Re: AA4 and SXV-H9C with Autoguider Head

Hi Kevin, does your guide tab look like this? I've used AA since ver. 2 but I don't remember if it's changed since then. If it is the same, in your post you state you press "Start" and expect it to be a guide image. If the guide tab hasn't changed the start button is for the imaging camera! To take ...

Re: AA4 and SXV-H9C with Autoguider Head

It's been a long time since I had an SXV-H9 and SXV guider! I do recall that with the cover on the guider the auto stretch would make the image look white. If you were taking the images with the cap on the guider try a pin hole lens, aluminum foil with a pin hole in it over the front of the guider. ...

Re: Script new functions

Hi Emilio, you can already do this with a script! For High and Low pass use "Image.Macro(n)" You need to set up the macro parameters. Plate solve parameters from the Image Script functions.

Re: Combining images of a different scale

There is a feature under the Image tab called Coregister it will align and scale two images. It works great!
Open the two images you want to combine, then activate the RGB image and click Coregister and it will create an aligned and scaled image to the Luminance image .

Re: ROI

Drag a box on a full frame image the size you want. Then go to the settings tab click on "From selection". The box you drew on the full frame will now be downloaded until you select the "Full image" button.

Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

They should minimize to the lower left screen corner just above the tray!

Re: Initial alignment/Star Atlas/Plate Solve

Hi, in files/preferences/star atlas you need to set the path for catalog 1 to the gscdata file that came with AA.

Re: Sequencer AA7

x = Image.GetPointX
y = Image.GetPointY
Image.Close
Camera.Start(2)
Camera.Wait
Camera.Autofocus(60,x,y)

Yes that's correct.
The number sets the size of the subframe used for guiding. Smaller number smaller subframe!
The X and Y are the coordinates for the subframe center!

Re: Sequencer AA7

Hi Dunmunro, If you add something like this into your script you can select the guide star you want to use for guiding! Just download the field you want to image and draw a box around the star you want to use. Then start your script! x = Image.GetPointX y = Image.GetPointY Image.Close Camera.Start(2...
