Script for CCDSoft autoguider log new
      #5733044 - 03/14/13 09:35 PM Attachment (53 downloads)

I created a simple vbscript to create guiding error charts from a CCDSoft autoguider log file. The script creates a separate chart for each autoguiding session in the log and saves all charts in an Excel spreadsheet. I use the script in Windows XP and I have not tested it with other operating systems.

You'll have to change the extension of the attached file from txt to vbs.

Thanks for sharing the script Eric. I'm very interested in trying it.

Let me know if there is any issue with the script, if you make any changes or recommend improvements.

Eric, I changed the file ending from .txt to .vbs. Can you tell me briefly how to use it? I opened up Excel and then double-clicked on the VBS script and it gave me a runtime error 424.

Thanks! This script will be really cool to use

You don;t need to start Excel, the script will do this automatically.

Double click on the vbs file, a dialog box will open so you can select the log file. Click ok and the script will create an Excel file in the same directory as the log file.

What operating system are you using?

Eric

Eric, I am using XP.

I will record a new autoguider.log file next week and give it a spin. Thanks!
