  1. I should have added that if you want to make dawn flats, you cannot just add this on to the end of a normal sequence.

Having retired at the end of 2013, I decided I needed a new hobby, so installed (with the help of Rupert from Astrograph) a new ASA system at the E-Eye facility near Fregenal de la Sierra, Spain.

If the sun angle has reached 0 degrees, the scope will start to slew immediately after you select the configuration file. Therefore, you need to open the roof before selecting the file! Sequence does not automatically open the roof in this mode (for some strange reason....). 2. The START @TIME and RUN NOW k
