Re: latest version acting up

Chris, this happened to me using the latest version during my April 19th broadcast. Yes we can turn off PHD2 & SC but when you have a camera like ZWO where it's cooler rapidly warms up this is not good for potential frost/condensation. I am looking forward to when SC can finally have a stop feature ...

latest version acting up

Hi Robin Just a heads up regarding the latest version of SC. Sorry I did not capture the log but noticed a few issues last night during my NSN broadcast.

Re: Hot Pixel Removal

+++ for dark frame subtraction! This is really the only accurate way to remove hot pixels and that is why people who image use it along with removing dark current.

Re: SharpCaps offset/brightness

Hi Robin This was some excellent advice thank you. Prior to reading your very helpful suggestion, I took some bias frames using the shortest possible exposure at the gain & temperature that I would be using for EAA which was ASI 183MM at 170 & 270 gain and ASI 294MC at 125 & 300 gain. I used Maxim D...

SharpCaps offset/brightness

Hi Robin I have a ZWO 183MM camera and their lowest read noise ASCOM drivers use gain 270 and offset 10. I do EAA and use this setting but what do I put for brightness/offset 10 or 50 using the ZWO native driver since someone said that the offset is set for 5 x higher in SharpCap? Thank you! Chris A

Add a cool and warm sensor feature

Hi Robin I am not sure if this has been asked yet but could you please look into adding a cool-down and warm-up sensor feature for SharpCap. I think this is very important to have esp. a cool-down period to prevent thermal shock or separation between the heat sink and sensor. Most programs like SGP ...
