Start Taking Pictures1
Once you have connected your camera to the computer and opened the LPI program, youll want to start taking pictures. Follow the steps below to start taking simple pictures with your LPI camera. We recommend that the first time you take pictures, you do so during daylight hours. Point your telescope at a stationary landmark, such as a building, telephone pole or so forthtrees and other objects that move slightly are not the best objects to use during your first image tests. 1. Click on the Auto Adj button (3). See Auto Adjust Button, page 16, for more information. 2. Click on the combo box controls in the Object field (10) to display a list of object types. Scroll down the list and select Terrestrial. See Object, page 17, for more information. 3. Type a name for the object in the Object Name box (11). This will be used as the image file name. See Object Name, page 18, for more information. 4. Click on the combo box controls in the File Type field (12) and select JPEG. See File Type, page 18, for more information.
5. Click on the Live tab (17). See Live Image Check Box, page 16, for more information. more.
Start Taking Pictures2
6. An image should be already displayed on the screen (25). Use the focuser on your telescope to focus the object. Notice that in the Magic Eye Focus field (22), that two triangles are displayed and change their size. The Magic Eye Focus will help you focus your image; see Magic Eye Focus, page 21, for more information. If you are having a lot of problems focusing your image, see The Parfocal Ring, pages 14-15.
7. Click Start (14). The camera begins taking pictures and will continue to do so until you click on Stop. Watch the Status box (24) in the bottom left-hand corner. When Images reaches 50, click the Stop button (14). Go to the next page to find out what the program is doing once you press Start.
What Happens When You Press Start1
The live image is displayed on the programs display screen if the Live box is checked and the Live tab is selected (these are the default settings). When you press Start, the LPI camera begins taking images and continues to take images until you press stop. The LPI program uses the first 10 images it takes as a baseline to compare with the images it takes subsequently. In other words, the program is always comparing images. Note: The user can change the amount of images that the program uses as a baseline. See Evaluation Count, page 17, for more information. The program takes images with the best contrast and quality and assembles the best of these images into one image; this image is referred to as the composite image in this manual. After you press the Start button, the composite image is displayed as a new tab above the display screen. When you press Stop and select this tab, the final version of the composite image is displayed. After about 10 images are taken, the LPI program applies a sharpening filter to the composite image. You can choose which sharpening filter you wish to use from the most to the least sharp, or none. You can change the filter setting while the camera is taking pictures. See Kernel Filter, page 17, for more information. Further image enhancement or filtering may be performed in other image editing software, such as the supplied Image Processing software or Adobe Photoshop. Make sure you select an image type that can be opened (such as JPEG or BMP) by the Image Editing software.
What Happens When You Press Start2
The LPI program is continually resaving the composite image. If the Save Every Image box is checked, the program will save every image that added to the composite image (see pages 17-19 for more information). If your PC crashes or loses power, the images that have been taken up to the time of the crash or power loss will automatically be savedthe user does not need to save them manually. The LPI program continues to composite the image until you press the Stop button. Typically, about 50 images are needed to get a high quality composite image. After 50 images, the quality of the image increases only in small amounts; about 90% of the quality level will have been accumulated with about 50 images. When you press Start again, the LPI program begins to accumulate a new composite image and renames the image in a new tab. For example, if you named the first image Building, the next images will be named Building 2, then Building 3 and so forth, so that it doesnt overwrite the previously saved images. If a name/number was previously saved as a file name, the program will choose the next available number. For example, if Building 7 was previously saved, the next file will be named Building 8. Note that controls that are not currently available are grayed out.
The Parfocal Ring1
It is extremely useful to have the LPI camera and a telescope eyepiece be parfocalit will save you time when you need to refocus. Parfocal means setting two or more eyepieces to the same focus. (In this case, one eyepiece is a camera.) In other words, if you focus one eyepiece in your telescope, then you remove it and replace it with a parfocal eyepiece, the parfocal eyepiece will require little, if any, refocusing. The following procedure will show you how to make your LPI camera parfocal with a low-power wide-field 25mm or 26mm eyepiece (do not perform this procedure with a high-power eyepiece). Use the supplied parfocal ring and perform the procedure during the daytime.
