Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

I found the issue on Windows: I was using an obsolete Qt signal from Qt3, which was still working in Qt4.5, and is still working on Qt4.11 but on linux only :/ I switched to the correct signal, and all works fine under Windows, now!

Stay tuned.

Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

Without modifying Papywizard, you need to call an external process (using GenericTethered plugin) to trigger using CTS/DTR (or any other serial line you want). The problem is you can't do that on the same serial line that is already in use by other plugins (yaw/pitch)... If you go that way, which is...

Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

Yes, Papywizard can run on RPi. You just have to install a few libs (Pyqt, pybluez, pyserial...), clone the git repo, and install (see online documentation). If you go that way, I can write a plugin to use GPIO to trigger the camera. It is possible to run Papywizard on Windows without generating a e...

Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

Yes, it is possible and very easy to write a new shutter plugin, doing that. I can do it, but I don't have the toolchain anymore to generate the .exe for Windows...

However, if you run Papywizard under a linux machine, no problem.

Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

Ok, I just checked: you need to give full path to python.exe as 'trigger command', like: C:\Python27\python.exe (depending what version and where you installed python), and path to your script as p0 param, like: C:\Python27\test\test.py (again, depending where you put you script). About com port, ju...

Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

You don't need to build an exe yourself; you can use a python script. I will dig to find the correct way to call it from the plugin. It won't be possible to open the same com port from another program. Even from Papywizard, it is not possible to open it twice... This would require to share the objec...

Re: Make papywizard trigger camera Skywatcher SynScan AZ GO

In fact, you have to use both. Your script will do the triggering, and the the GenericThetered plugin will call your script. Just replace the default program (gphoto2) by yours. I think you will have to give the complete path to your script. But I'm not sure how Windows handles execution of scripts....

Papywizard web site

Hi! The main Papywizard site is often down, and I apologize for that. I can't find the issue. Strange thing is I have other projects using the same app/config (Trac), which work fine... We are going to upgrade our machine in a few weeks, and upgrade the system too (to latest debian), so it may fix t...

Site web de Papywizard

Hello, Le site web de Papywizard est souvent innaccessible, et je m'en excuse. Je n'arrive pas à trouve le problème ; le plus étrange c'est que j'ai d'autres sites utilisant la même appli et la même config (Trac) qui fonctionne très bien... On va prochainement upgrader notre serveur et l'OS (vers la...

Re: Thethered bracketing with EOS Utility and Papywizard

There is no Papywizard plugin for MagicLantern, unless the generic tethered works. EOS Utility is also Free, and is supported.

Hi! That's a long time I didn't work on Papywizard, and I only used EOS Utility to implement the plugin. So, it is difficilt to help... But... Papywizard excepts that the shutter plugin is blocking until the the shutter cycle is over. I don't remember how does EOS Utility script work; did your try t...

Re: PanoHero panoramic head for GoPro

Thanks!

BTW, do you know the exact position of the NPP? It looks like your rotations cross behind the lens... Am I right?

Re: Sphère complète avec une GoPro

I don't sell anything myself, right. But you are free to print and sell parts, if you want (the license allows it).

This is not a final version, even if it works; the vertical arm masks a part of the fov, especially if used in landscape mode; I have to fix that. Also, I'm not sure the NPP is correct.

As soon as it is done, I'll give a try to Papywizard.
