  1. Hi everyone, I'm pleased to share a good news with you. Indeed, thanks to Partha Bagchi (https://www.partha.com/) we are now able to provide you an .app file for OS X users. This is a good improvement because no Homebrew or Xcode are needed anymore. Also !! the app is 10% faster for stacking. You can download the app here. Enjoy !!
  2. After searching several days I have found a way of controlling my mount using OSX software - would just like to say great effort and a big thank you from the developer of this, works perfectly with my EQMOD sub lead. Just downloading the latest drivers for my Canon 450d and everything seems to work. Would just like to ask are Atik CCD's supported by anyone, heard of a great initiative called the AOSX which encourages Astro software to be developed for the macs. Long may it continue and great effort by people involved.
  3. Hello all, I was able to get out on a gusty night and finally try out the latest edition of Lodestar Live, v 12 (thanks again Paul!). First, v12 solves the auto-filename issue I was having in v 11; on Mavericks, I'm again getting automatic generation of filenames based on target name and date, which is great! I did however run across a couple of new & strange occurrences, and thought I'd check to see if any other Mac OS X users of LL have experienced anything like it. I did my usual dark frames prior to starting viewing, and then was using LL as per usual. I had turned on the separate output window at first (with all info displayed in it) and placed it in a separate desktop; I also used LL with the secondary window disabled. The two main issues I encountered: 1) LL locked up on me (at first last night, and then I was able to recreate it today during the day). With dark frames taken, and with the secondary output window placed on another desktop so I could easily swipe between them, I ended viewing an object, and then went to the Focus, Alignment and Framing window to prepare to look for my next target when I got the "spinning beach ball"... everything slowed way down, including LL response to clicks, etc., and the Finder reported LL as "not responding". After a few minutes of fruitless clicking, moving the secondary window back to the same desktop as the primary, and trying to disable secondary output, I finally had to force quit LL to fix the issue. I was able to recreate this scenario today in testing, though I waited longer, and it appeared that LL did eventually "unfreeze" this time, but there was about 10 minutes of no response. I'm not sure exactly what triggered this, though, since I had viewed objects fine for some period using similar steps last night before hitting this issue. 2) After viewing several objects, and adjusting colour balance with no problem on the histogram, I was suddenly presented with a histogram that had the blue and green peaks showing up normally, but the red peak was a "spike". Otherwise, things worked fine, but it made it impossible to white balance the images. I tried all kinds of changes to settings, unplugging the camera, etc. but the problem was only solved by quitting and restarting LL (at which point everything went back to normal, and remained that way for the remaining few hours I was observing.) Images showing the appearance of the object in the affected/normal state below (I didn't get a shot of the window/histogram - sorry!) Thanks in advance, Greg A
