Re: Folder Monitor Camera

Hi, Thanks for submitting the bug report – I think the problem is that you are trying to test the functionality on files that SharpCap does not have full access to in the install directory. I will fix this for the next update, but the problem shouldn't happen if you use files in a folder that SharpC...

Re: SXVF-M25C not recognized as colour camera

Hi, SX colour cameras are supposed to have model numbers bigger than 128, but it looks your camera has snuck in with the model number below that value which means that SharpCap thinks it's a monochrome camera.

Re: Capture overrun

Hi, Did you happen to notice if the frame counter had got stuck on the occasions when the capture doesn't complete? I'm wondering if the camera had stopped responding to SharpCap? In that case SharpCap would never hit the target frame count and would carry on waiting in the probably vain hope that t...

Re: QHY camera sometimes not exposing correctly.

Hi, In my experience waiting for five frames seems to be enough for changes to take effect. Stopping/starting or restarting the preview should also make sure that the first frame that arrives after the restart has the correct settings. You shouldn't need to go as far as closing the camera or closing...

Re: Calibration frames applied 'inappropriately"

Hi Aaron, Yes, I agree that the bright dots in that image look like hot pixels against a low-level background of noise. It may be that the DSLR camera uses some software tricks to try to eliminate things like hot pixels ( there was a time when Nikon cameras did this rather enthusiastically and would...

Re: Stuck between images during sequence

Hi,

Please can you capture log file after the problem happens and post it here? I just tested with a zero gap between captures and it seemed to work fine, but it may be that it requires some other specific set up to happen – for instance a particular camera or particular settings.


Thanks, Robin

Hi,

I actually uploaded that new build last night, so it's ready to test whenever you have a chance.

Re: Omegon 385C - Slow frame Rate

The only thing I can think of at this point is to go back to the camera manufacturer and ask them how the ROI is supposed to work. The fact that it is there but does nothing does seem to indicate perhaps a bug in the direction driver.

Cheers, Robin

Re: SyncToTarget() RaDec sync rejected

Hi, I just tested tracking rate problem and I see that myself when using the EQMOD simulator, so I should be able to work out what that is and fix that hopefully. I suspect that the failure to sync is probably down to EQMOD being clever. There are at least two modes for how it can handle sync comman...

Re: Live Stack not saving in correct folder

Hi, in the end I only got this to break once - after that it just kept working as it should :( That meant I haven't been able to fix it, but I have put in extra logging so that if you can break it again the log should contain info that will help track down the cause. Please use latest version (3.2.6...
