Unable to schedule message
#4

I'm seeing the same thing with some projects that ST4 says "Unable to Schedule" and I can't figure out why.

If the message could be enhanced with information about why ST4 is unable to schedule, that would be immensely helpful, such as "Unable to schedule - Minimum Quality (IQ) not achieved"  or "Unable to schedule - Moon too close" etc.

Thanks,
Rowland

That's a good suggestion, and I will look at implementing it, but there are so many variables, particularly when it com,es to an imaging system that is not set up correctly, that it may be impossible. I mean, "You don't have enough aperture" or "You camera isn't sensitive enough" or "You have your lat/lon reversed for your location" are difficult things to even pin down as the issue. Assuming everything is set up properly, in practice, it's almost always Min. IQ.

Check your imaging system settings carefully. Check the exposure preview on your imaging project. Open the Exposure Calculator by right-clicking on the project in the Scheduler. These are really the only practical ways to discover what might be causing the problem, assuming its not simply the Min. IQ. And if it is the Min. IQ, ensure your weather selections are set properly. In the end, it may simply be telling you to wait for a better night. That's kinda the whole point. :-)
Clear skies,
