Supplying "roi" param in "guide" method to PHD2?


I posted a feature request on the PHD2 github pages about being able to define an ROI for automatic guidestar selection (eg to make sure the guidestar isn’t too far from the imaging field) - it turns out there is a way of doing this via the server API already using the “roi” param for the “guide” method. See:

Is there a way of specifying this roi parameter to pass to PHD within SGP?



Specifying ROI is not currently supported. Moving to feature requests.

Hi Ken,

I second the request for this feature. It would be very useful for tracking comets where the guide star moves out of the FOV. It has happened to me several times.
