A short video here:


Leo, you have just created the finest FIT viewer I have ever seen.



I agree, Glenn! It’s super nice.

I have created a Wiki page and it has most of the documentation on it. I’m watching Leo’s video and will update the Wiki as I figure it out.



Thanks for your comments … really appreciated.
Its 2 1/2 months of work …

All the best


The wiki page is excellent, Rowland. Thanks for updating.

Kind regard,


Incredible, Leo. I played with it for all of two minutes before figuring it out. Such an easy viewer to use, with spectacular image results. Thank you!!

Ciao! Great viewer!

Slight issue with my mean calculation?

Providing .FIT for debugging:

Dear entilza … is a beta , you could decide to dont use.
Try to use Voyager and tell if all go ok, i’ll look inside to your header file to understand because also i see something bad in exposure data.

All the best, and welcome in the forum !

Hi LO, I realize it is a beta, I am just reporting an issue I found. Yes this .FIT was taken with other software but I thought you may want to see.

You are welcome … no problem.

Please download this file and overwrite the one in the Voyager directory.
I put in the setup the wrong version of this DLL (i use a custom version of AForge Library but in setup i put ther standard) , tell me if this fix the bug.

All the best

It worked :slight_smile: Wonderful thanks!

Wonderful thank for all.


hi to all,
I apologize for the bad English,
I did some testing on old shots … eos 60d bayer matrix,

this an image using 50% preset button

if I use the mouse wheel in …

and then out back to 50% …

is normal ?

tks LEO :blush:

Bayer matrix … multiple zoom resonance with matrix size create a square.
You can mitigate with activate high quality resize. I dont have actually a DSLR or color camera probably the best is to add debayer and look in color or debayer in grayscale.

yes in HQR the problem disappears

But think about what i said … probably the best is to debayer or debayer in grayscale … i dont know how work the other automation program…

Marzio, i add a new toolbox button for fast switch between high/low quality, you’ll found on 2.1.4 release of Voyager

All the best

Thank you very much Leonardo,

Hi Leo

just a couple off comments about the new viewer :slight_smile:

the activate deactivate button is difficult to differentiate ( tell the difference ) could the colour change be more obvious please-- also would be good if the cursor would read out the adu of the pixel :slight_smile:
lastly in the camera shot settings could we have the option to save or not save the image ( and location ) as most of the time this would be used and looked at in the viewer ( which has a save option )

Many thanks
