I'm using a Ximea CMOSIS camera (at the moment, and won't be using anything else for a month or so). This is a link to a user's manual: www.ximea.com/downloads/usb3/manuals/xiq_technical_manual.pdf. I wish I knew more about drivers in general, and the one's needed for this camera in particular. Let me know how I can help you help me.
Thanks for your response, I really appreciate it. I'll put the observation planner aside now and focus on the features in the Ekos Scheduler. I am slewing using NSEW motion, but it is easy to adjust what I would like to do while performing a GOTO (as long as I can somewhat control the GOTO's slew rate).
When I create a profile of my equipment (mount + CCD), my camera isn't recognized and prevents the connection that would be made if I was just using a simulator camera with the mount. Despite the ~15 manufacturers and numerous models within each, I do not think that my CMOS camera is listed within them. Should I use the INDI Webcam, or RPI camera in the Other panel? Or will this cause problems in connection like the one's I'm currently experiencing? (This is probably unnecessary, but I tested the camera on a windows computer and with a python script on this Linux machine, it has been working just fine there recently)
Is there an easier way to change the status of a job in the Scheduler (namely from completed to scheduled so I can redo my last test) than deleting all of the jobs and then recreating them? Deleting the batch one-by-one and then reopening the Ekos scheduler list file doesn't even revert them back to "scheduled."
Are there resources or places to learn more about the scripts for "Observatory Startup Procedure" and "Observatory Shutdown Procedure"? Or should I look up some information on how iOptron's mounts or how something like Python can be commanded to perform these kinds of particular actions?
Thanks for your help,

I would like to assemble or write scripts that will allow me to have pre-automated control over slew rates and orientations of my mount. Ideally, something that allows me to set time-tagged commands. For example,
