With a lot of help from Colin ( endless thanks for Colin ), I'm starting to move closer to a stable platform. My first major problem seems to be from a fairly new Win 10 machine that turns out to be a POS. Moved to even newer Win 10 machine, and I'm starting to make progress. A couple of small items to figure out which I'm sure is configuration based. And I should be good to go. I do have a couple of questions 1: After I have the guider locked on a star & I start an exposure, there seems to be a 5 second " Guider Settling" delay. Is there some way I can adjust that time? I looked all over but didn't see anything. 2: Filter 8 is supposed to be the simulated scope cap for taking dark frames. Is there a way to bypass that warning box to "Cap the telescope"? What happened to me was last Friday night, after the clouds rolled in, I setup some auto-exposures to collect two sets of DARK frames. I setup with 21 x 180 secs, Then 15 x 600 second. I clicked the start button & "Cap Telescope" warning came up. I just clicked ok & it started with the first set. I went to bed. The next morning, I found that none of the second set (600 second) DARKs was taken & the Cap Telescope warning box was displayed. Thanks, Carl.
