Re: Sharpcap and Sequence Generator Pro

Hi all, I have tested the SC semi-automatic focusing and I got good results too. Now the best would be that the next version of SC would integrate a full automatic focusing feature, as the step seems not so big to implement it ! Also a pre-selected start value to avoid having to move the focuser to ...

Re: Sharpcap and Sequence Generator Pro

Hi mAnKiNd, Thank you for your swift reply. I'll follow your advice and try Sharpcap semi automated routine next time. If there is no other solution than switching between programs, which means disconnecting and reconnecting the camera, this is something I really do not want to test while imaging! C...

Sharpcap and Sequence Generator Pro

Hi, I am using Sharpcap successfully for several months. What I'd like to do now is to take advantage of Sequence Generator Pro auto-focus feature. Is it possible to use SGP auto-focus within Sharpcap features, I mean using Sharpcap for images capturing , processing and live stacking, and using SGP ...

Re: How to get rid of 'unusable' frame

Hi Saguaro,
Thank you for your advice.
From now on, I will always choose the live stacking 'sigma clipping' algorithm.
This advantage of 'sigma clipping' algorithm is also clearly explained in the sharpcap user manual.
Kind Regards.

How to get rid of 'unusable' frame

Hello all, I imagined M82 last night using Live stacking functionality of Sharpcap. It went quite well (see picture), but it happened that by change I also shot an artificial satellite. This frame was stacked with all the other frames, and the final image contained that non-desired satellite track. ...

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.

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.
