I'm just starting to use your amazing software. There is so much functionality included in this package and it seems so easy to use. I especially like your software update/upgrade process... so easy, so automatic. I wish more software would work like yours. Thank you so much.

Is it possible to have an optional starting time for each target? That way, when the first target session finishes, the system could sit idle until a certain time specified in the target# tab (i.e., the new target rises above the horizon) and then starts the next sequence.

Anyway, outstanding job!

Ok i put a new button "Compute this Target",

you need click to "Start Session" and wait start time for the first target.

If you clic on "Start Now", the soft re-calculate all target time. So don't use this !!!

i put a credit&danote button


I update the 2.00.11 , To re download the same version you delete the file "update.txt" in the MaPilote directory

There is something unclear to me. Do I need to find a guide star/calibrate/guide or the tool does it for me?
Otherwise much of the unattended imaging would be compromised.

Yes,if you don't want use Maxim dl or CCDsoft for guiding, but you need calibrate manualy before start session because i can not ask calibrate to Phd (no IP order evable).

I can ask start guiding , stop and Dithering X pixels

Be carefoul again with a flip mount ! you need calibrate again PDH

Hey Laurent,

So, there isn't a command to the PHD server that allows you to tell it to 'force calibration'?

I bet if we talked to Stark about it he'd add a command for that. For some reason I can guide just fine with PHD with my finder-guider; in Maxim the guider goes crazy. I wish I could figure it out.

I did have an interesting bug the other day using MaxPilote: it was dithering despite having it set to not dither. I couldn't figure it out.

Chris

Hey Laurent,

Any idea on the dithering? I had it set to dither 0 pixels and it was still commanding a dither every picture. This is with PHD.

I bet if you talked to Stark, he wouldn't have any issues helping you out with commands . Nebulosity is more an camera control/processing program compared with your multi-target management program.

Thank you so much,
Chris

Thanks Laurent,
One more question. If I use PHD, and slew to targets on the same side of the meridian, will it automatically stop/start/select a guidestar in PHD? The issue with a pier flip is strictly due to not being able to command a calibration correct?

Thanks for fixing the dithering
