I guess I should really clean this up so the UI works in real world units and not APEX96 ones.  I can steal the code from one of my other scripts pretty easily and release as yass4 !

Thanks, you're great!!
I needed a constant compensation value, that is set before starting the script.
I don't think changing it on the fly is an option, because pushing buttons would introduce shake and could change framing a little. I never touch the camera, once the script starts.

If the script could use real world values, that would be even better!

Ah,  but that's where having the ability to read from a USB remote in the script comes in handy.

Stay tuned.
