I was hoping to try to test this for myself but the weather has been terrible. Alternately I am trying to work out a way to test with simulators.
If I created two sequences with different equipment profiles (with the same equipment being shared between the two profiles, the difference being in the focus settings) and if I called them one after the other in a dragscript, would I run in to errors or would the two sequences simply “Bring” their different focus settings with them?
Having recently found that my OSC camera responds quite well to NB filters in front of the bayer matrix, I am collecting equipment to take advantage of it (Filter wheel and filters) which I will eventually use with a mono camera.
Due to the bayer matrix I found I needed some unusual focus settings to get it to focus with a HA filter. It seems to be related to the “Holes” in the pixel brightness values due to the green and blue pixels not responding very well to HA, which affected the HFR readings. If sequences with different focus settings “Bring” their focus settings with them when called by a dragscript it would simplify shooting OSC and NB on the same night. If it would just result in errors I can either sit up and load the new profile when I want to change from OSC to NB, or just shoot only one data type in a night. Either way I am keen to use a filter wheel as tearing down the imaging train to add or remove filters would get old very quickly.
I understand that I am trying to do something unusual so if the response is “You want to do WHAT?” I don’t have a problem with that.
To reiterate the question, if I open Voyager, connect equipment then call up sequences created with differences in the profiles, are the profile differences applied to the relevant sequneces or will I get errors, or will Voyager operate with the loaded profile when the gear was connected?