The Parfocal Ring2
1. Open the LPI program. 2. Insert the LPI camera into the telescope eyepiece holder. Do not tighten the eyepiece holder thumbscrew. Make sure the LPI camera slides down as far as it will go into the eyepiece holder. 3. Point the telescope at a terrestrial object that has a lot of contrast with the surrounding area and if possible, has a distinctive edge (like a building, for example). 4. If you have previously moved the histogram sliders, move the top slider to the 0 position (move all the way to the left) and move the bottom slider to the 256 position (move all the way to the right). 5. Click on the Auto Adj. (3) button. 6. An image which may be or may not be focused appears on the display screen. 7. Use the telescopes focuser to get a rough focus of the object. Be patient. You may have to rotate the focuser back and forth until you can achieve focus of the image. 8. When the image is roughly in focus, remove the camera from the eyepiece. 9. Place the supplied parfocal ring over the bottom chrome tubing of the eyepiece. Do not tighten the ring. 10. Place the eyepiece and tubing into the eyepiece holder. Do not tighten any of the thumbscrews yet. See photo at right. 11. Do not use the telescope focuser in this step. Lift the eyepiece (but not the parfocal ring) until the object is focused. 12. When the object is focused, tighten the parfocal ring. The eyepiece is now parfocal with the LPI camera. Do not remove or change the position of the parfocal ring or you will need to repeat the procedure. Now, instead of focusing the camera with the telescope focuser (which is somewhat difficult and time consuming), insert in the eye piece/parfocal assembly and focus the eyepiece as you normally would. Then remove the eyepiece and replace the camera. Youll find that the camera is focused and may need only minor focuser adjustment.
Automatic Adjustment Controls
Gain and Offset sliders (1): Similar to a TV sets contrast and brightness controls. These controls are automatically set after you pick an Object (10) type and click on the Auto Adj. button (3). Most users will seldom, if ever, need to set these controls manually. Auto Adj. button (3): Automatically sets the Gain and Offset controls(1) and the Exposure setting (2) for the camera. Before taking pictures, choose an Object (10) type and click on the Auto Adj. button. This will adjust the camera to give you the typical contrast and brightness you need to take pictures for the type of object you have selected. You can further adjust the picture by adjusting the Exposure (2) setting, Histogram sliders (19), Filters (9) and focusing the telescope (see Magic Eye Focus, page 21, for more information). Exposure setting (2): Use the spin buttons to change the camera exposure (either up or down) by increments of 0.5 f/stop. Mono check box (4): Check this box to take a black and white picture. Status box (7): Displays status of Automatic Adjustment control operations. Live Image check box (5): Click to display live camera image in the Image Display (25). Dark Sub check box (6): See Dark Frames, page 27, for more information.
Image Processing Controls1
Take Picture Tab (8): Click on the Take Picture Tab to display the Take Picture controls. Setting Tab (8): Click on the Setting Tab to display the Setting controls. Align and Combine (9): Selects a minimum quality level that is acceptable when images are added together to produce the composite image. Typically 50% is selected. You may wish to set it lower (e.g., 30%) if you have an image that has a lot of turbulence or other noise, but should try adjusting other controls first, such as the Exposure (2) setting, Histogram sliders (19) and Filters (9). Also try refocusing the telescope. Object (10): Displays a list of objects to view, such as Mars, the Moon, terrestrial, etc. Adjusts some of the image processing settings to preset levels that will assist you in better quality images for the select object. Also Take Dark is on this list; see Dark Frames, page 27, for more information. Click on the Min Quality % spin box to change the minimum quality level. Evaluation Count allows you change number of images accumulated and evaluated to determine a quality baseline when the Start button is pressed. Normally, 10 images are evaluated (this is the default number). Click in the spin box to change the number of images used. Track check box: Check this box if you wish to have the ROI track the centroid. See Tracking Boxes and Centroids, page 23, and ROI, page 24, for further information. Combine check box: Normally, you will leave this box checked. If you wish to take raw images that are not combined into a composite image (you may wish to process the images yourself), uncheck this box and check the Save Every Image box. The LPI camera will take images and save them in the Image directory. Kernel Filter: The chosen sharpening filter is applied to the composite image as it is saved and is displayed in the live Display Image after about 10 images are accumulated. 3 levels of sharp filters, 1 edge only filter and None (no filter) are available.
