BatchPreprocessing - store avg ccd themp in masters
« on: 2017 October 01 17:24:20 »
Hi.

I'm near to javascript programming. And like PixInsight very much!
So... i need one minor feature. I want to add CCD-TEMP fits / xisf header into master bias & dark. Would calculate it just as avg from integrated sources. At modern ccd / cmos camera it means almost same value in avg as in any single.

I would prepare patch in few days and ask to deploy it into next releases. Is it possible?

Thanks.

P.S. Perhaps ImageIntegration must do it?

Dear PixInsight,

And it would be very convinient if the whole BatchPreProcessing script can support autoselecting appropriate BIAS/DARKs not only by binning and exposure time, but also by temperature.

Because if you image an object for a month or even more you inevitably will get lights captured in quite wide interval of camera cooler temperatures (e.g. at -20, -25, -30 and -35C) and this gives a very wide interval of dark currents (doubles per every 6 grad) and need to use different darks for different lights.

Moscow, can you also upgrade the whole script to support this?

Best regards,
Boris

Yup Boris, its possible. But it major upgrade and I could do it later.
And sure, want to include my diffs into new pix updates / version. It is main question for me at moment.
