- Plate solving:
Most of the time the image taken for plate solving is noise but, if I restart my pc and boot SGP really fast, hit the mosaic tab and build my sequence… I might be able to get SGP to take an exposure that is legible for plate solving. It has happened once in 7 days of 8 hour nights, sitting in the back yard like a crazy ass hole staring an my laptop while my family looks at me through the window afraid to talk to me because the might git a telescope shoved up their ass. I have read the Manuel forwards and backwards. I have followed the tutorial provided under the support tab on the MainSequence web site and Printed it out and highlighted the important information. I spoke to Kevin at skywatcher, Steven at Staizona, and Tegan at Highpoint Scientifc. Followed all their advise and of course studied everything I could find on YouTube about SGP. So far I have been able to take 1 60s exposure of m101. CRASH! FATAL ERROR! It was good while it lasted though.
Can’t guide because SGP won’t keep communication with PHD2. For that matter PHD2 won’t keep communication with my guide camera. However, when the stars do line up and the programs do work together, the object I’m trying to track out runs the little green box and oops no mo data!
- Restarting a sequence after a fatal error. I don’t think it’s possible.
