Re: Nebula Photos on Superbowl Sunday

Thanks Nick.
All those targets and crummy winter weather! We had sort of a false Spring here this week and a few really nice days. Now winter is back with a vengeance.

I checked out your Rosette nebula photo... great detail in there giving it a lot of depth - nice!

Nebula Photos on Superbowl Sunday

Instead of watching the same old Superbowl, I took my 80mm APO out for first light. Got it for Christmas, but this was the first night with good weather! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pX5kaHtL5vrIPfseap0GcNlBNJBiwElZ These were taken near Hiram, GA in the US (N33d50m, W84d50m) using SharpCap 3.2...

Re: ZWO ASI385 Highspeed Frame Drops

Hi Robin, That makes sense... The ASICAP version I'm using is v1.5 released on 11/15/2018... However I don't think it showed up on their website until early December. They've added a histogram and probably a few fixes. By the way, I hope your recovery went well last month and happy Holidays! Thanks!...

Re: ZWO ASI385 Highspeed Frame Drops

If it is a poor USB communication issue, wouldn't I also have the same issue with ASICAP (the ZWO capture software)? On the same computer with the same cables, I don't seem to have the issue with the camera in ASICAP. Of course ASICAP is not as capable as SharpCap, so it is less taxing on the CPU, b...

Re: ZWO ASI385 Highspeed Frame Drops

Hi Robin, Thanks for responding. I've tried adjusting the turbo USB settings to very low, auto, etc..., but no luck fixing the problem. What I really find strange is that it functions completely normal in RAW16 mode, but not RAW8... of course the high speed frame rate option is only available in RAW...

Re: WiFi Camera Connection

Hi John,
Thanks!... I believe that would do the trick.
I never heard of the "Compute Stick" before now, but very cool!

ZWO ASI385 Highspeed Frame Drops

Hi Guys, I'm having an issue trying to use my ASI385 camera in highspeed mode in the most recent Sharpcap 3.2. The camera works fine in the RAW16 color space with frame speeds up to 65 fps using the full sensor ROI... essentially no dropped frames. When I switch to the RAW8 color space (which is req...

Re: Gradient Slider in Live Stack

Hi Robin, I just started back with some astrophotography after a long hiatus. I uninstalled my old version and I don't have a screen shot. But I did find it being used in a YouTube video (SC v2.7). Here's a link, the demonstrator starts using it around 3:40 into the video. It's the slider that chang...

Gradient Slider in Live Stack

I miss the gradient slider in the live stack histogram.
Can that be added back... or is there a setting/plugin for the current version that gives that control back?
I know it is really post processing, but so is the live stack in general, and it's great for EAA.

Thanks!

WiFi Camera Connection

I'm wondering if it is possible to connect my ZWO cameras to SharpCap via a wifi connection... like through the ASIAir device.
I was thinking about getting an ASIAir, but only if I can use it with SharpCap.
