Just a thread to ask what feature folks would most like to see in the future for Guylain to ponder, what feature you would most like to have.
For me its centre a picture where I'd like (without using AstroTortilla or other 3rd party products). I would love to have BYE (connected to the ASCOM scope control) snap a shot - then for me to be able to select any star and click another point of the screen and be able to say - move this picture so this star appears at a user selected point on the screen. So say if I clicked on M20 and its wasn't framed well, select a star and click some place on the screen and command BYE to shift the scope until the star appears close enough to the point I selected (say within a maximum of 5 moves - take a new shot and see if the star is in the correct position. If BYE knew the RA DEC directions on the screen and image scale - it could hopefully calculate to move a star from (X, Y) to a new coordinate (A, B ) it would have to slew a certain distance in RA and DEC - issue that movement and use fuzzy logic with a set number of attempts to get the scope to the desired point.
I have tried this with Astro Tortilla - but it simply can't issue a sync to the ASCOM Vixen driver when the Sky6 PE is controlling the mount... (a Vendor issue they barely accept let alone would consider fixing)!
Desire two would be focus aid assistance - click on any bright star and have an automated imaging routine where BYE tries to find best focus for said star (rather the stop imaging - add Bhatinov masks - and manually adjust focus for 2 - 10 minutes) - then go back to imaging - and having to do this several times a night. I would like a dummies option to simple say - Check for best focus - and know after a minute or two it had found it again!
I would love to be able to insert into my say 2-6 hour imaging sequence a command that said say every 30 minutes - 2 hours - automatically check for best focus!
What would other folk most desire?
