#1 I have created a specific set of settings  re gain, and temp in my equipment profile, which I saved 2) created new sequence "with profile" selecting profile from #1. I decide to go to control panel and ad hoc change settings for that sequence. 3) Later, I create a new sequence, by loading with same profile, #1.
However that sequence retains the settings that were changed in the control panel, instead of using the settings defined in the equipment profile which was loaded in the sequence. How can I avoid this, or, as a matter of course, do  users always have to both load a new sequence with the specific equipment profile, and check the control panel?

Another question:

I have found it easier to create a separate equipment profile for the same exact equipment but with different gain settings. Is there a better way to have more than one gain setting in an equipment profile, and when creating a new sequence, have the specific gain that is wanted?  How are people doing that?

Thank you!


well when I defined my channels in SGP ascom device, there are fields in the equip profile that are blank and I had to label them. I came up w those abbreviations.

regarding #2, I am not sure what you mean. I need to think about this some more.  Thank you again.




Thank you,

SGP should have identified the flats as such, as they were in the sequence.  But here are the fits headers. I do not know enough to understand the nuances but, I am not sure why the FIts header for the flat is not specified as flat. -- Actually I see that it is. I am not sure why this is happening then. Rather odd to me. There is supposed to me a way to enter in the flats through custom. I did that, just added flats in custom, defined the exp time, bining, and there was a question mark for name, I left it w question mark, and also tried with a different name. That didn't solve the problem.


This is unfortunate.  Flats were created using SGP flat wizard. All files were created in SGP.  Is there any fix for this, or is it a defect in the BPP script?

Thank you!

you could say the same thing about everything here. No one should post questions or comments instead we need to search around.

Please let the admin know to delete this entire message board since everyone can just look at the PI website.

well if this is the case, I think I am updated to the most current version.  Not sure why I have no access. I know there is documentation on imageintegration but not showing for me.

well the exception is if you have very short subs otherwise I do not have a dog in that fight I just want the documentation.

Sad. Somewhere there is documentation on ImageIntegration, with graphs too. I was watching the Keller video, it was a workshop video on the interface. Warren was talking about how after 30 subs you do not got a substantial improvement in add'l integrations for each add'l sub and there was a cool graph from the documentation. Where would I find that?

"This is an outrage!"

no one responded to this and I am having the same issue.

Does no one know why tool documentation does not exist?

omg, that is the issue! I missed that. it is 666 FL data (951 reduced with .7)

Will try again. thank you!

well nothing I could do could get this to plate solve but here is a link to the image. Maybe you can get it to work?

I have looked around and I am not the first to have this issue and I have tried the fix suggested: using the add custom and changing the filter name. but still no dice. I leave the filter name as ? as suggested in the field.  Otherwise how does this get done?

thank you!

Hello, I am getting the same error I would get in star alignment / unable to get putative stars. Trouble is there are not that many adjustments I can make in PCC. I changed the slide in log sensitive to the max on left and increased noise detection but still cannot get a plate solve. any suggestions?

I was able to plate solve my image of IC 405,  but not of M33.

Thank you!
