I use Voyager connected to The SkyX to control most things except focus. Everything works very nicely thank you, great program!
I have a small issue with Image file location and naming, mainly because I usually start and connect everything up but also usually want to carry out some image checks before stating a Dragscript.
It’s a bit complicated but let me try and explain
If I am just connected to TSX
I can take a test image and it is saved to my set directory using TSX’s ability to construct a file name full of the information I have set in the file naming dialogue. For example.
Target Light Filter 1.000secs 0.00C 1x1 08.08.2020 0000000019.fit
If I have full connection with Voyager, TSX and Focuslock
The only way I can find to take a test image from withing Voyager is with Camera Shot button in the “OnTheFly” dialogue
If I do this the image is saved in the Voyager Default directory (C:\Users\xxx\Documents\Voyager\FIT) and is named something like TestShot_20200807_210157.fit
This happens even if Voyager is set for a named image directory both in Settings and Sequence
With Full connection Imaging from within Sequence or Dragscript
Voyager saves to the named Voyager image directory.
At present the file name it uses could be one of my previous TSX naming conventions and it comes out as something like
However, this is not my current TSX naming convention and I can’t seem to change it anywhere.
Is this from Voyager? Can it be changed?
With Full connection but using TSX control panel to take a test image
The image is saved to the Default C:\Users\xxx\Documents\Voyager\FIT directory and is named something like VOYAGER Target Light Filter 1.000secs0.00C 1x1 08.08.2020 0000000019.fit – So it has added VOYAGER but still uses the naming convention from TSX.
Also for information, from within TSX when using Voyager I always deselect Autosave but Voyager always turns it back on.
I would find it useful if all my images especially those take from TSX with Voyager connected, were in my selected location.
This is not a big deal, but I would like to understand what is going on.
