Luci is set up and takes image, after the first image the python shows an error.

Found the error.

The expected image size is 256,256.

The exp time only accept integers.

Once the luci frames were set to 256 256 the scrpts worked.

Runs two focus run for N30 camera.
  • Setup luci filter clear/H.
  • Exptime 3 seconds, ndit=5
  • subwindow 256,256
Focus script for DX found focus qt 55.9 the value that we have for with and without ncpa.



revert SW version for night time.

Check power on

ocam not live.
  • power cycle bcu2k and set 1x1 cropped
  • ocam ok
power off
