I am so happy, today was the first time ever that i see my observatory run unatended, no intervention from me.....

the fact that it can stop and start by itself is a dream....

it did this today:

Power up all the equipment

Connect to the equipment

Start the automatic secuences prodecures using astronomical darkness time

Open the roof

Unpark and Slew the scope

Blind plate solve and sync

Start a sequence

When clouds came:

Close roof

stop tracking

wait for clouds to go...

wait 1 minute after clouds left

reopen the roof

start tracking

platesolve and restart the sequence....

Clouds Again

Close roof

stop tracking

wait for clouds to go...

wait 1 minute after clouds left

reopen the roof

start tracking

platesolve and restart the sequence....


THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!

Now, if it could mow the lawns and vacuum the floors it would be perfect.

But sounds brilliant Diego.
