Why is settling time not respected?

I have set a settling time under the telescope tab in control panel. SGP doesn’t seem to recognize this as it takes a shot immediately after the mount has stopped slewing feeding a sub with some star trails into the plate solve 2. It can be bad enough it does not solve. I have tried values from 3 to 10 seconds and it does not seem to do any difference. What am I missing? Thank you

Can you post your SGP log.


Here is a short log where I slew to the Cygnus wall and SGP took an image right away without waiting for the settling time to be done.


Your logs show that you slewed and settled 10 times (over the course of this set of logs). Each time, SGPro received a report that it was done slewing from your mount, waited 9 seconds and continued. Here is a single settling event… you can see SGPro does nothing, but wait until the settle time is complete.

[08/28/19 03:37:49.899][DEBUG] [Telescope Thread] Telescope: Slewing has completed
[08/28/19 03:37:49.899][DEBUG] [Telescope Thread] Telescope: Settling for 9 seconds

Thank you for this Ken. I am under the impression that the plate solve image arrives on my screen with a few seconds after the mount has finished slewing. I will have a close look at this next time I am imaging and I will also increase that waiting time. It is the initial plate solve image after the 1st major slew that is problematic.
