I am having a slight problem when plate solving with SGP. Using EQMOD when the scope slews to target SGP starts taking the pate solving image as soon as the scope arrives to destination and the image is typically "moved" since the scope is not yet settled when SGP starts to take the exposure; Same happens with the subsequent  centering attempts (I have set SGP to attempt to centre 3 times in order to fine tune framing). The plate solving images are always "streaked" since SGP doesn't wait for the scope to settle. 

 

Is there any way in which I can introduce a delay between slew and image capture?

 

Thanks!
