Ability to Capture Multiple Frame Mosaics


Raaj

Question

Hi Guylain,

 

Would be super cool to have the ability to set an area of the sky, defined as X frames to the right (or left, up or down) from the central target and have that automatically captured, allowing multiple frames to be stitched together in post for larger composites.

 

Thanks!

There are Apps which have such Features.  And there are ways to pursue Mosaics without any specific Mosaic Feature.

 

The problem is that an App that Manages Mosaics needs to have substantially more sophisticated Mount Control Features than is in the Current Feature Set and the described Scope and Near-term Future of BackyardEOS:

Control of the Mount's Slewing in terms of Celestial Coordinates

Knowledge of the Mount's Slewing Performance and Control Resolution and Orientation

Knowledge of the Mount's current Celestial Coordinates

Knowledge of the Imaging Rig's FOV and Resolution

Integration of Celestial Coordinates into the Image Capture Plan

Knowledge of the Target's Apparent Size

 

Staying with BYE/BYN as the Image Capture Program, probably the best hope for a Mosaic Imaging Control App would be AstroTortilla (for which Dev Effort seems to have stalled out as of 2014-05-31) or TheSkyX (for which Guylain recently coordinated use of the BYE API to allow BYE as TheSkyX's DSLR Camera Control App).
