About Astrojohn

I am a science geek! Interests Astronomy, Skiing, Philosophy, basically any form of technology including writing automation software for my observatory. I will also share this with others using the same EQMOD/Astroart tool set.

You will need to know the format of files in your TEMP files

I have included a sample TEMP file for the ObsMGr10. This gives you the file naming conventions I have used for Master Darks and Flats:
MD30B1 for example is a 30 sec master dark binned 1X1
For the flats the names are more obvious except that after L,R,G,B I have used filter slot numbers. eg I have a Johnson V filter in slot 6.

Hope you can make sense of this.

Clearly there is a lot of system setup to do before you have full automation, but once done it makes life very easy to get say 100 variable star measurements for a time series curve. All automated and checked for accuracy and noise level.

Hope this helps.
