Re: QHY163M USB Issues

Hi, I have moved your posts out to a separate thread in the qhy subsection of the forums. If the camera is working correctly with other software then it is unlikely that the USB view data is going to provide the clues we are looking for. That tends to be most useful when the cameras refusing to talk...

Re: Version 3.2.6051 & 6054 ROI not working properly

Hi, What camera model and other settings are you using? I've just tested this with the latest code and a qhy 174M and it all seems to be fine. I can move the ROI selection area into each corner of the frame and I definitely see the part of the image that would be in that corner of the frame if I was...

Re: Sharpcal 3.1 license issue

Hi, You can always get the licence emailed re-sent to you by going to https://store.astrosharp.co.uk/Recovery and entering the email address you used to purchase the licence. Once you have the new copy of the licence email you will find it has a .txt file as an attachment that you can save to a flas...

Re: QHY183c TEC problems with Sharpcap 3.2

Hi Greg, If you turn on the extra logging by ticking the box near the bottom of the first page of the SharpCap settings, then pretty much all communication between SharpCap and the camera is logged. Of course the trouble is with doing that is that it's then sometimes hard to see the wood for the tre...

Re: Sensor Analysis doesnt work for ZWO ASI294

Hi, The last one is the easiest, just use your mouse to make the red selection area box bigger until the message about the selection area being too small goes away. Remember that the measurements are only taken from pixels within that box so you can move it around to find a nice evenly illuminated a...

Re: Filter Number in FITS header

Hi, If you're using an Ascom filter wheel then this should already happen when saving to fits files. Actually the name of the filter rather than the index of the filter will be what gets put into the filter header in the fits file, but hopefully that will be sufficient. I think it may also work for ...

Re: Are the Default 16-bit FITS Files Stretched?

Hi, In theory you are correct, but I suspect that in practice the scaling will be the same for all three channels because there will be some stars that will be saturated in all three channels in each subframe, meaning that the peak value used for the rescaling to 16 bit will be tied to the saturatio...

Re: SharpCap & PixInsight stacking

Oops, incorrect information in the first part of the answer. Save as 16-bit does not include the stretch and colour balance adjustments. The save with adjustments options further down the list does include those manipulations.the 16-bit is simply the raw data in the stack rescaled into the 16-bit ra...
