Summary0001974: Reliable abort of sequence
DescriptionCCDCIEL works pretty well. The only problem I would like to have solved is an reliable sequence abort. Very often after a manual sequence stop, some processes continue (or I can't start manual focus routine) and only way to resolve it is to stop and restart the program.

TagsNo tags attached.

Here an example. I stopped the sequence, The green light turned red but the sequence keeps on going. The sequence can only be stopped by closing the program. Reason I stopped the sequence because the mount was showing drift while doing an autofocus and I decided to stop the sequence and try to start an other sequence (and object) . Full log attached

While the ight was red, I tried to start the new sequence:

I got the same problem.
Until a fix, the stop button in the capture tool can stop a "wild running" sequence in my setup.

Attached an other example. See the last part of the log. I tried to stop the sequence while the focus routine was just started. There was no way to stop/abort it, except by closing the program. I didn't try the stop button of the capture tool as suggested by Thomas.

Later, yes the stop button of the camera menu can stop it. :)

This is fixed by:

Most important point is removing CancelAutofocus:=false; in Tf_sequence.EndSequence()
Other changes are to speedup the stop process.
