oaCapture 0.0.6 release imminent

I’m just about done with this release now. I have the source distribution sorted and am now just sorting out the builds for the binaries, then we should be good to go.

There are some fixes for niggling bugs in the ASI and QHY camera handling in this release, but the two main changes are the start of integration with GNU autotools for configuration/building and the ability to build on OSX. I’ve tested on Mavericks and my ASI120 works fine with the “compatible” firmware release from the ZWO website (which currently requires Windows to upload to the camera) and the QHY5 and QHY5L-IIm both work.

Open Astro Project website finally live

I’ve been meaning to sort this for some time and now finally got around to setting it up.

This site is for distributing (mainly) software forming part of the Open Astro Project — open source astronomy-related software. ┬áThe first element of this is the oaCapture image capture application, mainly aimed at planetary imaging on Linux.
