Summary0001854: Option to includeCamera Cooler Set point in the image filename.
DescriptionMy camera only cools to ~-10 below ambient. As a result I change camera setpoint 2-3 times through the night, often in the middle of a sequence. It would make post processing much easier in selecting the correct Dark frame.

Probably too much trouble but having the program reset the cooler temp based on current temp falling below preset would really nice.

Thanks for your consideration.

I add and option to include the camera temperature (rounded to the tenth) in the filename:

But this is the real temperature at the end of the exposure, as already present in the FITS header.
I not see the interest to indicate the Setpoint value as it can be totally unrelated to the required dark if the cooler cannot reach this point.

I also not see how to detect automatically that the setpoint can be changed, normally the regulator prevent the temperature to fall below the preset by lowering the cooling power.

The Temp setting works well except its placed before the date-time portion of the filename; That creates a Filename name sorting issue. Windows sorts on the slightly variable temp that is recorded (ie. 5.1C, 4.8C) and sub sorts the date-time AFTER that. My reduction programs that automate reduction use the filename as opposed to the Fits header to order the images in a series.

If its possible to have the Temp as the last part of the name thus keeping the sorting of Date-Time as the primary order?

For a long time I have the project to allow to reorder the elements of the name and folder as wanted, this is a good time to do that :)
Now you can drag and drop the rows as you want using the sequence column.

This is in revision 723:

And version 0.9.20 is now available with this change.
