I still don't get it. Oh well, guess it must be my fault.

Between a wet sky, then a Full Moon, last night was a bust.

Having issues is often frustrating, but a good chance to explore partts of the program and what it CAN do is never a waste of time. One thing I was always corncerned with was if I am in attendance on a imaging session, and the guiding stops, there was no audio output to alert me if I was on another screen..... I found a thread explaining where to turn the sound on. Cool, but no matter what I did nada, no sound..... not the end of the world but keeping up this forum on what works and if it didn't is critical to the next person with the issue. Follow up please.

Jaseem. I put another video together with audio this time, to explain what my issues are. I don't think I am alone. IF others here wish to view it (possibly proving how incompitent I am) PM me and I will provide the link!

Much better but there are still issues. I sent you a silent video on how I perform the task of capture/control and file transfer.

By "back-ported" I assume you mean that V1.7.1 now has 3.6.0 Beta in it. If so I will do as you suggest and try again.

Sorry if I sounded short in my last post. I started with computers way back when you had to type at "C:" for half a day to make a dot move around the screen. But my life was funded by physically working. To survive at farming it was essential to dip into the field of electronics management to have new equipment run in a fashion the engineers intended. In the end, the ultimate gaol is a product that works.

I take pride in being able to make things work. But that has limits.

No. I formated the SD card and rewrote the v1.7.1 on it. I tried again last night, no joy. Just frustration, thought it was me, NOPE the program doesn't work. Do any of you computer types fiddling with writing code actually go out and use the thing to capture night sky data?

BTW How do I edit files (delete) from the directort tree?

Had the second opportunity to attempt using the Scheduler last night. Starting to get used to the new version. The new directory is interesting! The Sequences seem problematic in where my images are stored. I did finally manage to figure out how to get them to where I could access them from my remote computer. However I either don't understand, or neglected to change something in regards to where each image would plate solve to.

I have my "Align" Accuracy set to 15 arcseconds. My griad overlap was set to 15%. All else went well, even when a cloud messed with my guiding, pausing the sequence for a bit. When I got the images transfered to my processing computer I discovered that what the sequence grid looked like in Kstars isn't what I got stitching the images together (Astro Pixel Processor). Here is what I got with the data I aquired.(Note lower right was Plate 1....Upper left (guiding issues here) is Plate 4 of a 20 plate image.
