First frame not stacking

Often my first frame does not stack and I get this warning

8:06:16 PM WARN Frame not stacked because : Could not obtain write lock within 1s

What does this mean?

Re: Dither not starting on 2nd target

Is the code change "disabling and then re-enabling the 'Monitor PHD2 Guiding' option " in the Nov 03 update.

Re: Dither not starting on 2nd target

Happened again last night on my second target. This time I recognized the message in the guiding status and just restarted the program. Until you figure out the issue, perhaps you can just use the live stack "clear" button to reset the guiding to the initial state similar to when the progr...

Re: FWHM Units

Yes a double click where you want the box centered would be great.

FWHM Units

Are the FWHM units pixels? I wonder if the scaling was arc seconds then it might be more useful. I use this software for many different setups and the FWHM is quite different for each scope. Maybe if there was a place to enter the telescope particulars and account for binning, then an actual calcula...

Histogram showing saturated pixels more clearly

I wonder if the horizontal scale on the histogram where the 100% saturated pixels are shown could be moved to the left to be able to better see how many are there. Plus maybe a quantity or % of pixels of R G and B are in saturation displayed. I would like to check this when setting gain and exposure...

Re: Dither not starting on 2nd target

Ok,here are the logs. Hope you can see something. It uses about 10-15 minutes waiting to see if it will dither and then reseting everything to get going again.

Dither not starting on 2nd target

I have started to dither on every 1 or 2 frames to take advantage of drizzle integration. It all works fine for the first target of the night and SharpCap and PHD2 work quite well together. The issue happens when I go to the next target. The dither often doesn't start, and usually there is a status ...
