    Default My First ACP run

    I started my first monitor run tonight at my remote observatory here from Texas Star Party.

    Not sure how to attach a log but this one is short, see below. My plan was to refocus every 40 min but I think that failed, so I set up he run to take every 4 images changing filters

    I have used other programs for automation, this one is fast. I will tell you anyone new to ACP needs to use the simulator, I learned a ton doing that. Everything is working, using aquire star on every filter change and guiding great. waiting for the pier flip now.

    here is my log that has a errro, I am not sure wht this means at the end
