DIMM Release Notes, Version 2.5

Version 2.5 was released 29-November-2012

  • dump the mount configuration data on mount connection and on-demand via the GUI
  • set the max speed percentage to 50% (from 90% of max) and acceleration to 250 (from 400); hardcoded in the driver
  • exception handling and state handling corrected in focuser
  • enable guiding when starting a measurement, by default
  • set offset based on how far the operator hand-paddles before they find the star - set when DIMM finds it and centers; GUI option to zero out the offset
  • added command line program to disconnect mount - run as cron job in the morning
  • fixed bug with slew speed adjustment based on temperature
  • changed setting of flags in camera thread to not be tied to the monitor mutex - hopefully, this fixes the camera thread getting stuck trying to enable/disable measuring

Client GUI
  • GUI option added to log the mount settings
  • don't allow move in/move out on focuser
  • moved Guiding button on the GUI to be an overall setting like Measuring, out of the mount settings
  • GUI option to zero out the new guiding offset
