Re: SC Crashes After Update

Hi Robin! Thanks for the suggestion. I just went ahead and did a PC reset on the Dell since I didn't have much loaded on it. I downloaded Atik's core package, ASCOM, and SC 3.2.6086.0 which I know works for my set set up and all seems to work now. The only issue I'm having since all this has happene...

Re: SC Crashes After Update

Good news! After numerous attempts to delete and reload the ASCOM drivers, the latest Atik software, and rolling back to a previous SC version on my Dell imaging PC, I was still getting the RPC error crash message. On a whim, I downloaded the latest version of the Atik software and the SC ver 3.2.60...

Re: SC Crashes After Update

Hi Robin! Thanks for your response! The crashes just really surprise me since SC ran perfectly during a session just last week. I did roll back to a SC version from August and unfortunately I'm still getting the same crash reports. I'll dive into ASCOM some more to see what may be amiss. Wow, if you...

SC Crashes After Update

Hello! I downloaded the latest update over the weekend. Although previous versions of SC worked fine as recently as last week, I am getting continuous crash messages when starting up the latest version. I used the "Send and Quit" option multiple times earlier today...not sure how that gets uploaded....

Re: Subtracting darls /flats in live Stacking

Hello Robin- Thanks for the explanation! Well, I'm happy to say that I was able to spend some time under the stars last night and had great success with imaging the Pleiades while using Dark Subtraction. The histogram peak did move slightly left with each frame but still had plenty of room for black...

Re: Subtracting darls /flats in live Stacking

Thanks Robin! I'll inspect the drift during my next session but I don't recall it being significant. I am guiding using PHD and have a reasonable sine wave pattern. Yes, if I don't adjust the mid and black levels, the image darkens noticably on each frame. The black level adjustment "maxes out" fair...

Re: Atik Horizon and SharpCap

Thanks Robin! I'm now a SC Pro licensee and enjoying all of the the increased functionality that comes with it. I did post a question today concerning something that I'm noticing while pre-processing with dark frames "on the fly". It's posted on the tail end of a existing thread in the Live Stacking...

Re: Subtracting darls /flats in live Stacking

Hello! As a new SC Pro licensee, one of the features that I'm incorporating into my work flow is dark frame subtraction on the fly while stacking. What I'm finding is that when I pre-process with my saved dark file...same sub exposure time, sensor temperature cooling setting, etc., ...each new frame...

Atik Horizon and SharpCap

Just wanted to thank Robin and the SC team for whatever interaction they may have had with the good folks at Atik Cameras in order to perfect the ASCOM drivers for the Horizon! The latest core software releases from both companies allow me to fully control my new Horizon mono with SC via ASCOM. Alth...
