ASI071 Minimum Exposure Time

According to the ASI071 manual the minimum exposure time is .064mS. Sliding the exposure control all the way left sets the exposure to .032mS. This results in an unknown exposure setting. By experimenting with the histogram during the day I found that .076mS appears to be the lowest exposure that is...

Re: Flat Frame Not Applied to Live Stack

Yes, MONO and RGB both have the flat applied.

Thank you for the work around. Until the fix is available I will use RGB for EAA.

Re: Flat Frame Not Applied to Live Stack

I tested back to version 3.1.5027 and found the problem was present even then.

Flat Frame Not Applied to Live Stack

While using Version 3.1.5059 tonight I believe that my flat frame was not being applied to Live Stack. However, the flat frame appeared to be correctly applied during a live view. I determined this because there was a rather prominent dust donut on the lower left. In live if I selected and deselecte...

Automated Flat Frame Exposure and Gain

Is it possible to do for flat frames what you have done for light frames?

By this I mean, an automated process that measures the flat frame and determines the best exposure and gain.

Re: SC 3.1 Sensor analysis and Smart Histogram

This post answered all of the question I had for the sensor analysis except one:

Capture Dark/Flat Frames

Whatever you set the number of dark frames to capture you get 1 more than requested.
Whatever you set the number of flat frames to capture you get 1 more than requested.
In the file structure a Bin of 1 does not get it's own sub-file. All other Bin values get a separate sub-file.

Dark Library Creation

While making a dark library this weekend I came up with the following. 1. I had to manually account for the BIN setting because the BIN setting is not included in the path or file name. 2. The number of darks to capture resets to 10 after each capture. I was using 25 and had to remember to set the 1...

Set Priority to High Fixes Lock-ups on Surface Pro 4

I was having significant issues with SharpCap locking-up or freezing. However, I believe I have found a solution. Set the SharpCap priority to High. I have found this to make my Surface Pro 4 run much smoother and not lock-up. Real-time may also work, but I have not verified this. The priority will ...

Re: ASI1600MC Debayer Pattern

I found a related matter.

Changing "Color Space", "Capture Area", or "Binning" resets the "Output Format" to "Auto". This can caused files to be inadvertently captured in a file format that was not intended.
