Many thanks to the SGP team for providing us with a program that will help keep this old retired astro-observer warm on chilly winter nights. (and chilly summer nights for that matter especially - here in the UK). Now I can truly remotely operate my telescope, mount etc. from within my warm observatory ‘control room’ (go on then - the spare bedroom!) Keep up the good work guys.
I notice that the latest release of the ASCOM Platform (i.e. version 6.1) provides some interesting new interface features. Could it be possible for SGP to provide an interface to control automatic flat acquisition via an ASCOM ‘switch’ feature from within SGP’s Flat Box facility?
I am presently working on a servo motor controlled light panel project (using an Arduino Uno board) which is driven via a third party ASCOM compliant interface. At present I can control the light panel via the computer using ASCOM Autoflat software, but have to stop the imaging sequence to ‘manually’ operate the light panel.
It would be great if it was possible to control it automatically from within SGP’s Flat Box facility via an ASCOM Chooser option.
Thanks in anticipation,
