Re: Request for Framing assistant

I have just been improving the pixel readout feature (both with this in mind and also because seeing the directions of RA/Dec etc has helped me iron out some bugs in the code).

Here's what it looks like now - not sure if it will be helpful or not

Re: Sensor Measurement Feature - Read Noise

Hi Martin, first the easy bit - 8 bit read noise. At minimum gain, in 8 bit mode, sensors tend to have a very large e/ADU figure - for instance for the 174 sensor, this value is about 132e/ADU. If you consider the definition of the read noise to be root_mean_square(measured electrons - actual electr...

Re: A brief introduction to the SharpCap Sequencer

Hi,

currently it's not possible, but it's certainly something that has been requested before - it's in the list of possible new features, but no idea on when it might happen yet.

sorry,

Robin

Re: just to say Im more than happy with SCap best ive used.

Hi John,

glad to hear that you've had a great experience with SharpCap. Currently we are not selling long term licenses, but we do receive the occasional request, so it's something we will consider.

cheers,

Re: QHY183 on Sharpcap Pro updated

Hi, not a bug that I have encountered - is it possible the sound from the PC is the one that Windows makes when a device is unplugged? I could imagine that perhaps if the camera reacts badly to the temperature update it could disconnect from USB (it would also vanish in device manager). That might a...

Re: Unable to Find Selection Box for Focus Tools

Hi, if the 'Selection Area' button on the toolbar is not clicked then the Bahtinov tool will use the whole image area and cannot be adjusted - I think that is what is happening when you say it is using the full frame. By default, when you start SharpCap and select Bahtinov, the selection button is n...

Re: Problem with importing dark-flat along with a dark

Hi Joe, basically you put the dark flat frame in as a dark frame, then capture your flats using the 'Capture Flat' tool. Once you've done that, the flat that is saved has the dark flat correction in the file, so you can deselect the dark flat under 'preprocessing' and select the real dark for the im...

Re: Updating to the lasted SharpCap sorftware

Hi,

did you perhaps have 3.2.6480 (32 bit) and then install 3.2.6482 (64 bit) (or maybe the other way round)- you can have the 32 and 64 bit versions both installed for 3.2 separately.

Re: Does Sharpcap integrate with any planning tools?

Perl is pretty easy BTW, it rips through text files like a chainsaw, and what can possibly go wrong with using a chainsaw.... Cut off both feet in one go maybe :D I have one perl script I wrote that runs on my Linux server and monitors my energy monitors and PV panel output. If I did it again now I...

Re: New Feature : Double click on image to recenter

Hi, I think I found two issues in this feature in further testing: 1) A difference between Astap and Astrotortilla/ANSVR/ASPS about whether the image starts with y=0 at the bottom or the top - this meant that the vertical movements were correct with Astap and inverted with the other solving engines....
