OpenLiveStacker - is an open source application for live stacking for Linux and Android.
I'm getting into EAA, but the big stopper for me is a cumbersome setup and one of big inconveniences is need to bring a laptop to control the camera and do the live stacking and even more so as Linux user I don't really have viable solution even if I bring a laptop. Since we all have quite powerful computing device smartphone or tablet, if I only could connect an astronomical camera directly to a smartphone or tablet...
So I implemented it and released as open source... (my two hobbies open-source software and astronomy connected)
In the nutshell
- Project Page: https://github.com/a...OpenLiveStacker

- ASI ZWO and UVC camera support (like SVBony sv105/sv205) and generic directory reader "camera"
- Support of calibration frames: darks, flats and dark flats
- Plate solving using ASTAP
- Support of manual and automatic stretch, auto white balance.
Beta 4 release Chanegelog
- Android - fixed major issue with stability of background processing of the application.
- Now a notification that shows that OLS is active is always shown as notification
- Process does not exits while working in background.
- fixed exiting from the application
- Fixed UI issue with camera parameters settings - added button with clear way to submit new value
- Added support of plate solving for stacked frames in addition to live frames
- Added information of how much to move in RA/DE & Alt/Az coordinates to make accurate corrections of location after plate solving
- Added support of discarding stacked result in case we don't want to keep it
- Some UI code refactoring
