Unable to schedule message
#11
If you open the exposure calculator directly by right-clicking on those two projects, does anything stand out as being wrong? Make sure the weather is set exactly the same. Are the lines there on the calculator? Check every filter and set focal changers and binning to match the errant projects.

  No

   It is

   Yes

   It all looks good. 

I'll attach an image showing both the exposure calculator and the Schedule browser for NGC 6188.

Thanks. Please show me the Exposure Goals tab of the NGC 6188 project.

Thanks for the screenshots.

The first thing I noticed is that there are no values under the Equ. Exp column. That usually indicates that the SNR calculation has failed, presumably because there is not enough signal. The source of the problem is found on the bottom right: there is nothing listed under emission line strengths. I created a project for the same object and there was data there. At the moment I can't explain why there would be no data for you. My recollection is that if there is no actual data, it is estimated internally (as indicated), which means it does not depend on a database file that could become corrupted. So it is difficult to explain why yours would be different from mine. I will have to look into it further.

In the meantime:

1. Please first verify that you are running the latest version (4.0e)

2. Just to be sure, please re-install. No need for a clean install (don't delete your "SkyTools 4" folder in Documents). Just uninstall and the install again. Let me know if the emission line data shows up on the Project afterward.

I'm running 4.0e.

The only setup executable I have is from January 2018. After I uninstall, should I use that one and then let it auto-update, or is there a more recent setup file I should run?

Thanks,
Rowland

Thanks Greg.
I downloaded, uninstalled ST4 and installed from the download, and then ran the Updater to get to 4.0e.

Unfortunately, the behavior is still the same - unable to schedule NGC 6188 even though the exposure calculator shows some good periods and a high blue line.

Best,
Rowland

Hi Rowland,

We need to focus on the root problem. There are too many variables that could affect whether or not a target schedules or not. Try making a new project for this object. On the Exposure Goals tab, is there emission line data listed on the bottom right of the dialog?

Hi Greg,
No emission line data is listed for NGC 6188:

This looks like your original project... did you create a new one?