Image Processing Controls2
Object Name (11): Type in a name for the object. Each time the LPI program begins to accumulate a new composite image, it renumbers the image in a new tab, using your original name. For example, if you named the first image Building, the next images will be named Building 2, then Building 3 and so forth, so that it doesnt overwrite the previously saved images. If a name/number was previously saved as a file name, the program will choose the next available number. For example, if Building 7 was previously saved, the next file will be named Building 8 and will not overwrite the file Building 7. File Type (12): Click on the combo box controls in the File Type field (12) to select the type of file format in which to save your picture. Beginners are recommended to save their pictures in Jpeg format. However, if you wish to perform further image processing, select BMP or Fits. The last two formats, Fits and Fits3P are raw formats, are for use by advanced users. Tif files usually take up the most memory, but may be a useful format if you plan to use Adobe Photoshop. Save Every Image check box (13): Normally images are added together make up a composite image or if they have too low of a quality level, they may be discarded. However, you may choose to save every composite image the camera creates by checking the Save Every Image check box along with checking the Combine check box (see page 17 for more information). These images are not displayed as separate images; only the last saved composite image is displayed. These files are stored in the directory you have chosen using the Image Directory field or the default directory chosen by the program during installation. If you wish to view any of these files, Click on the Open button (28), and then choose the file from the directory. If you uncheck the Combine Box, but keep the Save Every image box checked, the program does not combine any images to create a composite image, but saves every picture. If you set the Min Quality % box to zero (0), every picture will be saved also. The number of images the camera takes is displayed in the Status Displays (24) and the name on the File Name tabs (17) change with each new composite picture. Start/Stop button (14): Press to start or stop the camera taking pictures. See What Happens When You Press Start, page10, for more information.
Image Processing Controls3
Image Acquire Status bars (15): Display while the LPI camera is taking pictures.
Image Directory field and Browse button (26): You may select the directory in which to save your images. Click on the Browse button to locate a directory or type in a directory path in the field. Or you may just type in the directory name in the field. If you type in a new directory, the directory will be created when the first image is saved. Dark Frames Directory field and Browse button (27): You may select the directory in which to save your Dark Sub. images. Click on the Browse button to locate a directory or type in a directory path in the field. Or you may just type in the directory name in the field. If you type in a new directory, the directory will be created when the first image is saved.
File Settings Tab
Open button (28): Allows you to open a file you have previously created. Click on this button and your directory list displays. Choose the desired file and it opens as a tab above the Image Display window. See diagram below.
Notice that there are scroll arrows (see diagram above) at the end of the tab row. Click on these arrows to display more composite image file tabs. Close (29): Allows you to close a composite image file tab. First click on the tab you wish to close, then click on the Close button to close the file.
Magic Eye Focus
The Magic Eye Focus displays a graphic representation of the focus as you adjust your telescopes focuser. The orange triangles grow together to indicate better focus. The red lines indicate maximum focus levels.
Avg (Average) check box: Check to average the last 5 focus values to smooth out noisy images. Note, however, that this makes the focus response more sluggish. Reset button: Resets the red maximum indicators.
LPI Camera Program
Tracking Boxes and Centroids
Drawing a tracking box allows you to track (that is, to follow) a bright spot that is surrounded by a dark area. This is very much like your telescopes tracking feature. A centroid is the spot where the crosshairs meet. You can use the centroids to help you center an object in a box. The centroid is used for shifting an image before it is combined in a composite image, and also is used for autoguiding. To create a tracking box, just use the cursor to draw a box around an object. For your first tests of this feature, try to choose an object that is bright and has a dark area surrounding it. You can experiment with this as you get familiar with the function. Check the Track box; the box now moves to keep the object centered. If youre tracking a crater on the moon, draw the box about the center or a bright spot in a crater. Normally, you will check the Track box. However, if youre imaging the moon or a terrestrial object, uncheck the Track box. The box will now remain stationary, but the centroid will follow the bright spots (but wont move the box location on the screen). You can turn tracking on and off while you are creating a composite image.
Histogram Display and Controls
The Histogram controls allow you more control of the brightness, contrast and mid-range tones of your LPI camera. Experiment with these controls. Select an easily focused terrestrial image and adjust the Histogram sliders. You will notice the Live image growing brighter or darker, and even notice mid-tones becoming more visible. You will have to adjust these sliders differently for each object and can adjust the sliders on the fly as you are creating a composite image. Note: The effect of the sliders is saved in all file types, except fits and fits3P. LOG check box: Makes the Histogram response logarithmic. ROI: Creates a histogram for just the part of an image that is inside a tracking box.
