Description

This is a quick process of some data collected as part of continued testing of and practice with Sequence Generator Pro. I'm beginning to get the hang of it.

I did not have suitable darks in my library so a subbed in a longer master dark shot at a higher temperature. It worked okay but there are some calibration artifacts visible in full resolution image.

Mostly this was a test of SGPro's autofocus, meridian flip, and post-flip autoguiding. It seemed to do well with respect to those goals.
