Re: Setteling time when using Center

Hi Rudi, the center script has been working well for me so far. Here is the script I used for years to center. You can adjust the pause to meet your needs. raOri = Telescope.RA deOri = Telescope.DEC Camera.Binning(3) Camera.Start(5) Camera.Wait ra,de = Image.EstimateRADEC ok = Image.FindCoordinates(...

Re: Stacking leads to elongated stars in the corners

Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Center script command, also from help file. Telescope.AutoCenter(exposure, binning, [ra,dec]) Starts the automatic centering with plate solving, using the new Centering Window of Astroart 8 SP1. The script will be paused until the procedure is complete, then use the function: Telescope.AutoCenterOK(...

Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Hi Rudi, here are the parameters for PHD script functions in AA help file. Start guiding. It's possible to specify the three parameters for settling (pixels, time, timeout) as described in the PHD EventMonitoring interface: https://github.com/OpenPHDGuiding/phd2/wiki/EventMonitoring , for example: P...

Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

I agree with what Duncan said. I used PHD for quite a few years, since the multi star guider was released I have been using it. The calibration also works much better then the previous versions.

Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Sounds like you get out about as often as I do! :( . I'm going to start building an observatory soon, hopefully I'll get more imaging done! BTW prior to AA8 I suggested to Fabio that it would be great if a script could be executed from the sequencer, that would solve your problem.

Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Hi Rudi, you can convert your sequence to a script. Sequencer menu - create similar script and then add PHD.Pause PHD.Resume into the script.

Re: Subframe From selection choice

Hi, maybe I don't understand what you are asking? Here is how I select a subframe. Take a full frame exposure. Drag a box on the image I want as a subframe and then select "From selection".
