Re: Dark Calibrarion frames

As long as the darks and lights have the same exposure time you will be fine. To scale you would need to take darks with a longer exposure then your lights and a bias frame. There is a separate section in preprocessing that handles dark scaling, just don't use that feature.

Select how to build the final image and the master dark frame and flat field. "Sum" and "Average" are best methods in terms of...

Re: BASIC Programming Language

I've had no experience with BASIC but by looking at the script commands and examples in the documentation I've been able to cobble together a collection of scripts that I use all the time. When I get stuck or frustrated I ask a question here or send Fabio an email. The sequencer also has a helpful f...

For flip detection you could use "Guider.LostStar" in your imaging script. If it returns True then have the script go to a sub script that starts with a pause long enough to be sure the flip has completed. Then takes an image, solve and sync to the image and GoTo your target. re calibrate your guide...

Re: Preprocessing command

I'm not aware of a processing command. You could definitely script some of your processing using the image, star, masking commands and the macro script command.

Re: autofocusing noobie q

Yes that is how it works.
The focuser must be ASCOM.
To activate the Autofocus you need to put 99999 in the focus section.

Here are screen shots of the sections I referred to.
