Chris,

I tried your tip tonight... and it didn't work. I see no indication of it checking alignment. Are you sure that there is no other setting and/or check box that needs addressing to make this work?

Thanks,

Ron

I set up a schedule last night that did re-align at intervals. Bit of a kludge hack.
I saved a capture sequence file for more frames than I would take (I set it for 500).
Then in the scheduler the first job was set to continue until 10:00pm
2nd job to continue until 11:00pm
and so on.

Ron,

Yeah, I may have to revert to your method. I had high hopes for the alignment check, but either it's not working... or I'm doing it wrong.
