Depends on how you have set up your install script. If you specify 'sudo make install' then it will install and overwrite the previous installation. If you just compile, you can run that version by calling up kstars in the build directory while leaving your (old, stable, nightly,....) installation untouched.

Bug fix for correct handling of job stage when the guiding state has been reached
OK. Not much success I'm afraid. Even when I cover the guidescope, the guiding continues without any stars (sic). I managed one abort. log attached.
This may have something to do with hot pixels but I thought SEP looked after that. Subtracting a single dark frame doesn't help either. I think it introduces more noise. Maybe we need a dark library of averaged dark frames as in PHD2 or a minimum hfd for star choice to prevent guiding on hot pixels. Or WHY.
Here's the latest test.
Problem: The scheduler does not move to the next job. There are three batches of ngc6888 followed by 8 batches og m31. The scheduler fails after the change of target.
Poo, it looks like it is awfully more complicated than I thought. One problem that I see is that it might happen that an aborted guiding is provoked by the scheduler - e.g. by a meridian flip. OK, we could discuss whether it is a good idea that the mount simply starts to slew as long as no capture is running - and leading subsequently to an aborted guiding. But that's how it is currently.
Conclusion: We at least need to carefully think about this feature. So sorry, it seems like a longer way...

is this perhaps why the scheduler failed in my test last night?
Just trying to organise time for tonight as I have other stuff to test too but of course I'll persist here if I can be of assistance.
