is there any way to force the jpg preview when scope is centering during a sequence?
I’m shooting with a Canon Camera and from the control panel (Plate Solve tab) I can choose the ISO and the Exposure but there’s no way to make it use the jpg preview.
The problem is in plate solving (ANSVR): when taking a single shot from the “frame and focus” panel, and JPG preview is enabled, I can manually start plate solving on the resulting image and it will plate solve correctly in 15 seconds. If I disable the jpg preview it won’t solve unless exposition time is very long (at least 200seconds - i’m testing plate solving with an H alpha filter, it’s kinda of an experiment). The same happen during a sequence, so I guess that the scope centering doesn’t use a jpg preview.
If SPG could plate solve on the resulting jpg image during the automatic scope centering, instead of using the raw image, plate solving would succeed even with short exposures. Can this be accomplished?
I also have an off topic question. Is there any way to make auto focus run only on focus target, when set? I set the focus target on Deneb and I have autofocus enabled in my sequence each 60 minutes. I was expecting that my scope slew to Deneb, try focusing on that star, then slew back to the target position and keep shooting. That didn’t happen, and it tried focusing on the target position. Am I missing something?
