debugging logs in the code.

Hi and thanks for taking a look.
I'll also have a go. Your grep narrows it down well and will help now I know what to look for. However, don't expect much. My last go at debugging was working through K&R;)
TIA

I'll have a look at the log

Hi
No problem. I posted mainly for @hy who had put in some extra debugging.
Now we know it times out and recovers, NP.
Cheers

If you 'git pull' you would get the software with the extra logging. So, please do that, and then, should this ever happen again, please add the new log to this thread.


Hi
Not after meridian flip but fails to download. Maybe the flip was misleading. Capture counts down, reached 0.1s and waits until timed out.

No. It doesn't happen after each frame.
Maybe one every 10 sessions for me. I thought it would be ok to report though.

Hi.
My suggestion is for an option. A toggle.

Hi everyone
In between captures and after the dither if a delay is set, the next capture does not start. This only happened once in this session but manual intervention was required to restart the sequence.

Sorry, can't nail it further than that but it was on the first job, m67. I removed the delay and the job then ran to completion.

steve created a new topic ' scheduler: guiding aborted but capture continues' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi everyone
Again I'm afraid. This time somewhere between 01:00 and 02:00 guiding stopped but capture continued: elongated stars:(
(The job was M_96 around capture 30)

I manually aborted and restarted the scheduler to resume around 02:30.

Can anyone help?
Cheers and clear skies,
Steve

Hi everyone
e.g. 2 jobs. When the second job starts, the first job remains displayed, although the second job is executed correctly.
Screenshot attached. This could be misleading.

Proposal: update the target J2000 Sequence FITS File etc with the current job.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi
My idea was simple: if guiding fails, realign. End of story.
It would be a toggle in the scheduler options for those who want the current behavior.
Cheers,

Capture will abort exposure by itself when the post-flip exposure doesn't finish 180 seconds after its expected duration.


Ah, OK. I didn't know, although I feel sure I waited for more than 3 minutes... Did I?! I had to abort the capture manually so that it would recover and continue.

Hi
We already recover after guiding failure; that works great.- the problem being that the new guide star may take the intended target away from, say, centre field. The issue then is that the edges of the frame are lost.
If you need anything tested along these lines, here I am:)
