Astro Script Question

Post by bgre033 » Fri Jul 22, 2022 4:41 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to get the below astro script to work with a Canon 90D, using digiCamControl 2.1.4.0. Two photos get captured, but the Capture Time doesn't seem respected. Both images end up with a 10 second exposure and the wait time in between is about 1 second. Is this a bug or am I just doing something wrong? ISO and Aperture work correctly.

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<dccscript UseExternal="false" SelectedConfig="">
  <commands>
    <bulbcapture capturetime="3" iso="500" aperture="22.0" />
    <wait time="9" for="camera"/>
    <bulbcapture capturetime="6" iso="3200" aperture="4.0" />
  </commands>
</dccscript>
I've also noticed that the wait time displayed in the GUI does not match the script file (.dccscript). Whatever I enter in the GUI does not get exported to the file and vice versa.

I'm happy to try this with TCL, but I cannot find a sample script for the above.

Thanks for any help.
