Re: Automatic Observing: Custom Crop imaging

Dear,

Thank you. But there it is only Full frame, 1/2 frame, and 1/4 frame. But nothing custom? For instance: i have X1: 587, Y1: 532, X2:2770, Y2: 2003

Automatic Observing: Custom Crop imaging

Dear,

PRISM V10.4.0.516

When imaging directly within the camera window: i can select a custom imaging area with X1 X2 Y1 Y2. using Set window mode
In automatic observation mode, i don't see this. Is this possible to be implanted? Or is this already there, and i'm just blind :)

Re: Cloud sensor, Obs. Conditions

Dear All,

Is there an update on this problem?

For now as it seem in V10.3.65.505 the Cloud sensor data is grabbed as soon as you connect to the hardware, but after that , it does not reload anymore.
Unless you disable hardware, and then enable again.

Flatdarks

Dear,

Is there a way to substract a master flatdark from single flats images? Or is the masterflat image been build with a reject from a master flatdark and so Prism does take care of this?
When for instance having 5 second flats, a master flatdark is sufficient to use.

Thank you.

Dear,µ

I think both cases. It's just when you close the settings windows, and you try to connect it gives the error.
I indeed think that there is no behind action on that tab. I think i can even enter 5000, but still nothing will happen, or an error that this could not be.
