Hi,

Is there a way I can set a delay in the Scheduler after the Track/Focus/Align/Guide steps but before the start of imaging. The reason is that my mount takes about 15-20 mins to settle down so that my RMS is good enough to start imaging. I can't see a way to do this in the Scheduler module in Ekos.

Workaround. Place one 15 min throw away job.

Or plan 15 to 20 minutes more for each job. That way, if your mount settles before then you will have additional data to use.

Another good idea but I wish there was a way to set the delay before capture.
