0.6.1 2016-09-28

  • Histogram: allow to freely resize widget
  • Histogram: replaced "enable" checkbox with toggle logarithmic mode
  • Histogram: better resolution for plot image

0.6.0 2016-09-27

  • Improved colour camera support: display and save both bayer and debayered image, along with RGB formats
  • Optional debayer filter for display configurable in the main settings
  • Allow to choose recording duration based on frames number or seconds
  • Removed deprecated edge detection algorithm, using only OpenCV provided canny and sobel. This allows compilation in other platforms (for instance, arm)
  • ASI: Updated ASI SDK to v0.3.920, with great speed improvements for USB3 cameras, and fixing long exposures bug
  • QHY: use static libraries instead of installing dynamic libraries to the system
  • Improved threading for cameras: a lot of infrastructure refactoring to improve both performances and stability
  • Temperature polling in statusbar
  • Histogram: allow to toggle on/off and to configure interval to reduce CPU usage
  • Histogram: simplified draw to remove dependencies and solve plotting bugs
  • Lots of more configurable options
  • More reliable frame creation timestamp
  • Window size is now saved and restored during sessions
  • Notify user of controls accepted/rejected from camera, also disable "apply" button when no controls have pending changes
  • Fixes to QHY driver
  • Fixes to V4L2 driver

Working support for 8bit imaging grayscale QHY cameras. Tested with my QHY5L-IIm at 30fps on maximum resolution.
Everything else is quite experimental and/or not working.

Using QHY driver to ensure best support and maximum performances.

Source installation:
clone the repository, checkout also the qhyccd submodule (git submodule init && git submodule update) and build it following README .

Binary installation:
Download the atttached archive.
Extract it to the root directory with the following command:
sudo tar xzvf PlanetaryImager-0.1.tar.gz -C /

Launch the application with the following command:
planetary_imager_launcher
