with guiding enabled and I would like to incorporate automated focusing and switching/centering of objects - but I can’t without being able to control guiding.
Note that this would also allow meridian flips and so forth - since MG has all the logic to do that by itself. It just needs to turn off, then on, guiding when going to the other side.
It’s nice that SGP supports dithering for MG and the overall combination works well as shown by my recent results. This additional functionality would make it much more powerful.
