Eakins auto focus microscope camera
« on: January 05, 2020, 08:54:26 pm »
last night i finally got around to adding an X stage stepper to my eakins camera setup and added control to allow it to move back and forth from my pc app, so i wanted to be able to control the camera as well which usually just uses a usb mouse, so i did some stuff on it last night and today, and wrote it up.

I put a  prebuilt app on github, i'm still working on it, but enough of it works where i can do all the parts i needed, might need some poking at negative mf positions.

autofocus mode
./talk a
manual
./talk m
move to position 200
./talk p 200
etc, see code for rest of commands.

i wanted to try capturing multiple images for a focus stack test.

step from 140 to 155 and capture image each step.

for var in `seq 140 155`; do ./talk p $var ; ./talk C ; done

Thanks, now the cracks on those lead-free solder joints can make me 29% more nervous.  ;D
