Re: Zoom

Hi,

Any thoughts on this?

I want to create a toolbar button to 'setup for focusing' which would:
* set the Zoom to 100%
* set exposure and gain
* Reset screen stretch
* turn on bahtinov mask.

then create another button to revert these changes ready for capture.

Thanks.

Re: TargetName

Same thing with the frame type. I can set the value with SharpCap.FrameType, but the GUI does not show the new value.

It would be VERY useful to be able to do this.

Thanks.

Re: Save Current Image

Hi folks If you have not changed any camera settings since the last frame and you press the snapshot button then it should save the frame that is in view (i.e. the most recently captured one) rather than waiting for a new frame to be captured.

Re: Save Current Image

Hi Dave,

When they are 600 to 900 second captures, it can save a bit of time (if I stuff up).

Save Current Image

Hi,

A few times I have done a test capture (long exposure) and neglected to hit the Snapshot button. The capture is displayed on screen but I have no way to save this captured image to disk.

Could I please request a feature to save the current preview image to disk.

Many thanks.

More Obvious Pause

Hi, I use the pause button while capturing, in order to do a manual dither. When I do a pause (i.e. pause = True), the button does not look obviously active. I have wasted a few 10 minute captures when I accidentally left pause on. Perhaps the bause button could change colour when active? Thanks.

TargetName

Hi,

I can change the SharpCap.TargetName value fine, but it does nto actually change the display on the screen.

Is there a refresh function (or the like) to update the display?

Many thanks

Zoom

How can I change the zoom level of the preview window?

I can't find it anywhere in the object model.

Thanks.
