I was imaging last week and started a run that lasted 90 minutes. During that time somebody bumped my mount and I didn’t know about it. Would it be possible to do a quick analysis that compares the image just taken to the previous image to determine if the star fields have shifted by ‘n’ pixels and if so abort the run and issue an audible alarm? This would be an optional setting for the user. I understand that this would be difficult to code and be problematic for wide-field imaging.
Another way would be to work with the Open PhD Guide developers and have them provide an alarm status when PhD loses ‘lock’ on the guide star or the guide star starts to run-away. This alarm signal would then instruct BYE to ‘abort’ the run and issue an audible alarm to the user. This would require coding coordination between the Open PhD developers and O’Telescope. This assumes that users will be using an auto-guider.
