Re: Astroart 8

And the stacking is extremely fast.

Re: Script commands for domes

From the help: Dome functions Dome.Connect Dome.Disconnect Dome.Connected These functions are intended for connection with the ASCOM hubs, for example "POTH" or "DeviceHub", where the movement of the dome is controlled by ASCOM. Your scripts will just open or close the window, or park the dome. Exam...

Re: Feature request: scale bar on images

Hi Bernd - I would also like to have this available somehow. Perhaps as an extra annotation type, that You can place anywhere in the image, and that automatically add/remove tickmarks depending on it's size.

Doing it every 6'th image, only 4% observation time is lost for focusing. I always let Astroart save focus pos an...
