Re: No consigo grabar saturno

Hi, that all looks pretty much fine, with a good final image. Your on screen images and histograms are all reasonable. It's difficult to be sure if you could perhaps get the focus any sharper - always hard with planetary imaging to work out if you are in best focus. You may also be able to bring out...

Re: Framerate

Hi, some things to consider 1) Typically only the height of the ROI affects frame rate, so if you change from 1920x1080 to 960x1080, the frame rate will not increase 2) Frame rate is limited by exposure time, so at 40ms exposures, you cannot get a frame rate above 25fps, since you can only fit 25 * ...

Re: Starlight Xpress Midi filter wheel crash

Hi Bruce, first, I see your logs are from 4.0.8025. I discovered today that I accidentally introduced a filter wheel related bug in 8025 that is happening in your logs. Please update to 4.0.8026, which should resolve this particular issue and at least get that problem out of the way. If you are seei...

Re: Starlight Xpress Midi filter wheel crash

Hi Bruce, in that log, the main problem appears to be that when you asked the wheel to move, it kept reporting that it was still in motion for more than the 30 seconds that is allowed for it to finish. So, I guess the questions I have are... Did it actually move when you tested it that time? If it d...

Re: Live stacking issues with Optolong LPro filter

Hi, there is something odd about the dark frame (when compared to the raw frames). The histogram peak of the red channel in the dark frame is at 2.2% of max value and is a rather narrow peak. The light frames have a slightly higher value for the histogram peak (about 2.4-2.5% of max value), but a mu...

Re: New IronPython version and numpy/scipy

Hi,

Code: Select all

SharpCap.ShowNotification(None)
will dismiss any notification that is showing, which should do the trick.

cheers,

Re: PHD2 Doesnt Connect Cameras - Does Sharpcap Impede the connection?

Hi,

changing to a thicker cable will make no difference, but running a second cable back from one of the cameras direct to the PC may well help cure the problem - it's certainly worth a try.

Re: Starlight Xpress Midi filter wheel crash

Hi Bruce,

can you grab the log for me - the 'in use' tag means that SharpCap couldn't open the wheel to get its name, which is weird. The log should have details of which part of that operation failed, which might just help explain what is going on.

cheers,

Robin

Re: Altair Hypercam 26C- My first CMOS Camera

Hi Brian, 1) What is ultra low mode and what purpose does it serve? ULN mode reduces (by about 10% or so) the amount of electronic read noise that gets into every image from the camera electronics. 2) Should I shoot in Ultra low mode all the time? You should use it for deep sky imaging or for live s...

Hi,

thanks for taking the time to create and share those files - I will test them out to see if I can see what is happening.
