Here are some request that i believe would benefit this software.
I use an Atik 383L+ and when i end my imaging i want the warm up procedure to warm the camera until it hits 0% power consumption and then turn off (i come from maxim DL and it is a very useful feature). Right now the only way to warm up the camera is by knowing the ambient temperature of my imaging site by using a USB thermometer and warming up my camera to 3-5 below ambient. This method can cause errors especially for those that don’t use external thermometer to measure ambient temperature and warm up their cameras above ambient temperature.
When using external temperature/humidity sensors add the ability of the software to log these reading into a txt file for future reference and if possible make it to calculate the average of temperature/humidity samples of the session.
When it comes to meridian flip it would be good to add an option for the meridian flip to take place after x minutes past the meridian or after a frame is finished when the meridian flip is passed.
Eg. I image my target and finish a frame (my mount is near the meridian), when it comes to start the next frame i get a message that the meridian flip will take place let’s in 5 minutes and i image 10 or 15 subs. So i have to either wait for the meridian flip or do it myself. There is an option to do the meridian flip at x degrees past the meridian but it is rather hard to follow since imaging takes place with time rather than degrees. Here is my proposal, i would like to start my frame, the software warns me that the mount will pass the meridian while imaging and give me the option to either wait for the meridian if i am very close to it, eg 3 minutes, do a meridian flip now, again if i am near the meridian as before along with a warning to take care of my equipment hitting the mount or start the frame and perform a meridian flip after it’s finished.
