What is AstroDMx Capture for Linux?
AstroDMx Capture for Linux is a fully featured astronomical image capture application for 64-bit Linux Operating Systems and the Raspberry Pi3 running the Raspbian Stretch with desktop and also Raspbian with Pixel.
The project was started by Nicola Mackin FRAS in order to produce a stable astronomical imaging application for use with the Imaging Source DMK, DFK and DBK range of cameras. Since then, the project has grown into a fully featured capture application written specifically for the Linux platform.
The software currently supports Imaging Source cameras, ZWO, QHY, Atik and many webcams suitable for planetary, solar and lunar imaging. The software saves output in SER 8 and 16-bit, TIFF 8 and 16-bit, AVI, Windows Bitmap and FITS.
For a full list of supported cameras, please see Supported Cameras
Near term future plans for the software include implementing full support for the INDIGO / INDI specification and a way to save and recall application settings by creating profiles.
