Great! Just an FYI, here’s some additional info from my conversation with Richard
Regarding the 3 files, will we be able to do the Sky X file naming options for the LG and HG images, or just the Merged images?
All three will obey our naming conventions, including filter names. The only difference is there will be an HG/LG appended to the raw individual readouts.
what we’re finding is that we get better results doing separate dark/flat calibration of the LG and HG images BEFORE the merge rather than after.
Yes, this is expected and will be the recommended way to do this. We do of course still need “a” image to display in the fits viewer though, so there’s that. It may also actually work “well enough” to calibrate the merged file depending on how much work the user wants to put into it. Some experimentation is still needed along these lines.
Will you offer an API method for 3rd parties to access the individual subs rather than just the merged?
The current API can be used to get the name and path of the image file just saved. Just append HG/LG before the .fits to access the raw filts files. I might be wrong, but I don’t think there’s a scripted way to read the raw data anyway… if there is, it’s not likely we’ll add anything for Kepler and he’ll need to just read the FITS files directly.
PPS just an fyi I’m leaving for Oregon Star Party on July 29th…hoping to have driver in hand! LoL.
I’ll try and get you going by then
