I really hate automation sometimes. I set up a long run last night to get M84 and company and programmed Voyager to shoot 120 x 3 minute RGB frames. The night was cloud free and the moon was not making any impact. I start the imaging run and watch it shoot the first 15 frames without issue. I go to bed and wake up today with the exectation that i will be greeted with a drive full of files and my scope parked. I look out to my observatory and my scope is not parked. I go to my office computer and there are only 19 files in the drive!
Voyager is a very stable program but last night, as soon as I got into bed, it decided to stop working. So my scope and mount were left without any control. I only got 19 of the 120 images I was hoping for and the mount, without any control spent the next 7 hours trying to push my camera into my pier! I think I will have to move my bed into my observatory to baby sit everything. Of course we expect clouds for the next several days in time for the moon to get big and bright.
This is just a rant.
