Hello fellow users,
As a new user to this software solution to automate our imaging I am interested in how we would fully automate the clear nights observatory running. As I understand so far we have to put together a file that covers one set of exposures and the associated number, exposure length etc, then whenever it’s clear execute the parameters contained within the file (unless the weather intervenes).
Now looking forward at this software having the ability to set various targets that are positioned at the optimum area of your sky and deciding which one to run and if the session is interrupted then upon its continuation decide if the previous target is still in the optimum position to continue or move onto a new target.
Firstly let me say I personally have no programming experience so have to rely on others who develop programs and routines.
I also appreciate time constraints that people have.
Looking on the forum I see that there is a post started by Rowland Archer working with another user (mikefulb) and they both are looking into what I was trying to explain above.
That particular thread has moved over to discussing the viewer so I thought I would create this posting in some form of establishing where things may be up to that all users are using to get towards full automation solutions.
Full marks to all involved with this.
