I recently built a Arduino flat panel controller which uses the Alnitak Flip Flat protocol. The arduino appears to work fine. I can adjust the brightness of the panel from within SGP.
The problem comes when I actually try to take flats in a sequence. With the flat panel connected I can take a frame and focus image and the flat comes out fine. However, when I try to take a flat in a running sequence it appears as though the camera shutter will not open. I get what looks like a BIAS instead.
I’m new to automated flats and chances are I just don’t understand something. Anyone help me out?
