Finally APT 1.60 is here! Thank you for all your patience and help! The usual list of changes is:


2011/8/26 - v.1.60 New features and bug fixes

-Added: New User Interface. APT has a new look. All features are grouped in three tabs Camera, Telescope and Tools. Also there is different look for 4:3 and wide screens that gives optimal size of the preview.

-Added: Restore window mode and window resizing.

-Added: Keeping restored window position and size between APT restarts

-Added: Multi-monitors support. APT can moved through the monitors while is in restored mode.

-Added: Possibility to select bigger User Interface fonts for notebooks with big screen resolution and small display (full version only).

-Added: Dropdown lists have scroll-bars that can be used with mouse.

-Added: Shoot button can be used for Bulb exposures. In this mode the anti-vibration pause and long exposure control settings are in use.

-Added: Reminder to put on/off the telescope cap when you switch between Dark/Bias and Light/Flat plans.

-Added: Reminder to stop EOS Utility.

-Added: Reminder that Virtual long exposure control and Digic 3 camera combination will lead to amp glow.

-Added: Image browser (in demo version you can't change the folder). You can preview images and use them to build Framing Mask. When you shoot in RAW+L the browser will show only the JPG file because it is faster. If there is no JPG then RAW file will be displayed.

-Added: The images folder will not be changed after midnight.

-Added: Possibility to group the images, by Plan Type, Object Name or both (full version only).

-Added: Temporary images storage to cooperate better with Deep Sky Stack - Live.

-Added: AutoStar section now has Up and Down buttons (full version only).

-Added: Camera status in main window now shows Current/Remaining count during plan execution.

-Added: Exposures table will highlight the currently executing plan line and show progress.

-Added: Camera auto-connection on startup. If the camera is on it will be connected automatically.

-Fixed: the @@@ bug in file naming.

-Fixed: LiveView automation now uses 30s as exposure time.

-Fixed: Other small enhancements and fixes.

-Updated: User's Guide document (the new things are in green)

USD is strong now and makes APT cheaper for everyone out of EU... 12.70 Euro are now $16.50

Is there other astro gear that costs so low?
