With my slow optics and narrow field, plate-solving works very nicely if I go to the align tab and select ISO6400 and a 4 second exposure, but fails due to not enough stars on the default settings of ISO800 and 1s exposure.
When using the scheduler within kstars, ticking the "Align" box is supposed to get kstars to take a frame and plate-solve it to ensure it is pointing at the target before starting the job. How does it decide what exposure details to use for that capture? If I change the exposure time and ISO in the Align tab this information doesn't get saved into the scheduler list or sequenceQueue files, and I can't find an option to set the default value anywhere. When it does pickup the default value of ISO800/1s the sequence then fails because alignment fails.
