General / New installation question
« on: 2019 October 01 14:09:03 »
Question is that by uninstalling the previous version, which I believe is necessary every time you install a new package (?), I will lose all of the scripts and manual additions (e.g. starnet etc) that I have added since the last version and will then have to locate and reinstall all of that? Is there any way to avoid that?
Thanks

General / Error loading multichannel scripts
« on: 2019 March 30 16:29:29 »
Must be something basic I am missing. Tried opening any of the multichannel scripts and I get these file not found errors. Scripts have been placed in the usual script folder and are listed properly in the multichannel synthesis drop down
Thanks

General / Narrowband scripts in 1.8.06?
« on: 2019 February 21 17:55:15 »
I only see the NBRGB combination script under utilities in the current PI version. What happened to HA RVB and the SHO scripts?
Thanks

General / Image statistics process
« on: 2019 February 02 06:20:20 »
I'm using the image statistics process to measure percent saturation of a spectrum by looking at maximum ADU for the image (see attached). This is a raw image, no dark subtraction. Since there is no calibration at all, is this going to be an inaccurate measure if there are hot pixels present? Or is this process not really affected by hot pixels?
Thanks

General / Re: "Risky Temporary Folder" message
« on: 2019 January 26 05:27:21 »
Ok so I did change the directory as recommended by going to preferences> directories and network, removing the temp folder from the list, creating the new directory path, then apply global and I don't get the warning any more when I open PI. However after changing it when I go back to the directories and network process the temp folder is still the only folder listed there? The new correct folder only appears if I click on "load current page settings". What is happening there?

General / "Risky Temporary Folder" message
« on: 2019 January 25 05:28:52 »
I just installed the new 1.8.6 version and get this message on opening the program which I have not seen before. No idea if I need to do anything about it or not.
Thanks

Ok seems to working after a clean reinstall. Blue icon is restored. I'm thinking I did something when I initially installed it on this computer as it was a "new instance" of the program . Anyway so far it's fine.

I'm getting exactly the same error. Running Win 7. Disc is over 60% free. I can fix by restarting the computer once or twice. No blue cube icon either. It's a generic notebook

General / Re: Median eccentricity

Aha! I guess I would have seen it under documentation in the subframe selector script but I only looked at the FWHM eccentricity script which does not have any attached documentation. Thanks!

General / Median eccentricity
« on: 2018 April 01 08:40:52 »
Just a general question on what values, in the image analysis scripts that measure this, mean more "roundness". I'm pretty sure that lower values e.g. 0.3-0.5 are "better" but just trying to understand the concept better.
Thanks

Thank you! That script is great! Just checked off 1 pixel on the filter slide and that totally worked.

General / FWHMeccentricity script question
« on: 2018 February 10 07:24:11 »
Can this script confuse hot pixels with stars in uncalibrated images? Is it better to dark subtract first before measuring? I noticed an unusually low number for average FWHM and when I checked individual stars with the PSF process it was much different (way higher number). Is there another process you can use to check individual stars FWHM?
Thanks

Thanks Alex! That did the trick. That information should have been included with the release just in case any of the developers read this thread  :smiley:

I'm running Win7 and cannot find it under the scripts dropdown in any of the subcategories. Where is it located or how is it pulled up?
Thanks
