Script new functions

Post by Emilio » 17 Aug 2019, 08:10

Hi Fabio,
I have 2 requests for script functions:
1) apply filters (HI pass, LOW pass, etc.) to the current image using a script command
2) set plate solve parameters (at least Horizontal field) via script command
Thanks
Emilio

Hi Emilio, you can already do this with a script!
For High and Low pass use "Image.Macro(n)"
You need to set up the macro parameters.

Plate solve parameters from the Image Script functions.

"Image.FindCoordinates (ra,de,stars,[side])"

Finds the center plate via plate solving. It's possible to set the side of the search zone in degrees, default is 2°x2°.

Thanks Iver,
I'm using a macro call already, but in such a way a script is not portable and depends on the AA environment settings.
As for Plate Solve there is a misunderstanding. I was mentioning the "Horizontal field (arcminutes)" to be set inside the Find coordinates window and related to telescope/ccd FOV. I use a script for a full automated imaging session in which is possible to select and change different telescope/CCD settings having different FOV. That's why it will be great to set the "Horizontal field (arcminutes)" with a script command avoiding to exit the script in order to change the Horizontal field and then re-enter the script going on in the imaging process.

Hi Emilio,
OK, the setting of the horizontal field will be added to Service Pack 2. If you need a prerelease please contact me by PM or email.
Greetings, Fabio.
