Niche Question - Anyone Start JEXIFToolGUI (Or Any Application) From A Bash Shell Script??

Ok this is a niche question.

I take photos of satellites (yes at night) and submit them to an astrometry site to "resolve" them. This allows me to use the photos to generate observations so a group can generate orbital information, etc.

A pal wrote a Bash shell script to take several photos (all in the same folder) and submit to the astrometry site and get the results back into a second folder. What a huge time saving!

I also use JEXIFToolGUI to get the actual precise time of the shutter and would like to have the script start up that "application" as well. This of course has proven to be a huge challenge. The script is in the Terminal but the application is in a package in the Applications folder.

Maybe someone here has done something like this?

One option is to have another installation of JEXIFToolGUI as a command line application...
