Scheduler during the day
#36
Hi Greg,

I found the source of the problem, but I don't fully understand why it happened yet. Thankfully there is a workaround. Open your affected imaging projects one at a time (it appears to primarily affect galaxies). Select the Exposure Goals tab. Turn your attention to the status area on the bottom right. It will say "MagA" with a string of numbers. These numbers were put there for debugging but I left them in for the time being. What they represent is the surface brightness of the galaxy in mag/arc-sec^2 in the U, B, V, R, and I filters. These values should be in the range 21-25 or so. I am seeing values that are much too bright (small and even negative numbers). This is what is causing the problem. Those numbers tell SkyTools that the galaxy is much brighter than it really is. It only affects the project, not the target object, which is why the Target Selection and Exposure Calculator works properly.

To fix the problem, look on the upper left where you can select what part of the galaxy you are exposing for, such as "Main extent." Try re-selecting it to "Main Extent" (or whatever) again. The numbers should be correct. Save your project. This should fix the project permanently.

I tried creating some projects, and the problem occurs when you apply your saved template. Until I have a fix, when you use your template be sure to re-select the part of the galaxy that you are exposing for to properly set the surface brightness. Double-check by looking at the surface brightness's listed.
Clear skies,
Greg
