I was thinking about doing something similar but haven't had the time yet. I like the way SGP handles this.
It seems with the current functionality in ekos that it is somewhat hard to reuse sequences in the scheduler without the subs from different targets going into the same folder (unless I am missing something).
Great idea. TheSkyX uses a similar %x approach and I find it a godsend. In particular I’ve now developed an appreciation for having each night’s content in one sub directory into which I copy my flats and darks for that sensor and setup.
It also might help to have a unique incrementing file name counters vs. starting from zero for each sequence depending on your preferred fiolder structure top recent clobbering images over multiple runs.

When that MR is merged into master and released, will it include the ability to put captures into subfolders based on the object being observed? That would be super useful to reuse sequence templates for more than one object.
BTW, thanks for all the effort on this software to date; just stumbled onto it a few months ago and love what's been accomplished so far!
