Okay, I've been using MaxIM DL (5.24 now) for 7 years. When I slew to an object, I have the guide camera take a pic, then hit track, and off we go. When I guide to a new object, same thing. So, the other night I tried the mosaic function in Autosave, and lo-and-behold, when it slews to the next mosaic panel, it automatically has the guider take an image, then begins tracking. Is there a way to do that after a manual slew? I looked through the help/manual over and over and can't find anything. I'm sure it's something silly I missed, but it would be nice. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Oh, and before anyone says get some automating software, I have CCD Commander, I simply don't have time under the skies yet to set that up. I only get out, if I'm lucky, once a month. Anyway, thought if it could do it automatically when it takes mosaics, it might be able to be set after a manual slew.

Martin - yeah, I did. Waiting on all fronts. Not a big deal, and I think I'll just write a script (if I can remember how) to take care of it.
