Just in time for Christmas, oacapture 1.3.0 is now available to download.
Major changes for this release include:
- The latest ZWO SDK for ASI cameras and updates so the application has more knowledge of newer cameras.
- Support for the QHY IMG132E. Mostly just to see if I could do it
- Improved handling for the QHY5-II and QHY5L-II
- Support for turning camera controls on and off where available
If you have a Touptek, Altair or Mallincam camera on Linux and the vendor-supplied application is installed in the default location then oacapture should be able to use that to support the same cameras, which is a bit neater than previous attempts to handle these cameras. For Altair I’d recommend using the most recent beta release of their software. I’m still working on finding a neat way to do this on OSX.
There are also numerous other small enhancements and bugfixes.
