Menu can be navigated using UP / DOWN buttons
Move: RIGHT to select and manually move camera, T_RIGHT to revert to last target's theta
Set Target: RIGHT to set a target, LEFT to reset all targets
Set C Zero: RIGHT to set current C position as zero (Camera facing straight back at rotator)
Total Time: LEFT / RIGHT / T_LEFT / T_RIGHT to increase / decrease total timelapse time
If Total Time = 0, photos will be taken at max speed. The minimum total time (if NOT 0) is calculated by the controller. A shorter amount of time cannot be selected. This is done to guarantee that the photos are equichronilogical (same time between photos).
Number Shots: LEFT / RIGHT / T_LEFT / T_RIGHT to increase / decrease number of photos in timelapse
Shutter Time: LEFT / RIGHT / T_LEFT / T_RIGHT to increase / decrease shutter open time
Start IR: RIGHT to set current position as distance to subject and ending theta
NEXT: LEFT / RIGHT to move camera about subject, T_RIGHT to set as start position and start timelapse
Start EnE: RIGHT to move to first target position and begin timelapse, moving straight to second target position
Settings: RIGHT to enter Settings submenu
T_LEFT: Go back to main menu
T_RIGHT: Toggle primary / secondary rotation
LEFT / RIGHT: Rotate primary or secondary rotator
UP / DOWN: Extend or retract boom
If the subject position is set, an asterisk will appear on the Moving screen when a complete rotation cannot be completed.
A, C: Steps per Rad. Adjust using LEFT / RIGHT.
B: Steps per MM. Adjust using LEFT / RIGHT.
bMin, bMax: Boom extension limits. Adjust using LEFT / RIGHT / T_LEFT / T_RIGHT.
A Manual Calibrate: Make exactly one half turn to set the A coefficient. LEFT / RIGHT to move A, T_RIGHT to set as one half turn.
Camera Side: RIGHT to reverse secondary rotator direction polarity.
Test Shutter: RIGHT to activate shutter (for testing connection).
Back: RIGHT to save settings and return to main menu.
When connected to a PC, the recent history can be printed by entering 'h/'.
A dummy IR program can be set by entering 's/'.
The A, B, and C coefficients can be set by the 'aXXX/', 'bXXX/', and 'cXXX/' commands.
