Re: Pause PHD2 when FF AF?

Any news on pausing PHD2 when doing an auto focus in a sequence? PHD2 still "freakes out" when I auto focus. I am using an off axis guider. I know I can script my way out of it, but it would be very convenient to have a checkbox in the sequencer: Pause PHD2 when AF. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kk6csgk...

Re: Placing a mark at an exact coordinate

Hello, no, but after the annotation is moved with the mouse, it can be moved precisely with the keyboard with CTRL + arrows. Actually if the point is removed and it's replaced with a star selection, then snapping is possible with the experimental shortcut SHIFT + S (with the annotation active, and ...

If I zoom an extremely ammount in, such that pixels in the image is eg 20x20 pixels on the screen, I can identify the pixel that closest match the coordinate by fiddeling the cursor arround. But this is cumbersome, if you need ...

Is there an automatic way to coregister multiple images (different sources)? I have my own set of calibrated images and want to stack those with a set of calibrated images from a friend of mine. We have different setups with different pixelscale and image dimensions. Since there's hundreths of image...

Saving calibrated lights for multisession

I am working on a project, that will last for months. So I will for certain gather lights that will require different sets of calibration frames, because I may shift the camera, or new dust donoughts may show up. Which will all require new flats. To be able to stack sets of lights that is ascociated...

Setteling time when using Center

Is it possible to add a mount settling time to be used for the "Center" function? I am trying to use it from the GUI, but mostly it fails, since it re-slews and immediately takes the next exposure, resulting in elongated stars, due to some backlash on my axes, which again makes the platesolve fail. ...
