Description

I decided to try out the advanced sequencer in NINA 1.11 Nightly 039 and this was a good test target. The new sequencer is game changing as you can do some fancy scripting for the entire evening. This is an early look at the new work from the developers - I'm excited to see where this goes down the line. All this great open source astro software that is being developed is just phenomenal.
