It was missing from the documentation, but I've just added some initial details to https://codeobsession.com/observatory/doc/#editor-overlay

Yes. Instead of choosing File ▸ Export as PDF, first choose File ▸ Page Setup and select Landscape as Orientation. Then choose File ▸ Print, and at the bottom left select "Save as PDF". There are more options there if you select "Show Details", e.g. multiple items per sheet, enable borders.

Is it possible to export to PDF (with the overlays) in landscape mode to fill the page ?

Wish List / Re: Some more fields for images
« Last post by Cherokee on April 30, 2019, 07:09:02 AM »
Hi Sander,
I have an field in my mind for the name/type of Reducer/Barlow together with the reducing/stretching-factor to the native focal length
It could realized with the existing native "focal length" field for the telescope  following a field for the Reducer/Barlow-Name + Factor and a calculated field containing the effective focal length.
But I do not know if that is too special or too much.

File ▸ Import ▸ Locate Source Folder… could be used for that, but right now it doesn't work recursively, so it's not very practical for this purpose.

Observatory will indeed ignore the black/white points for plate solving. These are for displaying only. If plate solving with astrometry.net works, then plate solving using Observatory's blind plate solver may work as well, since it uses astrometry.net. However, I suspect you will still need to calibrate your images with flats first.

Hi Joerg,

Gain, ISO and pedestal (offset) are coming in the next update.

Total exposure duration or number of stacked images is something Observatory can determine itself when stacking. This would indeed be a useful enhancement.

What do you mean by "reducer/barlow"? A separate field from "focal length"?

Hi, I missing some fields for images:
gain/iso
in the field duration is it in the moment only possible to enter the hole duration-time, but no in the way like 15x5min/sec (stacked image). I think this is good to know for a picture.
reducer/barlow


Thanks, Joerg

General Discussion / Re: Syncing two copies of Observatory on two different Macs
« Last post by Cherokee on April 29, 2019, 07:03:58 AM »
Hi,
I have so far the same problem. I think to share the Observatory-Library itself  ist not the problem. I share Library and Images with a Nextcloud-Sync. My problem is that the absolute paths of the images are not identical because the Mac-users are different: for example /Users/userid/Documents/astroimages/... (my private and business Mac has different Userids).
Is there a way to resync the library without to loose all manual definitions?

Best regards Joerg
