Re: ZWO ASI533 MC Pro - Optimum Exposure Time ?

Hi @KEJ - have you tried carrying out a sensor analysis on your 533? I measured mine and the unity gain measured 111.

Fine control of the Live Stacking Histogram

I have just discovered (stumbled across?) the fine control of the sliders in the colour balance area. After clicking on a particular colour slider, I find it responds with very fine control using the up/down cursor keys. This has allowed me to make very pleasing interim stack results which I save 'A...

Re: Histogram controls

You are quite right - I had thought to try a two identical copy stack earlier on, however it seems I was/am trying to work with a 32 bit .fits file rather than 16 bit and it didn't work. However, following your post I tried the stack of two copy images of a 16 bit .fits file and that did provide the...

Histogram controls

I have recently discovered that the controls of the Live Stacking histogram are very powerful and and especially offer impressive fine control of the RGB sliders. The Auto stretch and Auto colour balance usually provide a good starting point for some tweaking but this tweaking often makes a very qui...

My capture rig processor is a 'headless' Raspberry Pi 4 running Astroberry Server (Astroberry.io) of whose collections of applications I am using KStars/Ekos/Indi. I control the capture using a Windows laptop via VNC Viewer. At vari...

Images stacked in random order

Live stacking works fine from camera folder but I notice that the numerical order of images stacked on reruns (nonreal time) is apparently randomised. Is this a bug or a feature? - just curious - it’s working well!

Re: No colour with Live Stacking of Folder Monitor Camera

Got there in the end! I actually uninstalled the program, cleaned up the register with CCleaner (removed one path remnant), deleted the registry entries remaining, and deleted all Astrosharp and SharpCap entries in \AppData\Roaming\etc. I then made a fresh installation and copied in my Pro license a...
