Automated Video Tracking of Planes


Senior Member
So I've got my program mostly ported to Python 3 now using TKinter as a GUI.

Automated tracking with ASCOM still needs tuning, I haven't quite wrapped my head around implementing a Kalman filter properly, so it oscillates pretty badly. LX200 control is working at least as well as my old visual basic version ever did, and the UI is 10000% better. Even just designating the target works way better now.

What the program saw during automated tracking is shown at the end of the video.
