I know I have asked about dual camera support on a single computer before and I understand that it’s not possible at the moment. So now I’ve had a look through the Application Server Protocol and it mentions that it can accept more than one connection and that got me thinking.
My goal is to have a really dumb ‘slave’ application that does nothing else apart from:
- Connect a camera, focuser and filter wheel
- Manage the cooling
- Change Filters
- Take images
- Do focus runs
I’m a .NET developer so now I am thinking that I could start a project to implement this by using the Voyager Application Server. So when running I would have the normal Voyager application doing all the work as normal but additionally this separate ‘slave app’ would also connect to the Voyager server and use it to control a separate camera, filter wheel and focuser.
But before I dive in I just wanted to check that this is possible?
