I have no idea if this can be useful to someone here, but just in case, I wanted to post my attempt at automating guiding through OpenPHD2 here such that it can benefit to everybody.
It looks like I am converging toward something usable (has been succesfully tested with the indi telescope/mount simulator):
I started to integrate this class itself in my equivalent of panoptes observatory class:
- dithering upon update_tracking
- reset and start guiding upon initialize_tracking
- launch_server and connect upon unpark
- disconnect and terminate_server upon park
However this integration as a whole remains mostly untested up to now.
Thank you for your attention.
