Is environment data written to fits headers?


#1

if one were to procure a bluestick, would the environment data reported by the device be written into fits headers of captured images?


#2

I don’t think we write stuff like humidity, but if you choose to override the focus controller’s temperature with the environment device’s temperature, that will be written to the headers. I think there is a request / ticket somewhere to get the rest of that data into the FITS header as well.


#3

OK thanks. i’ll at least do that then.


#4

I use a stickstation and just checked…yes, the info is there in the header.


#5

Good thing somebody knows what’s going on around here…


#6

haha! thanks Kinch, that’s exactly what i was looking for.
