Starting a Sequence


Starting a sequence is as easy as clicking a button (or pressing "F5").  Once all of the events are created and the equipment selected just click the "Run Sequence" button on the bottom left of the sequencer dialog.



Pausing a Sequence


When a sequence is running, that same button changes to "Pause Sequence".  Clicking this button will present the following dialog that asks you to determine what type of pause you are after.


Pause (no data loss):


This option will allow the current activity (exposure) to continue.  Once it is finished and saved to disk, the sequence will exit gracefully.  Pausing a sequence will not run end of sequence options such as "Park", "Warm up" and "Auto Guider Stop".



Abort (data loss):


This option will abort the current activity (exposure) and quit immediately.   Aborting a sequence will not run end of sequence options such as "Park", "Warm up" and "Auto Guider Stop".



Resuming a Sequence


After pausing a sequence, resuming is as simple as clicking the "Resume Sequence" button (same button).
