How to get the first light with Astoberry Server #46998
Great video, love the multi desktop feature, is that part of raspbian, or a feature of Astroberry...?

How to get the first light with Astoberry Server #47677
Great work indeed (astroberry & this video), thanks for that.
But the Video stops short before my Questions are.
I´m thinkin about the sequences and the planner. When I create a sequence (LRGB) with more than one Image per filter,lets say 3, the sequence ist worked as follows. LLL,RRR,GGG,BBB.
But I want LRGB,LRGB,LRGB and so on.
What I do now is, i create a sequence of LRGB with only one Image per filter and in the planing tool I select repeat for 3 or more runs. But I think this is not the Right way.
Perhaps you extend your Video with this section (I searched for that anywhere)
And please, the Music not so loud in the video, your voice is hard to understand.

One reason would be because you want data from all filters before the clouds arrive. It needs a system where the filters are parfocal or at least have a reliable focus offset or most of your time will be spent focusing.
I don't see a reason not to use mutiple sequences to get this behaviour.

For example, I have an object that needs a lot of images, perhaps 30 á 5min. I want for each channel the same count. Don´t matter how much, but the same count.
With LLLRRRGGGBBB I only can hope that the weather good will be with me to finish my session.
With LRGB,LRGB.... I have a much better chance to have a complete set of images.
Another reason is, for example the first half of the night the conditions are top, the second half the seeing, the transparency and so on is bad. With LLLL I must finish somehow, with LRGB I can say, stop for the rest of the night and I work with that what I´ve got upt to now.
Up to now I work with maxim DL and this is the normal way of imaging.
Focussing is not the problem, therefore is the focus offset I measured once. Ho ever, my filters are homofocal.

Ok, thanks a lot for your Help.
Where can I place Feature Requests ? (Sorry, I´m new to this all)
I miss this function really.
Maxim has both functions, normal is LRGB
That what we here use is called "Group by Slot"
Also another idear:
In the Indi Web Manager. Is it possible to integrate a Shut Down Button for the Raspi ?
To shut down the system I change to VNC and shut it down this way or I go via astroberrys wlan and shut it down there. This is a bit laborious.
I don´t think i can remove power without that
