DragScrit to test unguided exposure in various point of the sky

Like the object … i wrote a DragScript to test tracking for unguide exposure for a friend with a GM mount. I sharing with you.

This script using a counter that increase by 1 and looping in a series of skypoint where do 300,600,900s shot and then go to next point. In the attached example there are 3 points and after end, but you can add how many point you need.

Voyager using ALT/AZ mount goto to better cover all the sky.
I hope someone can found it useful or interesting for know the big power of DragScript.
