I haven't restarted the sensor analysis yet, but I thought you might need to know that when I tried installing the 3.3 beta, first of all AVG antivirus did not like it at all, and the install showed an error. The log said something about not being able to open a ...

Sensor analysis failing

Hi, I've tried to get this to work a few times on my EOS1000D running the open ASCOM drivers. I'm having the same issues described here: https://forums.sharpcap.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2997 - either it fails because the image is too dark (towards the beginning of the analysis) or it's too light (about...

Re: Polar alignment - should I see this?

Thank you Robin - but I'm not actually guiding. This is from my camera. Does that make any difference?

Polar alignment - should I see this?

Hi, So I've been getting to grips with polar alignment. Tonight, I got the best yet, really close to perfect. Then, out of curiosity, I set my scope to the home position, took a shot, plate solved it, and sent the result to Stellarium. This is what I saw: polar copy.jpg Polaris is only just about in...

Excellent suggestions, thanks Robin. I found the troubleshooting page that I think your previous reply was based on so I will be going through that first. Thanks again.

Re: Polar alignment not even close

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I really appreciate it. Robin, I will go through your recommendations when the clouds next part which, in the UK, will probably be around November 2021 at this rate...

Polar alignment not even close

Just spent two frustrating hours checking and rechecking everything. I'm pretty sure I've specified the correct coordinates in the settings, and also tried using the settings from the ASCOM mount. On every occasion, what Sharpcap was telling me was WAY out from what my mount's polar scope or apps we...
