For imaging, I've been set up for unattended operation for over 10 years, now. Having to be at the mount toAs I think you know, automation is not 100% reliable. Since you would be at a dark site, the value of good imaging results will be important, so I would be surprised if you didn't want to check progress occasionally!
But let's think this through. Say that APPM could be automated. That wouldn't prevent APPM from getting hung up on a bad plate-solve or other error. How would you detect this and delay your automated imaging session?
If this isn't something that neither you nor Astro-Physics, wants to pursue, that's fine. I'll find a workflow thatUnderstood, and thanks for posting your idea. I have put it on my list of potential future features.
