Re: Default directory and asteroid target list

Hi Wayne,
I forgot to add the code relevant to the file name:

fileName=fileName+".fit"
UNQUOTE

Re: Default directory and asteroid target list

Hi Wayne, I solved this kind of problem defining a variable with the name of the directory where I intended to save the observation files. In particular I used this code (some words are in Italian, however it's easy to understand): QUOTE oggi=today() year=left(date,4) ImgPath= "C:\Users\user\Picture...

I've been running a script where if necessary I need to connect a focuser after disconnecting the scope. All functioned correctly until the day before yesterday when due to an unknown reason the system returned the message "Could not connect the device" and stopped the script. I found out the proble...

Re: Connection to aladin website fails on AA7 SP1
