Note: App mode settings are saved for all modes once they're set - to get unlimited tracking afterwards (so that the mount doesn't stop tracking after the previous number of photos specified), make sure you program the app with sidereal rate and the No. of Photos box unchecked before you exit APP mode (and hit run briefly, then stop), which will allow STAR mode to rotate continuously.
