My Feature Suggestions

I keep hearing the call of APT, but resist it as SharpCap keeps getting more features and delivering good results. Using TeamViewer I'm able to manage imaging sessions from indoors and recover from most bad situations (typically PHD2 throwing a wobbly). I would prefer to avoid scripting if possible,...

Re: Dropping Frames During Polar Align

Hi Robin, Last two sessions have been fine, but on the first of these I had terrible connectivity issues with PHD2 (refusing to find the guide cam, even though Sharpcap could see it) and CcD (refusing to find the mount, even though...)

Touptec Mono - Dropping Frames

This afternoon I happily took 24 5-minute and 24 2-minute darks with a Toupcan Mono while having PHD2 running on the other camera (ASI120MC), no trouble. This evening, Sharpcap drops every frame except the first unless the duration is 7.5 seconds or less. Exactly the same settings and wires, only di...

Here's some of my Sharpcaps

This is a selection of some images taken using Sharpcap with a Microsoft Lifecam (mostly) and my Skywatceher 150PL + 2x barlow (actually x2.1 because I have an IR filter between body and lens) http://www.stubmandrel.co.uk/images/Astronomy/Planets/Triplanetary.jpg http://www.stubmandrel.co.uk/images/...
