I am just learning to modify plans and wondered if this modification would take darks at the end of the run.



End part of original plan:


#dither ; Automatic dithering
#count 2,3,3,4,4,4
#filter Blue,Red,Blue,Green,Red,Blue
#interval 900,900,900,900,900,900
#binning 1,1,1,1,1,1
#posang 231.6
SH2-136 RGB Long 21:15:45.55 68 19' 20.3"
#dir ; Revert to default images folder
#dither 0 ; Disable dithering
;
; -----------
; END OF PLAN
; -----------
;

Darks added to end:

#dither ; Automatic dithering
#count 2,3,3,4,4,4
#filter Blue,Red,Blue,Green,Red,Blue
#interval 900,900,900,900,900,900
#binning 1,1,1,1,1,1
#posang 231.6
SH2-136 RGB Long 21:15:45.55 68 19' 20.3"
#dither 0 ; Disable dithering
#count 10
#binning 1
#filter R ; Needed or not?
#interval 900
#dark
#dir ; Revert to default images folder
;
; -----------
; END OF PLAN
; -----------
;

I am also unsure if filter needs to be specified anyway. Help says yes but some samples posted elsewhere here say not.

Also, is there a way to park the scope (or at least stop it tracking) before the darks using the plan? If there is, I cannot find it in the help.


I do see how to close the roof but generally would rather it stay open if it is still dark, for camera/thermal reasons.

Thanks
