  1. I have never used an automated sequence for this because I always need to tweak the focus for the blue channel at least. However, are you using FC to autoguide on the planet? If not, I would definitely get this working as it makes planetary imaging a much more relaxing experience. Well it does with my mount that likes to wonder about of its own accord. Cheers, Chris
  2. If you are planning a career in software engineering, or even a similar field, then having an open source project such as this under your belt actually makes you very employable. The code itself showcases your skills and the fact that you have done it shows that you have drive. Cheers, Chris
  3. In my experience you do not just write software and it is "done"! You either continuing maintaining it forever or it will be considered "no longer maintained" and it will die a natural death... Cheers, Chris
  4. Interesting. I wonder how it would work with the ISS...
  5. Were you sorting a lot of frames in quality order using PIPP? If your new machine has more memory (and a 64-bit OS) then PIPP will take advantage of this rather than writing frames to the hard drive during processing. Also PIPP will naturally run much faster with an SSD that an old HDD as planetary naturally processing involves a lot of hard drive activity. I believe that Registax is only a 32-bit program so will probably not be able to take advantage of any extra memory. However, I would have expected to be a bit faster on the new machine. Cheers, Chris
  6. That is a great idea, I shall do the same for SER Player. This should help Vincent who has the misfortune of maintaining both oacapture and SER Player on Arch Linux! Chris
  7. Good news, oacapture v1.4.0 is now working correctly in Arch Linux. Cheers, Chris
  8. That is working for me, thanks. I have added a comment to oacapture's AUR package page: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/oacapture/ Hopefully, this should be enough to alert the maintainer of the files you created. Cheers, Chris
  9. The way forward: $ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/oacapture.git$ cd oacapture Update PKGBUILD to get and build the latest version of oacapture.$ makepkg -si When you have a working PKGBUILD file, send it to your maintainer. Chris
  10. It looks like they have fixed their problems now, the installer is working again for me. Chris
  11. Yes, it does look like they are having problems. I just tried to install Antergos in a new VM using the ISO that worked fine yesterday morning and I got the same error message as you. I assume they will get it fixed shortly. Chris
  12. When you have Antergos installed, the following at the command line will show the problem: $ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/oacapture.git $ cd oacapture $ makepkg -si The file 'PKGBUILD' contains all that is required to build the application. Cheers, Chris
  13. I am using Antergos rather than plain Arch, far simpler to install. If you can get it to build on Arch then producing a package is pretty simple as all it does is download the source code and build it. Chris
  14. Hi James, Good work! Is there any chance of getting the Arch Linux AUR updated to the latest version? It currently looks to be stuck at a broken version of v1.0.0. Cheers, Chris
  15. Also, on Windows SER Player integrates with the file explorer so that SER file thumbnails show the first frame of the SER file instead of an icon.
