I agree that it is not the most important. But AFAIK the most valuable what an average amateur can produce and "scientific". Let me know if you have any better other ideas. I started to do my telescope project to do something scientific. :)

To my understanding, photometry of variable stars is still a way to produce some scientific data. That is why I started to build a robot telescope setup for my balcony a few month ago.

Csaba Kertesz created a new topic ' Viewing/converting FITS files from QHY camera' in the forum. 6 days ago

Hi,

I look forward for sorting QHY camera images after a session is finished. The same thing can be done with cr2 images from my Canon DSLR with gwenview, but I have problem with the QHY images. Although I can open a single QHY image with "kstars picture.fits", but all other image viewers/editors/converters do not apply the demosaic process on these images.

I look forward for suggestions:

1. Linux batch conversion method how I could generate reasonable debayered tiff or jpeg files for previewing purposes.
or
2. Where can I implement inside Indi to save a preview JPEG/TIFF or debayered version along with the native FITS.

Csaba Kertesz created a new topic ' Using two cameras at the same time?' in the forum. 6 days ago

If I understood correctly, it is not possible to run an imaging session with two cameras at the same time, right? (The Sequence Queue on the CCD tab can't run two tasks parallel.)

It is shipped with Indi and available in the PPA version and the Raspbian tar file as well.

I wrote some more information on the wiki page how it works:

This is a simple announcement post to find with Google. :)

I worked on the SkyWatcherMountAPI telescope driver these weeks to make it compatible with Skywatcher Virtuoso mounts. So far so good, the driver seems to be stable and works without any problems.

Feel free to use it.

Planned features:
- Support for wedge
- Autoguiding support
