I just returned from remote imaging location and used Voyager for the first time in the field. One of the problems I’ve encountered happened due to failure to plate solve the second target (log file shows meridian flip, settling time and slewing to target followed by second settling time). The DragScript was attempting to run second sequence with “point to target on start” was defined, which failed and I’ve lost about 90 minutes of imaging time. After reviewing Voyager logfile I found the filename which contained the image that it was trying to plate solve (SyncVoyager_20210807_020126.fit), but unfortunately, the entire folder containing these temporary files is empty. I’d be happy to check what exactly went wrong with plate solving but it’s impossible - this file is deleted and is not found in recycle bin and cannot be recovered (tried winfr tool without success).
I’m using ASTAP with H17 database, it worked fast and perfect with the first target, but failed after slewing to a different target. The mount settle time (I have A-P Mach1) is 10 seconds, it’s the same setting which worked fine in SGP. I have no clue what caused the failure and deleted SyncVoyager_xxx.fit file makes it more difficult to understand the issue.
