This is something I want to add but probably not before version 2.0, after the new scheduler is implemented.
At the moment it is even difficult to stop a sequence, see 0001974 .
So restarting after that can be challenging.
We also need to clarify what the pause button do exactly, do it abort the current operation or wait for completion ?
Waiting can be long in the case of an exposure, it can also be long and useless in the case of auto-focus.
Aborting must be done in a way the operation can be restarted, ensuring the telescope is not moving away, or the camera is not let in a unusable state.
I agree it is a good idea. Sometimes I'm not happy with the focus and would like to have the possibility to start an extra autofocus run. An other reason could be a sudden loss of guiding due to mechanical problems and you want to reposition the telescope pointing. A third reason could be the desire to modify the sequence halfway.
I assume it is difficult to implement. It is a wish, not a must. :)
IIt is a wish for 2.0.
After pressing pause there might be a ask from CCDCiel :
1. Pause and discard runnung exposure
2. Pause and complete running exposure
3. Pause after completion of running step
This is solved with the new option "Keep completion status" available in next version 0.9.57.
You can simply use the Stop button to interrupt the sequence and click Start when ready to continue.
The new Reset button clear the completion status and allow to restart the full sequence from the beginning.
