This is a request to split the Target field in the Sequence Selection window into 2 fields. The Target would remain as the target.The second field would be the DIrectory where the images will be stored.
Currently these values are split in the esl file. The target becomes the directory name and the coordinates contain the image information, the actual target.
The current way I use this is to enter the target and the change the target name to reflect the directory where the images will be stored. This is 2 stpes and it is a corruption of the actual target identifier.
Upon testing this is essentially what happens. If the object lookup button is used then the name field and the RA/Dec fields are filled in. Alternativly if xxx is entered int the name and RA/Dec values are entered thsi sill also work. There is no tie from the name to the actual slew values / process. Essentially the the lookup is just a shortcut.
You have full control over how images are stored, and it is controlled by the sequence file.
See this screenshot of the capture tab
The directory field is the base directory.
The format field describes how filenames and directory names are configured below the base directory.
If you mouse over the word "Format" it explains what the various shortcuts mean (e.g. %t is replaces by the target name)
If you mouse over the format text box you get a sample of what the complete path will be.
When using the scheduler, it is best to leave the target blank and then the target will be taken from the "Target" name in the scheduler (which can be customized).
You save these settings as a part of your sequence file.
