Re: Crashing during flat capturing

Hi Robin,

After testing again, what I have understood is that I can create 'valid' flat frames using Sharpcap, but I cannot use them (and any other flat frame created by other softwares) with Sharpcap because my old CPU does not support SSE4 instructions.

Am I right?
Thank you.

Cheers
Remy

Re: Crashing during flat capturing

Hi Robin,

Thank you for your quick answer.
Unfortunatelly I am in case 1 with my AMD Athlon II processor :(

Nevertheless, as Sharpcap saves a flat picture before crashing, can I use this image for further pre-processing?
Thank you.

Cheers.
Remy

Crashing during flat capturing

Hi, I tried to capture flats using my Atik 314L camera and Sharpcap 3.2 Every things went well till Sharpcap crashed at the end of the capture (see screen shots) Same problem occured whether I checked tick box 'Capture and subtract bias frames' or not. This problem does not occur with Sharpcap 3.1. ...

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Dave, Thank you for your advice . I think that I'll buy a bahtinov mask asap. I have retried M27 using Sharpcap focusing tool last night. As you can see below, I got better results than with previous M42, because I think I had mist on my camera window pane that former night. Sharcap app is workin...

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Robin,

I used sharpcap 3.2 this morning to imagine M42 and it worked well also.
I only need to improve focussing now!

See picture.

Cheers.

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Robin, Bingo! I have used sharpcap 3.2 to imagine M57 to night and it works, alignments were found and I could stack the frames. Please see attached the results. I have just a question: why does the saved as seen image still show the detected stars boxes? Thank you again for your help. Cheers Rem...

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Dave,

I would be really interested to 'grasp' your settings if you could imagine any of M27 or M57.
I didn't use my reducer 6.3 on the C8 when I first tried imaging with sharpcap.
I don't think this would have changed the alignment problem I am encountering.

Thank you.

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Robin, Hi Dave, I was using my 102/714 ED refractor (I also used my C8 telescope but with same alignment problem). Clear coming nights are forecast in the Alps where I live, so I will imaging again according to the settings Robin have advised. I' ll provide more pictures including individual snap...

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Robin, I have tried again imaging M57, but with the same problem that is no alignment. As you can see on the attached screen shots, stars are actually detected, but with no stacking. I hope that the attached screen shots would help you finding the reason why I still have this problem. Thank you. ...

No alignment found!

Hi, I am a new user of Sharpcap. Everything is working well but I still have problems with stacking the frames. I always get the following status:" Frame not stacked because no alignment found". What does it mean, as stars are normally detected. What's wrong with me? I am using Sharpcap with my Atik...
