Hello, There is no bug report on QHY183 with built in driver because the software is frozen :( . In fact when playing with the liveview buttton: I see that the Liveview mode is working but not the Still mode.

Re: SharpCap Still Mode

Hello, I made a beta test of Sharpcap 3.3 with the QHY183. The way to build the sequencer is very good :D. I am happy to test it in the sky: I will get rid of Maxim DL. On the QH183 In fact the still mode does crash Sharpcap if I use the "built-in" driver. If I use the ASCOM driver the sti...

Re: SharpCap Still Mode

Hello, This version 3.3 with Live view and still mode is a very good idea. :D I like Sharpcap very much with the built-in driver instead of very slow ASCOM drivers. I am doing deep sky imaging with sequencer not planetary so synchronizing the dithering after shooting was a big aim for me. I don't se...

Read out noise

Hello, Sharpcap was originaly for planetary but right now is used for DSO due to a lot of functionalities. With CMOS cameras there are frequently 2 modes: video and single. Does read out noise change between each mode? Does Sharpcap use those modes or is not applicable? In CCD we can choose for low ...

Zoom and selected area

Hello, Cameras have more and more pixels. The "Auto" selection of zoom works well but when we zoom to 100% it should be great if the zoom should point directly to the selected area to avoid playing with the cursors "and gloves in winter..." to find the small selected area lost so...

AA1600 Hypercam BIN2

Hello,
When I switch from bin1 to bin2 the camera is frozen.
The resolution is going to 2320*17523 but camera is freezing.
To solve I must choose manually 2320*1752 (not 1753).
Not crictidal when we know perhaps easy to fix?
Thanks

Re: Altair 1600 Pro TEC power cut off

There are good news there because for sure during deep sky imaging I stay in 12 bits. So fixing the issue when changing binning and ROI is a good improvement! :).
Is it possible to do an update of sharpcap for this? :D Best Regards

Altair 1600 Pro TEC power cut off

Hello, When I change the binning of the camera I hear that the FAN and TEC stops for few seconds and restart. I have some dew issues and I don't like that the FAN and TEC always stops and restart while changing settings. I don't have this issue with AltairCapture. Could you check and explain (fix) t...
