Complete Automation in APP's future?
APP is fantastic pre-processing software. I'm hoping that before long we will be able to use it for complete pre-processing automation.
In this scenario, APP would load all of the images after the night's imaging session (based on say, nautical sunrise time), load the master calibration frames and run a chosen set of parameters.
This could include mosaics as well if user could pre choose the set of parameters.
Then, when the user gets up in the morning, there would be images ready for post-processing.
APP could also do some basic post-processing too.
Exciting times ahead.
