Search for configurations within a time interval. You can select the start date and end date of interval and also the time step (daily, hourly and monthly).
In this case the time zone, latitude, longitude and daylight are typed only once on start date. All other chart from the interval are computed using this values.

It search for configuration between static charts. It can be used to find configuration between a natal chart and specific time chart for example.
This analysis is not counting the configuration that might exist in a single chart only.
In the result grid C1 planets are the planets from the first chart and C2 planets from the second chart.
For this type of analysis the planets selection it will apply only for second chart. For example if you are not selecting the moon the results will contain all configuration that contain moon from the first chart but not the moon from second chart.

Combined analysis
This type of analysis allows you to search configuration that might appear between a fixed chart and a time interval chart. It's very usefull for searching configuration made by planets in your natal chart and planets in transit in a specific time interval.
In the result grid C1 planets are the planets from the first chart and C2 planets from the second chart.
