Re: Questions about Japanese localization of SharpCapUserManual

Hi, Even with moving the files to the directory that you suggest and going to the properties of the ChM file and choosing the unblock option (which removes the warning on opening files downloaded from the Internet), the best I can get is this Capture.PNG I do wonder if it is because the files within...

Re: QHY5III224c Problems with 3.2

Hi, Not sure it sure what you mean by 'planting'. I don't have the exact same model as you to test with, but I have the QHY5III-178C and that works fine with the latest SharpCap. At full resolution it runs about 50 frames per second but you can easily get up to 130 or more by running in an ROI mode....

Re: QHY294C - Sensor Analysis

Hi Greg, I've certainly seen some cases where some pretty weird image frames come through shortly after changing camera settings on the QHY cameras. To try to deal with this SharpCap waits for five frames after making a change before it starts measuring the brightness (in theory to allow the brightn...

Re: 64 bit SC Crashes

Hi Richard, I think it is sulking because you have two copies of SharpCap running and it doesn't know which one of the two you want it to monitor. I think it should be okay if you only have one running. I'm not expecting rolling back any other software to help – this is likely something to do with t...

Re: Sharpcap Pro <-> Astrotortilla interface

Hi, There's no need to set up any settings in AstroTortilla, since SharpCap bypasses those and sends its own settings to the plate solving engine. There is one setting to configure in SharpCap in the plate solving configuration page, which is the 'Sigma' level. This determines how high above the bac...

Re: Slow motion

Hi,

What sort of exposure where you using? Was it in the range of a few seconds, tens of seconds or more, or a fraction of a second? I have noticed on some cameras the image seems to run a few frames behind 'live', which sounds quite like what you are experiencing.

Cheers, Robin

Re: SC Crashes After Update

Hi Craig,

I think that you need to change your preferred still image format to fits in the settings for the dark files to be created in fits format.

Re: SharpCap not responding when connecting to mount

Hi, Thanks for the update. Interesting that it seems to be related to the focus controller rather than the mount. One thing that may be worth trying is going into the hardware settings and deselecting the option that connects the hardware automatically when you open the camera. Once you've done that...

Re: Questions about Japanese localization of SharpCapUserManual

Hi, Sorry not to get back to you sooner. I've downloaded the translated version and I did notice a couple of things that didn't seem quite right. First, when I opened the CHM file I see the titles of the sections on the left-hand side, but the text of the document never shows on the right-hand side....
