oacapture 1.5.0 released

As we approach the winter solstice, it’s time for a new release…

Major changes for this release include:

  • Update to latest ZWO camera SDK
  • Add support for ZWO filter wheels
  • Make the handling of ROI/cropping cleaner
  • Improve handling of FITS files
  • Added support for the Lodestar X2
  • Try to fix slow start-up/shutdown on MacOS
  • Allow a settings file to be specified on the command line
  • Attempt to fix handling of the Neximage 10
  • Add support for Touptek, Altair and Mallincam cameras when the manufacturer’s software is also installed
  • Update user manual

And there are quite a few bugfixes, too.

Binary downloads (DMG files for OSX, .deb and .rpm files for Linux) from the downloads page. Source is available from github.

I don’t have builds for Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04 on 32-bit ARM processors yet. Hopefully that’s coming soon when I can get OS images that work.