For users familiar with the product, the LPI camera functions in a manner similar to the Meade Pictor 201XT CCD Autoguider. An autoguider helps keep an object centered so that a 35mm camera can take long exposures of an image. Note that you do not have to set the LPI camera for a long exposure using Exposure controls (2). Autoguiding is used typically with telescope mounted in the equatorial mode, although it can also be used with LX200GPS Telescope mounted in the alt/az mode. To use the LPI camera as an autoguider, perform the following procedure. You will need an off-axis guider (see the Meade General Catalog for more information) and the supplied serial cable that is appropriate for your model telescope. You will also need to know the focal length of your telescope. 1. Attach the off-axis guider and your 35mm camera to your telescope as described in that products instruction manual. Insert and tighten the LPI imager into the eyepiece holder. 2. Go to the Object box and choose Autoguide from the list. 3. Attach one end of the serial cable to one of your PCs comm ports and the other end to the telescopes RS-232 port. 4. Select the Comm port number from Comm Port box. 5. Click the Chk Scope button. If there is an error (cable, version, port, etc.), an error message displays. Check to make sure your cable is properly attached, that you have the correct port number selected and so forth. If the telescope connection is verified, you will receive a passed message. more.
6. In the Focal Length field, type in the focal length of your telescope. 7. Locate a star using your telescopes alignment and Go To procedures. Focus and prepare the imager as described earlier in this manual. 8. Draw a tracking box around the star. 9. Click the Start button. 10. When you click on the Start button, the program begins to calibrate. It then begins to autoguide your telescope and displays X and Y error coordinates in the Status Display box (24). 11. Click the Abort button (the Start button renamed) when you are finished. If you dont move your telescope or rotate the guider assembly, you do not need to recalibrate. However, if you wish to recalibrate, click on the Reset Cal button. Note that you do not need to check the Track button to use this feature.
Dark Frames is a useful feature for if youre taking exposures longer than 1 second. Longer exposures and temperature can create noise in your LPI camera called dark current artifacts. The Dark Frames feature allows you to subtract out some of this noise from your pictures. Perform the Dark Frames features at night. If the temperature changes significantly during your observing session, you should repeat this procedure. To perform the dark Frames procedure: 1. Select Take Dark in the Object type combo box (10). The Dark Frame Exposure controls display. 2. Select a range of exposure time. For example, if the length of your exposures will be between 2 and 5 seconds, set the First Exp (Exposure) box for 2 seconds and the Last Exp box for 5 seconds. The LPI program will then take a series of dark frames image files between 2 seconds and 5 seconds in length at approximately 0.5 f/stop intervals (about 1.4 seconds apart). Later, when you set your camera exposure time (see Step 6 below), the LPI program will automatically select the Dark Frame file with the closest exposure length, scale it to the actual exposure time and apply it to the image you are taking. In effect, it subtracts out the dark current artifacts. more.
3. Select a value for the Avg Exp box. This is the number of exposures that are averaged together to create each composite Dark Frame exposure. Typically, set this value to 10. 4. Click on the Setting tab (9). The Dark Frames directory field displays. The Dark Frames will be saved to this directory. You may change the directory if you wish. 5. Click the Start button (14). A message displays that tells you to cover up your telescope or LPI camera. Replacing the lens cap on your telescope is sufficient. The program erases all the old Dark Frames files in the directory, and takes and saves the new Dark Frames series. When all the Frames are taken, Done displays in the Status Display (24). Notice the Histogram display; it will reflect the Dark Frames that are being imaged. 6. Select an exposure in the Exposure Controls (2). The Dark Frames feature is used with Longer exposures, so your exposure time should typically be longer than 1 second. 7. Check the Dark Sub check box (6). The Dark Frames feature is automated, so Dark Frames will automatically be applied to any pictures you now take. 8. Remove the lens cap from your telescope or uncover your LPI camera. Begin taking pictures as previously described in Start Taking Pictures. (See page 10 for more information.) The Dark Frames feature is automated, so Dark Frames will automatically be applied to any pictures you now take. Note that if you are taking longer exposures, better results will be achieved with black and white (mono) images: Check the Mono check box (4).

The imager contains a color CCD sensor from Sony which has fine 752 x 582 pixel resolution and it has magnification similar to a 6mm eyepiece. You'll be able to capture imagery of deep-space objects such as nebulae with remarkably good clarity. The Autostar Suite software package contains every imaginable capacity for both guiding your scope electronically and documenting what you're seeing with stunning accuracy. You'll be able to control your scope remotely over the internet! To utilize the Autostar Suite software you'll need any Meade telescope with either the Autostar II or #497 Autostar computerized controllers. This includes the LX200GPS line ETX-90 ETX-105 & ETX-125 telescopes as well as the LX90 series. You'll also need a USB port at least 98 MB of RAM space upon your computer a CD-ROM drive and a Windows 98 SE ME 2000 or XP operating system.
