ASICAP v1.5 Auto Run Issue

Post by AZJohnnyC » Thu Mar 28, 2019 12:04 am


Recently I've begun experimenting with ASICAP v1.5 Auto Run. With my ZWO ASI1600MM Pro and 8-position EFW hooked up, I've tried too many times to get Auto Run to follow through with an LRGB sequence of single 5-minute-long exposures. For some reason that I have yet to understand, the sequence was successful on only one occasion.

Each time, I've set up Auto Run to expose LRGB (in that order) at 300,000 ms, Gain at 300, Limit at 1 frame each, Delay of 2 seconds. Aside from my one successful sequence, my attempts begin (and end) with the status of "L" indicating that an exposure has begun -- but there is no percentage of progress displayed. Nothing further happens. And to my knowledge, I didn't do anything differently the one time that I got this to work.

Is this a known issue? Is there some secret step that I've overlooked? Several times through the PDF Help Doc has not shown me what I should be doing differently. I'm open to any insight and/or helpful suggestions here.

Thank you,
