OSX ATIK OpenPHD2 Support
« on: January 23, 2015, 04:19:56 pm »
I've spent a little bit of time sorting out OpenPHD... (not an easy task) to run on 64bit 10.10.1 Macs..

However here is the development shot of an ATIK Titan running on OpenPHD. There's a little more I need todo in terms of bug fixes but it's getting there.. this is using the new portable OS X/Linus C++ drivers that power TheSkyX Plugin.

All sorted - there were a few hidden PHD variables that needed setting..

Here's my 383L - it's stretched noise pattern is recognisable:

I've released the OpenPHD2 with ATIK support, it can be downloaded here:

At the moment it's setup for 10.10.1 64bit but I'll look at 10.9 once I have the initial feedback.

Here's the 414EX acting as a guider with my OpenPHD2 ATIK enabled build.

ATIK 414EX -> ATIK OSX Drivers -> OpenPHD2 with Driver integration -> EQMac -- pulse guide -> NEQ6.

I have to sort out a few mechanical issues with back focus on my OAG since changing a few things on the scope. As there's supposedly only a small window of clear sky tonight.. it's all about the guiding..

Spot the gust of wind in the graph :D
