Calculating Dithering in New Sequencer Sharpcap 4

Sorry for my apparent stupidity. Say your brain/smart histogram calculates an exposure of 2min 30 seconds and 40 exposures based on your inputted preferences. If you want to dither every third frame, what should your dither setting be? Am I being really dumb here? Should the interval always be MORER...

Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

Hi, I would say still 2 months or so off full release - the more people who test it the faster we will iron out the bugs :) Right now it's fairly stable, but I would suggest building the sequence first and doing a test run in daylight (maybe except for focus etc). Then you have some confidence that...

Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

Hi Robin, I have the latest Sharpcap Pro official version. How far off are we with the full update 3.3? I'm looking to dither via PHD2 NOT Live Stacking. Is this beta version "almost there"? Additionally Ive had issues with my Pole master freezing, as yet unresolved so I would want to be ...

Re: Best plate solver for Cartes Du Ceil Sharopcap Pro

Thanks Chongo, I seem to have got my head around the communication with Cartes Du Ceil and so I just slew and then hit solve. Thanks for your help, very much appreciated.

Re: Best plate solver for Cartes Du Ceil Sharopcap Pro

Hi Chongo, plate solving worked tonight. I wasnt sure how when I used CDC to slew to my target and if it was off, so when it slewed it was off. I then hit plate solve buttom in the scope controls and it did slew to target, not sure what I did but it seemed to work. I heard that if your initial slew ...

Re: Best plate solver for Cartes Du Ceil Sharopcap Pro

Thanks Chonga. Can I ask you a question. Once I polar align I have to put an eyepioece in the scope and get CDC to slew to a target to do an initial sync. Because Im always having to set up and tear down after every session sometimes my home position is slightly out so CDC is never on target. At the...
