Hi Robin

Please let me know when the beta is ready for testing 3.2 and I would like to be part of the beta testing if it is okay with you.

Thank you!

Is it possible to communicate with PHD2 from Python script?
This could be a temporary workaround untill dithering is implemented as a new feature in Sharpcap.

Having such script, one may take series of frames with dithering between each frame, with the necessary pause for PHD2 to settle after ditering.

Should be - all the docs you need about talking to PHD are here : https://github.com/OpenPHDGuiding/phd2/ ... Monitoring

All you need to do is create a TCP connection to PHD and pause/resume stacking around the dither commands. (All, he says!)

cheers

Robin
