So now I’m running more automated sessions with Voyager I wanted a way to change the gain of my ASI1600MM-Cool between LRGB and narrowband sequences.
This is a quick test:
It is an AutoHotKey script, a VBS script to launch the ASI Setup dialog, and a BAT file you can call as an external script to change the camera settings.
The AHK script accepts parameters like:
gain=200 offset=50 usb=90
You have to give at least one.
There is some sanity checking but I’m more releasing this as a proof of concept and USE AT YOUR OWN RISK obviously!
The main weakness as I see it is the control widgets in the ASI Setup dialog don’t have nice labels to use to select them so it is all by X/Y offsets within the dialog box. So if the dialog ever changes, etc the widgets won’t be found and it will fail.
I’m hoping a better AHK scripter than me can make it more foolproof.
