Re: Start script from external program

Hello, maybe the problem is that: text = "None" may be 16 bit Unicode, while a 8 bit ASCII string is expected. If this is the problem, here are a couple of solutions: text = "None" my_dll.AASendCommand(VAL, text.encode("ascii")) or just for tests: text = b"None" my_dll.AASendCommand(VAL, text) see: ...

Re: Shifting a set of images by a given shift (dX,dY) depending on image

Hello, the script command is Image.Shift(dx,dy) . On a group of images there could be three solutions: 1) A script which opens, process and saves images, maybe using FindFiles(...) 2) A script from a template: menu Templates / Selected images, (menu from the script window). 3) A script to be applied...

Hello, verify if the file: " sbigudrv.dll " is installed in the system.
This is the file installed by the SBIG Universal Driver setup.

Re: Delete button on browser

Hello, it's already possible, but it's required to "select" the files.
To select, right-click or press ENTER, then it's possible to use the "Menu" button which has commands for moving and deleting files.

Re: Start script from external program

Hello, it's possible with the Remote Control SDK.
In that SDK there are not examples with Python, but it's not difficult: just import the DLL and implement the "AASendCommand" function.

Re: Graxpert fit file

Hello, maybe the file is saved as floating point with range 0.0 - 1.0 ?
In this case you may fix the visualization pressing F4 or clicking the Status Bar of the image.
To restore the image to the 16 bit dynamic, use: Multiply constant 65535.

Re: Deconvolution Fade

Hi, the visualization is different: V = 930 - 65535 in the first image and V = 930 - 118200 in the second image. This could be related to the highlighted star, which was saturated, so during the deconvolution the peak went from 65535 to 118200. It's possible to press CTRL + E to bring both images to...

Re: Demosaic - extracting green channels

In binning 2x2 (option "Green channel 2x2") they are averaged, and it can be proven this way: using the Edit Pixel window set one of the pixels to 1'000'000 and the resulting pixel will have a value of approx 500'000 (disable temporarily the option Hot Pixels in Demosaic)

Re: Automating stacking and reduction in sets of 5 images

Hi, it can be done with a script, calling the Preprocessing function for every mini-set of 5 images. I can show an example, what is the name of the sequence files? Is this for an animation? (so 60 frames composed of 5 images each?)

Re: Processing Seestar S50 images

Are these RAW files similar to those produced by DSLRs? If yes, you may use the same workflow. Feel free to send me a sample image for a better advice.
This little device seems really nice, I would like to have the time to use one. Since it's altazimuthal, does it include a derotator too?

Re: Processing Seestar S50 images

Hi Andrew, I see that it can produce FITS files, are these already demosaiced, or just RAW?
