Re: Using FF Focus in sequence

I've tested the new functionality in SP6a, and it works like a charm.
Thanks a lot Fabio ...

Re: Using FF Focus in sequence

Hi Iver. That would also work. I think that Fabio will think of something for next version.

Re: Using FF Focus in sequence

I tried the script last night, it didn't work, but that was my mistake. I had made an error, when noting the filters focus offsets. Last night I got it correct. Test focus positions: H-a focus position 2753 OIII focus position 3084 SII focus position 3087 Offsets relative to H-alpha: H-a relative po...

IC1795 - Fish Head Nebula in SHO - Hubble Palette

The true dark nights have returned here at 55° north, so it's now again possible to do some decent deep sky observations. The true darkness only last three hours per night, but that will do. I have just recently gotten a S-II filter, I got my astro camera last year, and started with L, R, G, B, Ha, ...

Re: Using FF Focus in sequence

Thanks Iver, I totally forgotten about that feature. If I do that, then I only need to inject the two lines below. I will try this out next time I’m in the observatory. . . . Sequence("H", 4, 240, 1, 99999) Sequence("O", 4, 240, 1, 99999) Focuser.GotoRelative(-313) Sequence("S", 4, 240, 1, 99999) Fo...

Re: Using FF Focus in sequence

Hi Iver, So you mean inserting a "dummy" line, with a short exposure, simply to move the focuser, and after that, the S-II with FF AF? I guess that would be a good solution. It would be even better, if yet another column was added, for a pre FF AF focuser relative offset move. Something like this: h...

Using FF Focus in sequence

I am extremely happy with the new Full Frame Focus feature and have been using it with great success. I have been running several sessions with L, R, G, B, O-III and Ha with great success, where Astroart has been FF autofocusing automatically for each filter. However, I recently added a S-II filter ...

Re: Stars coloring

"Code says more than a 1000 words" - or how does the saying go ;-) I have put together some C# code, I hope You can read it. I will send you a link to the project, source code and all. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kynm8o1w3wqbex9/StarColorExample1.jpg?raw=1 https://www.dropbox.com/s/28kbykergaqi3ne/Sta...

Re: Stars coloring

Thanks for the prompt reply Fabio.
Well - yes, that’s actually how I do now. But it is difficult to find an adjustment, that fits well for more than one star. Also, for example with M13, you quickly wear up the mouse button ;-)
