    Default Big night with ACP

    I just wanted to say THANKS to Bob for ACP's reliability. Sure, automated rigs are challenging to get tweaked to perfection, but last night I ran 6 chained plans over 11 hours, nailing 30 targets in 3 filters including 2 eclipser stares and 28 Miras, for 191 science images. All the flips happened and every autoguide worked and every image was centered well within 30 arcseconds, then it tucked down and took the panel flats.

    My new rig was built for brute reliability, and ACP did not let me down in its part at coordinating everything and maximizing exposure duty cycle--all while I watched a movie then caught some sleep. Well done.

    Wow, thanks Eric!! I really appreciate your taking the time to post here. Usually "no news is good news" for software developers, but it's really nice to hear when someone is happy with its capabilities and reliability.
