I acquired a FBC from Lacerta recently.
This device turns your flat panel into a kind of flash device, enabling very short exposures when taking flats.
My Atik16200 (mechanical shutter) has a min exp time of 0.2 sec.
This usually is far to long on my 10"-f4 newton for Lum and RGB.
Unless I change the amount of layers of T-shirts and table cloth for every different filter set, this device can make the FP flash for a fraction of a second after a set delay to allow te shutter to open (and close). It does a training exercise to establish the optimum exposure time and then generates a flats-sequence.
Lacerta does not provide the software (only for stand alone Dslr) for CCD camera’s.
APT has a module build in their program to control this device.
Of course it would be very useful (for me !!) to be able to control this device from within Voyager.
Are there any more users out there who would support my feature request?
Or am I a lone wanderer . . . . . .
