    Default Planning an Update

    I am busy planning an update, specifically to try to speed up the process of synchronizing ImageMan and Scheduler databases.
    So, I am open to any requests for additional features, enhancements, etc to be included in the updale.

    Dale, I'm not familiar with your ImageMan program - is there a site you could point me to, so I can learn more?

    Hi Colin, I'm sure Dale will answer this, too, but in the meantime here's a link to a previous posting of his which has some information that will be useful for you:

    Colin, Dale's done a good job developing this tool. I have been using this for managing my images, though I don't worry about the Scheduler interactions since I don't use Scheduler much. I have some 100,000 individual images taken over ten years, and taken in a series of a couple hundred at a time in short exposures on eclipsing and other rapid variables to do eclipse timings and light curve development and analysis. I needed some way to understand this collection in a more synoptic way.

    Hi Colin,
    The standard version has not changed much and should still be OK to use.
    The Scheduler version uses the Scheduler database and its structure to index your subs and to relate them to your projects, plans, observations and image sets.
    This provides a much more powerful way of managing your data.
    The problem is that there is a multitude of ways users use scheduler. If everyone references all the levels in their ImageFileConfig, I would not have any problems, but that sadly is not the case at all.
    My previous version tried to address this, but was not successful for all users - so I am working on trying to solve this.
    The help files are also outdated and I need to update.

    Dale
