Last night was my first experience using SGPro. For the sequence I set both a start and end time, calculating “about when” the image capture process would be through. I went to bed and set my alarm to the time I had calculated the process would end. When I returned to the scope, the process was a few images away from being finished, but almost to the end time that I had set. So, with a few images remaining, the system popped an ALERT (the kind that probably HAD to have my input before it would do anything else. It was telling me the end time had passed and asking if I would like to continue the imaging process or not. So, therein lies the problem - I THINK.
Would SGPro have safely PARKED the mount, or continue to track across the sky until I physically answered the prompt? I would have expected it to park the scope as soon as it hit the end time I had set. I do have the notifications setup, but in most cases I don’t want to come outside in the middle of the night to answer an alert.
So, I would propose a way to “check a box” that says - “Hey, if the human doesn’t answer my prompt in a reasonable amount of time (IE, approaching zenith, etc.) and I’ve just issued him an alert, I’m going to park this sucker, stop tracking and it’s his issue…”.
Is there currently a way for this type of action to occur?
