Yes I've used astroimagej Its pretty good. Now I use astropy photutils and I think its better....
Sorry for any confusion, I dont want kstars or indi to become a photometry tool.... I would just like airmass added as a fits header to the images. Its an environmental property just like, SQM which is currently added as a header. This property could have many uses to other fields too, not just photometry.

This would be great to have in the header for people doing photometry.

Derek created a new topic ' WriteParkData() destroying ParkData.xml (custom driver)' in the forum. 1 month ago

This is not a problem in INDI, rather a problem in my roof driver that I cant seem to find.
Basically when I park/unpark my roof driver I end up with a ParkData.xml like this

<parkdata>
    <device name="">
        <parkstatus>
false
        </parkstatus>
    </device>
</parkdata>
This is a problem because I loose the telescope park status. I'm working around by manually copying a good ParkData.xml after I open the roof but this is not great....

After trying to find what is happening I think it is something to do with the getDeviceName() returning null for my roof driver for some reason.
I'm sure its something I'm missing in my driver's code or build config but I cant seem to find what it could be.

Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks,
Derek

Maybe this may be of interest to some people... I find it useful to keep an eye on whats happening.
Its a very basic script to post messages to a slack channel from events in the EKOS log files as they happen.

Thanks Jasem I understand it now. 'RW Aur' was cancelled because of my moon constraint. I thought it should be ok as it would have been higher later in the night.
The 'xxx Her' targets were cancelled because they were too low, My alt constraint is 40deg

Not sure if this is any use, but you could use a Dropbox dir and save the data on-site there. Then have this would sync to your other devices that have dropbox installed and not block any other operations.
