NINA plan export feature request
#1
Hi there!  Stumbled on SkyTools 4 recently (followed a link from the article on C/2019 Q4), and it looks super impressive.  Going to do a bit more reading but I'm basically sold.  Planning out targets is always stressful for me since our skies are not suitable for observing most nights...so I really want to make the most of the clear nights we do get. Smile

I was curious if NINA (https://nighttime-imaging.eu/, repo is at: https://bitbucket.org/Isbeorn/nina/src) plan export might be possible sometime in the future?  NINA is another sequencer and control software similar to SGP, but relatively new and under very active development.  It works a lot better/faster for me than SGP so I've pretty much completely switched over.

NINA saves/loads sequences to a simple XML format.  Since ST4 can emit ACP (which I think is just a textual format?), I'm guessing it would be possible to do a similar thing for NINA.  I'm a developer myself, so I know nothing is ever as simple as it sounds though Smile  

Anyhow, ST4 looks fantastic!  Just wanted to raise a feature request for NINA export in case you have some spare cycles.  Cheers!

I am also transitioning over to NINA.  I am an existing user of the software and love it. I would love to see the capability of exporting to NINA as well.  I know many who are either switching or have switched.
