Craterlet OS X (0.3)Download 0.3 or Download 0.2
Craterlet for OS X is designed to give Mac users simple capture application for DCAM-compliant firewire cameras such as those from The Imaging Source (sorry, the iSight is not DCAM-compliant). It's main application here will be to let you stream planetary or lunar images to disk. However, given the long-exposure options present in these cameras, other applications (e.g. DSO work) will certainly exist.
Currently, this is an early release. Heck, it may stay an “early release” forever. I have tested it with a monochrome camera (DMK 31AF03.AS) and with monochrome and color Unibrain Fire-i cameras. Images can be streamed to disk in BMP, JPEG, PNG, or TIFF formats (and SER in v0.3). On color cameras, it will stream color images, currently using the camera's onboard debayers even if pure RAW modes exist. I welcome bug reports and any other assistance users can provide in testing. Let me know what camera you are using, what modes show up (note, you can only selet a mode while Preview is not active), and how it behaves.
- Added support for SER format. This is a RAW format that can be read by Registax. What’s great is that you can now stream a file rapidly here on the Mac and process the data in Registax. It’s possible this has broken support for a number of cameras, so I’ve left 0.2 up as well. (Remember, this program is far from prime-time).
- Note: If using a color-bayer DMK camera, make sure to select the “RAW” mode from the Mode pull-down. It may show up as “Y800”, “RAW RGB” or “Mono-8”. It won’t be called “Color”. Also, odds are the correct selection when asked what the sensor format is “GBRG”
- Initial pre-release
Craterlet OS X is freeware. OS X 10.4 is required (some chance it will work with 10.3.9).
