Is there a way to set the Find stars parameters within the script? For example, something like this:

Stars.Find.SNR = 10.0
Stars.Find.ADU = 200
Stars.Find.FWHM = 3.5

Here is what I tried:
Manually start AA
Load an Image
Click Tools|Find stars
Change S/N to 10
Test .. get 50 stars found
Close AA

Run my external program
It starts AA
It loads the same image
Call Stars.Find
returns 121 stars
I then manually check the Find stars settings and they have been reverted back to a default set.

Is there any way to preset these parameters or set them within the script?

no, but after the stars have been collected, it's possible to select only those needed:

Code: Select all

for i = 1 to Image.Stars.Count
  adu = Image.Stars.ADU(i)
  fwx = Image.Stars.FwhmX(i)
  if fwx < 5.0 then print adu, fwx
next i
The stars will be also returned ordered, by ADU (so by S/N)
