Thanks. Since I updated to 3.4 I seem to lose my settings and plans when I stay up apt every now and then

Hi Chris,

Could you give a bit more info? When do you loose settings - every time you start APT or when you install a new version?

I recently upgraded to 3.40. When I started this version I lost my plans that I'd made. I remade them, but then twice after that the plans weren't there when I started APT - it also reset my settings but I could recover these as I'd saved a settings file.

Edit: I've just uploaded and installed 3.42. All my plans and settings are there!

Hi Chris,

The settings losing on setup happens very rarely and I still can't find the reason My belief is that is related to rights, but without possibility to reproduce it is just theory.

The other case for losing settings is usually happens when switching to or from use of "Run As Administrator". That mode has own settings from the regular mode. Could it be the reason?

I'll try that when/if it happens again and post on the APT forum. And it's not happening now.

Thanks Ivo. Otherwise APT had been excellent !!

One more year is almost finished… We hope that it was full of adventures, challenges and happy moments It is time for a Christmas present – APT 3.50 which comes with our special thanks for your support for APT during 2017 and in the past!

The long awaited and highly requested integration with Stellarium is available now! Interesting addition is that APT’s import coordinates features can act as ASCOM bridge/proxy when a scope without direct Stellarium support is used.

As usual for a round number version there are other things in the package The complete list of the changes is available here: http://ideiki.com/astro/usersguide/what_is_new_.htm

We wish you a very exciting 2018 and will give our best to contribute with interesting news

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Awesome Ivo, thanks for all your efforts

As an aside, did you ever get any interesting feedback from Fujifilm? I moved from Canon to Fujifilm for my wide field (although I use APT with my ZWO) and it’s almost archaic going back to an intervalometer

Many thanks Dunk!

There are some news from Fujifilm. We had communication (including snail mail ), however their API supports just few high-end models which makes support implementation not much reasonable

Thanks for your response Ivo, I feared as much, their own software is similarly useless for the entry-level models.

IMO if I’m going to spend $2000 on a camera, I want it cooled
