Hi Leo,
Is there any documentation available for the new Donuts feature? I looked at the wiki but did not see it there.
Craig

Hi Craig,

this version is for the developer of Donuts, He must write code to talk with Voyager Application Server. I don’t know so much about , its a system used for help on exoplanet transit research.

This is a custom development asked to me. Wiki will be update when all work Donuts side.

All the best

Thanks Leo. I do a lot of work using precision tracking and would like to converse more with the developer. I can share my experiences with ATrack which may provide additional insights to the Donuts developer. Have them private message me directly if they are interested.
Craig

I think these are 2 different things but you can contact @gboyle in PM in this forum fo rmore info about.
For Atrack, Voyager Custom development is a service opened to all of you.

All the best

Hi Craig,
I’m developing an interface to Voyager for my Donuts code. I’d be happy to chat with you about autoguiding, thanks.

More information on the shift measuring algorithm can be found on my github (GitHub - jmccormac01/Donuts: Donuts AG & image alignment code). It’s been a while since I updated the repo but the code has been stable for quite some time.

The image shift measuring algorithm is available through PyPi (pip install donuts) or from the source above. Documentation is here Donuts — donuts v0.2.4.

The Voyager wrapper around the Donuts algorithm is currently being developed. I have a wrapper for ACP also and am happy to discuss any customisation people might be interested in.

A word of caution, I’m an astronomer and not a professional software developer :slight_smile:

Cheers
James

Hi James,
