Re: The telescope control panel does not show up

OK, so the Help->Check for Updates doesn't work. I manually downloaded the latest version from the website, and that one does have the problem fixed.

Re: The telescope control panel does not show up

Hmmm... when I tried last night, it said no new updates. I will check again when I get home.

Re: The telescope control panel does not show up

From the other thread, I gather that the QHY SDK is as done as it is going to get for a while. So, can I expect to see this fixed pushed out now? ;)

Where does SharpCap store the flat file?

Hi, I created a flat file yesterday, going through the procedure to collect 10 samples, etc. Everything seemed to go fine. But, I am not clear on where that flat file got stored on my hard disk, so I can retrieve later. Thanks.

Re: The telescope control panel does not show up

Also, just to let you know, the "whole sky plate solving" menu item works just fine with this folder watch camera, and solves the plate. Of course, it is a pain to manually copy and enter the co-ordinates into Stellarium. Also, the display goes away rather quickly. Is there any hacky way to enable t...

Re: The telescope control panel does not show up

Yeah, I know the feeling (being a software developer myself!). Just when you think you have it figured out, some customer comes up with a use case that you thought was silly.

Is there a way to make it show up? I want to plate solve using the latest capture file from the folder, an...

Re: Plate Solving woes...

Ah, I wasn’t aware of the two types. The Telescope control panel was not visible on my small screen, so I didn’t know it was there. That seems to work fine and solves fairly quickly. As for the sigma setting hint, the log has a line like “simplexy: found 85 sources”. Is that the number of stars dete...
