Dithering Aggressivity

I just did some research on dithering and thought I'd share my findings. If you don't know already, dithering is a process that introduces some intentional, random movement in between your individual images.

Re: Complete Beginner: Starting from scratch

- I can control the mount when it's directly connected via the frontside USB port. In other posts it was recommended to use the USB port on the handset instead. Is this still valid or is ok to control the mount directly through the front USB port? I can answer this one. I have a very similar mount,...

Re: INDIGO to GO is on the App Store

Peter -- Astro* version 3 doesn't include devices called "Imager Agent" etc., right? My code is looking only for the agent properties. Any recommendation?

Re: INDIGO to GO is on the App Store

Hey there! Thanks for trying these. What versions of the Astro apps are you running? I admit I tested only with v4 -- I should probably test with v3 right?

indigosky works very well. I just got a notice to update, in fact.

Re: INDIGO to GO is on the App Store

I am thinking an agent inside the network. Specifically, the upcoming Mac version of Indigo to Go. Mac = agent in network, iPhone = client outside network. Hopefully very simple to configure without ever knowing your IP address :-)

Re: start indigo-server at boot?
