Is there any limitation about number of parameters?  ;)

Would be interesting to have an option in parameters, start_hour=-1 than start_min and start_sec are not seen.
For beginners it might be helpful to have a rawopint version with a simple UI...

CHDK only looks at the first 4 KB of the script. So rawopint is getting fairly close at ~3.3 KB

So, a scripting language for the script menu?  :D

One thing I would like to do is to add more types to the CHDK menu system. So you could have a shutter speed input with the same UI as the CHDK override, zoom that knows the cameras actual zoom range, time in one field of hh:mm:ss etc.

That would make it easier to understand and more compact.

Yes, but I'm not sure which ones to remove, and I don't want to maintain even more versions...

The other thing I've thought about is making a tool to generate the configuration offline.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Just a sub menu…

Yes, but I'm not sure which ones to remove,

I have some rawopint versions with different UI. I never removed the option; I put them as constants in beginning of script. For me that's okay.

I couple of parameters I calculate like Max Tv
Interval >= 4s; Max Tv = Interval - 2s
Interval < 4s  Max Tv = Interval /10

The most important parameter which I normally use is shots, interval, max ev change, ISO min/max, over threshold / weight, display mode and waring LED.
For threshold, limit and weight I use in 99% defaults.


I don't want to maintain even more versions...

I can understand that well…

Here's one of my attempts at the last lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, the moon is much overexposed in the end. Since the parameters probably did not set correctly…

Especially for such recordings, there should be a simpler solution. For example, I would allow -1 for the Overexposure threshold. In this case, the overexposure would have the highest priority and the exposure would always have to be reduced. That would be similar then what lapser has suggested with his regulation on pmax.
