A small summary of this software created for you:

VideosSky is a freeware for the control of the SSAG Orion, Qhy5, Atik Artemis, DMK, Apogee, Basler cameras, to capture images or video sequences. Originally, its aim was to capture video sequences for SSAG Orion cameras, something that was impossible before the creation of my software.

With time, I have added my own cameras, that is to say ATIKs.
Currently, the whole range of ATIK cameras is perfectly controlled. The monitoring of the cooling system is fully automatized. At VidéoSky startup, cooling begins (after you have adjusted the temperature, of course). Then, you have a real time information on the temperature. When you leave VidéoSky, the "Warm Up" phase begins. This phase is mandatory but often ignored. VidéosSky signals by a message that this phase is running and stops after.

The DMK cameras have been added for the adaptive imaging plugin. And now for the homemade Tip-Tilt system, for Thierry Legault's EM400
mount that is used for the tracking of the Space Station and also for the ATLAS EQG mount equipped with the
PLUG and PLAY module, modifying the firmware of the mount for the same performance as the EM400 on ISS tracking, and of
course high speed recording in 8, 10 and 12-bit in FITS, SER and YGB formats. A converter included transforms the
YGB and SER files into FITS files for processing with Registax or Prism for example.

A small plus: a small "SDK" that allows to start the software by command line, with a small help included. This allows you to make automatic capture files.

 

This new release contains:

- Full English version available during installation.
- French and English versions.
- New generation high speed recorder for DKM 21, 31 and 41 for SER files at 60 fps.
- Recording in SER, FITS and YGB (homemade format) in 8, 10 and 12-bit for DMK Gige cameras, including a converter for all these formats.
